I can not say enough about the incredible care Dr. Austin and his office staff provided my son who has multiple health issues including Asperger's Syndrome. Dr. Austin was AMAZING in working with Xan. He went well above and beyond what I could ever imagine or expect. From the day of Xan's consult to the removal of his braces - Dr. Austin and his staff listened to my concerns, worked with us, and adapted their "normal" way of doing things to help Xan through his visits. We are so very grateful
