Very competent doctor, and polite and positive person. She always listens and responds to my complaints. I called the office when I had health problems and easily made an appt. with doctor Austin the same week. I completely trust her experience and knowledge.

Doctor Austin is a wonderful doctor. She is very knowledgeable and caring. I was a basket case with my breast cancer and she calmed me down and explained what we were going to do. Made me feel much better.
