Specialties

Dr. Mitchell C Austin has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr Austin was drunk and belligerent during exam

This doctor was very rude he smelled like booze and was acting drunk during my exam after he couldn't answer Any questions I asked because he claimed he "had no idea why my ANA was high" he was drunk and I am stunned he is allowed to drink while performing exams. I am trying to get a refund from this exam as the doctor was terrible

Glad

I have had a great experience with Dr Mitchell. After calling 42 doctors, none would see me in less than 5 months! Dr Mitchell was the only that fit me in his schedule. He is the first doctor that remembers me and my condition. He carefully answers all my questions. His staff sends me emails, text messages, calls back and provide me with copies of all exams. Prices seem to be standard.

found the right dr.

I consulted with two other rheumatologists prior to Dr. Austin and did not like their one-size-fits-all treatment plan for my symptoms. Dr. Austin listened to my symptoms, openly offered his thoughts on what the causes could be, explained his diagnosis and treatment plan, and carefully monitored the results. Have experienced a tremendous amount of relief from the pain and stiffness associated with my condition and am generally feeling much better. His office staff is courteous and helpful processing my prescriptions and insurance claims.

Great Doc

He's always pleasant and kind. He listens to what I have to say and goes over my previous lab results with me. He offers advice and optional treatments to help my discomfort and fears. What he does works and I'm grateful for him.
