    Holly, his nurse, is very rude and unprofessional. His office manager, Sharon, doesn't even know how to work his front desk. Very unpleasant experience!!! Would not recommend!!!!

    Dr. Austin's Care Philosophy

    Cardiovascular Disease kills more Americans than any other. The correct initial diagnosis and subsequent follow up are essential. Also essential is continuity of care. The importance of this is reflected in the fact that every patient sees me every visit, every time. All questions are answered. It is important to me that my patients understand what diagnosis I am treating and why it is being treated
