Dr. Stephen A Young has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

He does not want you to talk

Dr. Young is a legend in his own mind. He ask questions and then does not listen to what you say. He is always right, just ask him. A problem that I was having and was proven by other doctor's he just ignored. Then after 3 years with him he diagnosed me with narcissism. This because I stated my opinion. I would have stopped seeing him after the first few visits but the program I was in used him. Stay away at all costs.

Doctor's Response

It's difficult to respond to this comment - as I'm not sure who the patient is or when I saw them. For the last three years I have been working for the US State Department - and (unfortunately) have not been able to follow patients for long term treatment due to moving overseas and covering a region. So I'm guessing this is a patient I may have seen in the past. Three years is a long period of treatment, so I suspect some good may have come of our interactions - and am sorry that you came away so unsatisfied. All I can say is that I try very hard to provide the best care possible - but I also believe a psychiatrist has an obligation to tell his or her patients the truth - even if that truth is sometimes painful to hear. I genuinely hope you were able to find someone to work with who you found helpful....and I'm sorry they found me non-empathic and a poor listener.
