Dr. Austin has been my physician for close to 20 years. I can\'t imagine a more caring, professional, organized, and thorough provider than Dr. Austin. I, myself, have worked with physicians in my professional life (hospice). Even with that comparison, Dr. Austin stands out (uniquely so) as exceptional. Finally, I often send friends to Dr. Austin who also have the same compliments regarding his care. I have never heard a single negative comment. Honestly, I\'m surprised there isn\'t a line out the door to see him every day.
