Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Austin "I begin with a a thoughtful and complete evaluation, focusing first on what brings a person to my office, and then on understanding that person as a human being, including their past experiences.

I also enjoy meeting and working with family members."

Recommended drugs that nearly ruined my family member's life. An irresponsible pill-pusher.
