Dr. Austin let my finger heal crooked after my finger fractures. I asked to be seen by a hand specialist when I called but ended up scheduled with Dr. Austin, the hip specialist. I was informed that I wouldn't be seen that day if I wanted to wait for the hand specialist. Since my fingers were broken, I decided to see Austin. I told him my finger looked crooked to me. He told me "everything lined up". A month later cast comes off, he chuckles when he tells me I'm crooked. Now its permanent

The fact that this office is the only show in town is pathetic. The office staff is unprofessional and rude. Too busy texting about schedules and allowing the whole waiting room know about it. Dr. Austin is insensitive to his patients need. Brought my 12 year old for back pain from paying at school. Without any hesitation Dr. Austin says he has Scoliosis take him to a surgeon he'll know what to do and walked out!!!? The whole practice should be shut down.

I wish i had read the reviews for Doctor Austin prior to having him treat me. i agree with the previous reviews that accurately indicate he is arrogant and an as*hole. He appears to be actually annoyed that he has to treat a patient. I had an MRI done which did disclose a problem with my spine and he did not explain what the MRI disclosed. I changed to another Doctor in the same network and i am completely satisfied. The new Dr explained in detail the results of the MRI and recommended treatment

This doctor was an idiot.had no kind of patient relationship.he was unable to diagnosis an injury and explain nicely how to treat injury. He was very unprofessional. Would never see him or recommend him at all.

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.
