I was suffering from a painful and bloodshot eye. Urgent care could find nothing and sent me home with eye drops..My eye did not improve and several days later I called Dr. Austin's office. Two hours later Dr. Austin removed a hidden eyelash from the corner of my eye. The pain was instantly gone. I cannot overstate how appreciative I am of Dr. Austin's courteous and sympathetic and competent service. Thank you, Doug Rchmond

I always feel that he has time to listen and respond to me although he isn't part of a group practice. He's thorough, clear, as well as warm and compassionate. My one emergency experience was an immediate appointment. His staff is professional and caring. I trust them all.
