Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Very rude, the dr. opinion was it he wouldn't listen.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
I have recommended other persons to the Guthrie Orthopedic department.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
Dr. Austin helped me thru getting sick after my cortisone shots. He made sure I was alright before I was able to leave. Dr. Austin and Lisa are definitely a vital part of the guthrie family!
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr, Austin is one of the few Dr's I trust 100%. He is straight forward. Does not tell you what you want to hear. He is open, honest and co,passionate.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
good
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
very good experience
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
There was some misunderstanding between the Provider and me when discussing my condition. Possibly feeling rushed because of the back-up of patients, the Provider was not clear in asking me specific questions and misunderstood the answers I gave to the very general questions asked.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Would not hesitate. I didn't originally choose Dr Austin as my first interaction with him was in ER. However he has excellent reputation and his medical care has been outstanding.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
I am thoroughly pleased with Dr. Austin. I also like what a fine reputation he has when I talk with other people and friends.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
I felt as though Dr. Austin had decided that my weight was the only possible cause of my discomfort. And although I agree that losing weight would make me generally healthier, I don't feel as Dr. Austin was willing to look further into my issue. Just give me a cortisone shot even though it did not make a significant difference the last time.
