Specialties

Dr. Young M Song has the following 3 specialties

  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • 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.

  • 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.

Rude

Did not explain anything to me about the procedures I had done. Was very bossy and told me what to do in a very unpleasant and rude way. Completed the procedure and just got up and left the room without saying a single word.

Patient

I was referred to dr.song when my previous neurologist accepted another position. I thought upon our first few visits that perhaps she was overwhelmed with new patients, or adjusting to a new and busy clinic/practice. I say this because she is/was difficult to communicate with, highly impatient and very "short ", bordering on rude. I have serious neurological conditions and have been receiving what I would say is very good care in three states for twenty years. Dr. Songs care absolutely provides no positive or beneficial outcome for me any longer.

One Star

Dr Song was not helpful nore did she take the time to address my issues. She is an awful Dr. Her lack of followup was outrageous. She did not seem concerned with treating my stoke nor taking future preventative measures. If you or a family member are in need of medical care for a neurological issue seek care elsewhere.
