Guthrie Patient: October 2019
Since Dr. Austin completed sucessful carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand in Januay, I have returned for the same surgery on my left hand. I was greatly pleased with my experience and recovery in January so would have not gone to any other provider for this one. I have already recommemded him to three other friends and will continue to do so.

great.
Guthrie Patient: October 2019
VERY POSITIVE. Dr. Austin took time to carefully explain condition and treatment possibles.
Guthrie Patient: October 2019
I appreciate that Dr. Austin gave me time to think if I had more questions and made sure he addressed all the concerns on the list I brought with me. I did NOT feel like he needed to rush off the the next appointment or make sure I fit only into my 15 minute slot. That is important to me.
