I went to Dr. Austin’s office on Monday the 29th to get a physical. She was very receptive we talked about my medications as she did her exam and then sent me down to get a blood sample everything was very professional and she took the time to listen to me which a lot of other doctors didn’t. I would recommend her to anybody.

Dr Austin is a throughout Internist,who also takes the time to know you and is NOT in a hurry, something very important to me. She also got back to me almost IMMEDIATELY when I sent a mail trough my chart regarding a question I had about my labs. This is my first interaction with her, however she has taken care of my wife for two years and she is very confortable with dr austin too. She referred me to her as a matter of fact

I absolutely ADORE Dr. Austin, she has been my PCP for a number of years!!! She has the most amazing bedside manner and every visit is better than the last. Not only is she MY PCP, she’s also my family’s PCP. We couldn’t imagine being cared for by anyone else! She honestly feels like family now! If I could’ve given her 10 stars....I certainly would have!!! We love you Dr. Austin!!!! :-)))

Dr Austin is an excellent doctor. I have been seeing her for a number of years and have recommended her to many of my friends.

First of all I want to start by addressing the first comment. This dr is very young, however she is very knowledgeable. This person that left this comment is probably old and use to the way things were done in the 60's. This dr calls you back pretty much immediately if there is a issue. She is very hands on, and she be determine to resolve your issue. Her nurse is just as creditable as her. I highly highly recommend Dr Austin, she was also recommended to me.

Not very knowledgeable. I don't have confidence in the choices she makes. She's very young, and obviously relies on the computer to validate decisions when prescribing medication. I am looking for another physician. Would not recommend to anyone, unfortunately.
