Dr. Austin consistently provides exceptional care. Because of the degree of difficulty with regard to my health requiring a multidisciplinary approach, he remains not only in contact with my other out-of-town specialists, he remains knowledgeable with regard to the rare neurological disorder i have. He is very caring and empathetic, while doing what is necessary to take the very best care of his patients. Will never change doctors--he\'s the best.
