In a world where patients spend more time with a P.A. or a nurse than their physician, Dr. Stephen De Young stands out. He believes that a correct diagnosis can only come with the individual attention that he gives to each person. Never hurried, always listening and not relying on test results alone, he is an unparalleled diagnostician. He often discovers conditions unrelated to the issue for which the patient is being seen, creating a more in depth diagnosis.
