I received a bill one year after the service I received. I called Dr. Austin's office to get more information regarding the bill. My insurance changed since this was a year ago and the bill he sent showed my insurance covered 0, so I just wanted to find out why. I was talking to the front office and the doctor took the phone from her and started yelling at me that I need to pay my bill. I never once said I wasn't going to pay it. He wouldn't let me talk and kept interrupting me. All I wanted was an explanation as to why I received a bill a year later, I don't think that is too much to ask. I also wanted an explanation of benefits. I wasn't rude and I didn't threaten to not pay. If he sends a bill a whole year late, I think I have the right to call and question the bill. He has piss poor inter-personal skills. The medical care I received was adequate, but I wouldn't recommend him based on my latest interaction.

This doc is simply amazing. He made it his personal prerogative to make sure he knew exactly what was going on with my wrist. He went above and beyond to get my xrays same day and looked at them immediately. Very smart, very knowledgable. Best doctor experience I've ever had! Thanks again doc.

The best Orthopedic doctor in San Diego, he takes the time to listen to your problems, explains the details of the injury and best of all he has the patients health and well being foremost in his treatment plan. For example, when I went to see him, he gave me various options and his suggestions cured my pain in my knee joint without any surgery. His staff is amazing (Jenny), very friendly, helpful and professional. The only thing I would improve is the wait time which lasted more than 30-45 minutes.

I had a fracture wrist three months ago. I was very lucky to be able to see Dr. Austin at the time I most needed. From the first appointment till my recovery, Dr. Austin cared attentively and kindly, he let me know the healing progresses and limitations, so exactly that I felt he may have a wrist fracture himself. The nurse Grime and receptionist Brianna were also very caring and friendly, every visit I felt I went to see three friends. My recovery was faster then expected, I truly appreciated that I have received exceptional cares in Dr. Autin’s Office!

I went to see Doc Austin for a second opinion for my knee. Honestly, he was one of the best doctors that I've seen in a long time, he actually took the time to explain me what was going on with my knee and gave me several options before jumping into surgery mode right away. I'm glad that I went to see him.

Dr. John Austin did my total hip replacement which included a fracture and avascular necrosis. His care was immediate, attentive and diligent unlike my experience with New England Orthopedic Surgeons. I only saw a PA(twice) at NEOS and these exams were never verified to me by a physician. I suffered from severe pain and distress for over three months as a result of their inattentive care. In my experience, Dr. Austin is an extremely competent surgeon and caring physician.
