Doctor Austin put our daughter on the road to a normal childhood.

September 26, 2017

Dr. Austin is a great doctor. She remembers so much of my son's medical history and can speak with us and help us with concerns outside of her specific field, working well with our other UPMC doctors. The doctor and staff have done a lot to not only make sure my son is happy and appropriate care is given but also give us encouragement that we are doing well with the guidance they have given us. The nurse did not make us do the weight and length again since it was our second appointment at the hospital that day and we already did it. That was nice.

August 16, 2017

Dr Austin was awesome. She understood all of our concerns and made a very clear care plan. We have had 2 other hospital visits, but Dr Austin explained the issue more clearly than anything else we had heard.

August 15, 2017

I'm just upset because we had to wait over an hour after we checked in.
