Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Austin "Medicine is fascinating because it is always changing, we are always learning more. That's why it's so important to always keep up with what is new. But even better are the patients that I meet and get to know - each person is different and many are so interesting. The nervous system is especially fascinating, The brain really is sort of like Star Trek (the final frontier) - it's so cool."
