Dr. Austin is awesome Doctor! We like him a lot. But in the over 2 years my husband has only seen him a couple of times. Very disappointing. The Office staff is RUDE!!! Wait is always long!!! They are doing drug test every single visit witch would be fine but over 2 years, it is ridiculous. he has never failed one. Insurance pays for only 4 a year. Staff makes you feel as if your name and a check book. It's sad that people are in pain and having to wait as long as they do in waiting room.
