Dr Austin completed my breast reconstruction after I had a mastectomy due to breast cancer. Through out my entire experience, Dr Austin was very kind, compassionate and always took the time to answer my questions and thoroughly explain my options. The results of the reconstruction were far more than what I could have hoped for and I am so pleased with the results. I cannot say enough good things about the care I received from Dr Austin and have highly recommended his services to friends and family.

I saw Dr. Austin after doing meticulous research and him being recommended by my primary care physician because I was having severe back, neck and shoulder issues caused by large breasts that were out of proportion to the rest of my body. I was impressed immediately by his demeanor. He started by introducing himself and walking me through a typical breast reduction procedure. I had a list of 52 questions and he answered all but 2 before he was done. He took his time and explained everything in detail, even drawing a diagram. He examined me and told me he did not foresee any issues getting insurance approval and he was right. I scheduled the surgery.In my pre-op appt, he asked me about anxiety and motion-sickness. I had a scheduled operation 2 years ago and the staff and doctor were not at all concerned about by comfort levels. Dr. Austin suggested that he see me and mark me first on the morning of the operation, then I could be given something for anxiety. He suggested a scopolamine patch before the surgery so that any nausea would be lessened. He took into account that I had been on opiate pain killers for some time and adjusted the prescription to make sure I would be comfortable post-op. He also wrote a prescription for suppositories for nausea - this is the first doctor that has taken vomitting into account when prescribing anti-nausea medications.The surgery went as planned. The pain was minimal, and nearly nonexistent with the rx. I did not have an issue with nausea following my operation. When the bandages and drainage tubes were removed, I was in awe of the results. My breasts are now perfectly proportionate to my body. I'm less than 3 weeks post-op and the scarring is already much less than I would have imagined. After my appt to have the drainage tubes removed, Dr. Austin scheduled an appt for the handling of any scarring/scar tissue. The fact that he not only has the compassion to see me more than required to ensure my healing process goes well, but advised it outright speaks volumes. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. My quality of life is already so much higher than it was.
