Christopher Young Wausau Gastroenterologist


My wife and I started this practice back in 1991. We both trained in Milwaukee at the Medical Center. We were trained in advanced endoscopic procedures. We came to Wausau because we loved the area and wanted to bring advanced gastroenterology to central and northern Wisconsin. We both love the outdoors and enjoy many outdoor activities. Primarily we love fishing, kayaking, hiking, and snowshoeing. We also love taking our three golden retrievers (Maxwell, Benjamin, and Abigail) on long walks in the woods. Over the course of my career, I have performed well over 50,000 procedures. My personal care philosophy is to always try to provide the best experience I can for my patients. We strive to be available for them when they need us, and provide the best possible advice we can for them.
