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.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
dr. Austin is one of the best 'providers' I've ever experienced hands down. Guthrie Corning on the other hand is consistently terrible in the way they do business...my insurance costs should reflect service provided. it seems I have been overpaying for decades.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
I am very pleased with *Dr. Austin. His bedside manner is excellent.
Guthrie Patient: July 2018
He is the best.
