Seymour Young, MD, Board Certified in Neurology, focuses on diseases of the central nervous system: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and neurology-related infectious diseases.
After receiving his medical degree from State University of New York at Stony Brook, Dr. Young completed a residency at University of Massachusetts Medical Center and followed with a fellowship in neuro-rehabilitation at UCLA.
“As a student,” Dr. Young says, “I excelled in the sciences, which drew me to a career in medicine. I was interested in both physical medicine and psychiatry, and neuroscience represents an ideal blending of both.” The relationships he builds with his patients while diagnosing and treating their sometimes mysterious symptoms appeals to Dr. Young. “These conditions are often chronic in nature. My relationships with my patients tend to be long-term, and I get to know them quite well.”
Since 1989, Dr. Young has continued to build upon his broad neurology background and experience, which includes a teaching position with the Department of Veterans Affairs and a private practice at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles. For many years he provided neurology services to the indigent at the Venice Family Clinic, assisting patients in a managed care setting. He takes particular satisfaction in caring for his patients with neurological complications from HIV/AIDS, and served several terms as chair of the Institutional Review Board for the nonprofit AIDS Research Alliance.
“Eisenhower is a great fit for me,” he says. “I’m free to concentrate on the needs of my patients. We’re in it together.”
