      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.

      She is the most cold hearted and cruel dr I ever met. My mother had stage 4 lung cancer and never returned my calls. She told me my mother wasn't her only patient when I finally was able to talk to her. After my moms scan, she was supposed to call me back with the results and never did, I tried to get an appointment for my mom to find out what was going on. After several weeks with no treatment after her radiation and chemo and no appt, my mom had passed the morning of the appt I finally got

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
