Dr. Austin Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Austin Jr "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."

Patient Comments (4)

I am thankful for Dr. Austin and his office staff. He has the sweetest front desk lady and she is always is responsive. Dr Austin's nurses are a blessing and always so kind to me. Dr. Austin always talks to me as long as I need. He doesn't push drugs and always tries to understand the problem...more

Not sure if he is part of the problem... however front office person is horrible. Needs more training on how to deal with people. An illness could have been helped a week ago if the patient was brought in like another Doctor advised.

Your appt was cancelled because of the storm. The office was closed as were most of the offices that day. You called to get a refill on a medication that requires me to see you. You called the office numerous times that day, and then told my receptionist that you were just going to come in. Because of the storm the schedule was booked. My office works by appoinments. No one lied to you nor were they rude. You were rude asking for your f...ing records.

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...more

By looking at your grading you were extremely biased. If you ask any of my patients, the one thing I do is spend time with them and explain what is going on. It might be a wait because I do spend time with my patients. You must not have been seen because your only legitimate complaint was the wait. In othe5r offices you may be seen quickly, but you leave quickly, and most of the time you don't even see the doctor. Good luck to you.
