      Ive been a patient of Dr. Austin for about 10 years. Originally started seeing him in Southampton when I was a teenager for my acne concerns, but now just go once every year or two for my annual check up and skin cancer screening. I used to be in his office very regularly as a teenager. I now see Dr. Austin at his new york city location.. Cane + Austin Medi Spa on the Upper East Side.

      Found Dr. Austin through his skincare brand, Cane + Austin. Just moved to NY from Albany, and needed to get my acne in check. Ive been suffering from acne since i was a teenager and have been on every medication on the planet. Dr. Austin advised me about my previous treatment plan, and what to do in the future.

      I've been seeing Dr. Craig Austin since I was a little kid at his upstate location. He's a really nice guy and has always spent the time to educate me on how to take care of my skin. Recently visited his new location on the Upper East regarding a suspicious mole on my back that my girlfriend noticed a month ago. Dr. Austin performed a biopsy on the mole, and his medical assistant called me earlier today to follow up with a diagnosis. His new york city location is really beautiful---you would

      Dr Austin is great if you can actually accomplish the impossible and get an appointment with him. If you are unfortunately left seeing one of his P.As run for your life. Carolyn has no bedside manner and is a butcher. She has no skills, is unable to diagnose and will leave you carved up and scarred, even if you're young! My new dermatologist had stated upon seeing a chest scar that he never would have scraped that and scarred someone under 40. Go elsewhere please
