I was very thankful that the provider listened to my suggestions on the tests run such as flu test. I requested a flu test and even though she stated she hasn't seen flu for over a month now, she tested for it. Thankfully it was negative. That was awesome that she tested it when I requested for it.
*Dr. Austin is the best! She makes my family feel welcomed and treats us w/respect. She explains medical info in a way we can understand.
I have shared my recommendation of Dr Austin with friends and my son's specialists. I know his Occupational Therapist has passed her information on to a couple of her other clients. I also have a friend who is seriously contemplating switching pediatricians and drive over an hour to meet with Dr Austin about some concerns she has with her son.
The strep has been going around my household lately, so she has definitely provided me with a ton of info on the pros/cons and the do/don't on keeping it from spreading from my three children and myself.
*Dr. Austin is awesome.
