Dr. Ralph Austin Jr, MD
I am a family physician who has practiced primary care for over 30 years. After spending the last seven years as a hospitalist, I decided to go back into practice because I want to help improve the delivery of health care to people. I became a physician to help people, not just make money. In my practice my patients and I are partners and share in the decisions made regarding their care. I intend to put carrying back into healthcare. My forte is a caring attitude, and the ability to listen. My background is in teaching, clinical outpatient medicine, and hospital medicine. I believe in educating patients about their medical problems, and emphasizing to them that their good health is mainly their responsibility. During my career I have been involved in community organizations, and have served on the Board of Directors of the Georgia Academy of Family Practice; chairman of the Family Medicine Department, Medical Executive Committee, the Medical Center of Central Georgia, and the Pharmacy and Therapeutics committee. I have served on the Georgia Board for the physician's workforce for 11 years and was the chairman for five years. During my teaching years I was name the Attending of the Year by the residents, five years in a row. I love jazz music and enjoy photography. I have 7 children, 16 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren and love every minute I spend with each of them. I am fortunate to have a loving, understanding, and supportive wife, who is the light of my life. I am blessed and grateful to have accumulated the knowledge and understanding that God has given me, nothing is more gratifying to me than helping people.

Figured to pass the time while sitting in this empty waiting room I would vent. 2nd and last time here. Both times its taken over an hour to get called back. What makes matters worst is there is only about 8 people who have signed in today,the last one was several hours ago. I think he's either not here or asleep. I've now been waiting an hour.
