Dr Austin is an amazing Doctor; on top of being kind, gentle and understanding, she is funny and has a great personality. I enjoy meeting with her during my appointments. She takes the time to listen and never makes me feel rushed. She seems to genuinely care about her patients and staff.

Dr Austin is likely one of the best, most thorough, pleasant providers I've had the good fortune to work with. I've been seeing her regularly for approximately 10 years and would highly recommend her.
