What People Say About Dr. Mitchell Austin, MD

I've seen many ENT's in my lifetime trying to figure out why I couldn't breathe. Dr. Austin was the ONLY ENT who found the issue and did so in my first few minutes in his office. He did the 3 surgeries I needed in less than 30 minutes and I was feeling better within days. He is knowledgeable, friendly, caring, and gentle. He explains the process and makes it his goal to get you better. I HIGHLY recommend him. My family of 5 sees him. He treats adults and children and does a fantastic job with both.

Needed a pediatric ENT for child's ear problem and was fortunate to find Dr. Austin working out of the new facility on Harden Blvd. Was able to get in to see him quickly. He was patient and thorough with answering all of mom's questions. I highly recommend him if you need an ENT for your child.
