Scarred for Life - Bellevue, WA

Dr. Philip Young broke a bone in my jaw by screwing in jaw implants and breaking the jaw bone. This bone sat floating around under my skin for 7 months.

I could not work, I could not leave my home as the blood needed to be drained every 3 hours. Then, after attempts to find the cause of the infection, I pushed the jaw bone through my own flesh and the infection stopped.

Now I have permanent scaring and can only move my neck 70% of what I used to be able to. Dr. Young tightened my platysma (neck) muscle too tight, which is called a "Neck Lift". I am 34 years old and he gave me a neck lift. This was a poor diagnosis as I have been to 3 other doctors who call his work very unprofessional.

The only thing Dr. Young says is that he finished in the top 5% in his class. This is the only statement he can stand on.

Stay far away from his clinic.

Dr. Philip Young broke a bone in my jaw by screwing in jaw implants and breaking the jaw bone. This bone sat floating around under my skin for 7 months. Only after I pushed the jaw bone through my own flesh, did the infection stopped. The original operation cost me $15k. I have currently spent over $8000 in finding doctors to fix his work and still have another $3000 to go before I am 80%. I could not work for 7 months and I will never be back to my original self.

Wow.... so sorry about what has happened. I don't understand the copy and paste response by the doctor below. How does that adequately address the patient's concerns?

It is difficult to believe the complaint or the Dr's comments. I don't understand why the patient is not engaging the best lawyer possible and suing the the PS. Further, for the PS to comment that a competing PS would make those comments, makes one wonder about him as well.

I think his complaint is very believable.

OMG!!! I'm so sorry to hear of this absolutely nightmarish experience you went through! Was it that you went in for a chin implant and instead he gave you a supposed neck lift? You had to have been in excruciating pain for 7 months! Is there any way to replace the jaw bone that was removed? Very sorry, indeed...Please stay blessed! :-)
