      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Austin's Care Philosophy

      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. Many, though not all, of my patients receive medications, and almost all receive at least short-term psychotherapy and sometimes long-term psychotherapy. I also enjoy meeting and working with family members.
