Worst patient service I have EVER experience at a Doctors office. Doctor was rude and horrible and if you'd asked him 5 minutes after I left why I had been in to see him I doubt he would have been able to tell you! He was totally disengaged! My favorite part of the whole experience is when I called to ask for the x-ray images that I had already paid for and was told I had to pay an additional $15.00 fee for the images. I only gave 1 star because I couldn't give none!

I would not recommend Dr. Kenneth Austin to anyone. He is obnoxious, rude, and has no interpersonal skills. The medical knowledge applied to me can be found anywhere and he has not shown himself to be an expert.
