?They took me in as a new patient on a Monday afternoon, after I had experienced trauma at another eye practice. Dr. Austin was patient-oriented, thorough, listened, asked questions, and carefully examined me, explaining things and providing summary information. His Medical Assistants were personable and thorough, and office was pleasant and efficient. I am completely relieved to be in his care. He is an answer to prayers. by K.B.
