Decatur, GA |
Dr. Austin takes his time and doesn't brush off your symptoms no matter how small they are. I highly recommend him. Great cardiologist.
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!!!!
