*Dr. Austin was a phenomenal of a provider. Such care and concern after moments of having just met. I felt heard and validated in a way, and with the skill, too few clinicians are able to maintain. Bravo!
Provider *Ashley Austin is very busy - has many patients, seems rushed, not able to cal back to discuss urgent medical needs, visits were rushed! I do not fault *Dr. Austin for any of this. It is because UW puts too much work on the providers and nurses. I have required 2 less visits if the first one wasn't so rushed. This has been similar to my experiences in the hospital - each provider and nurse have so much to to in such little time and seen burned out. However they still are respectful, kind, patient and intelligent. I hope those that appear so overworked don't leave UW Medicine or healthcare. UW has excellent infection control! Hand sani everywhere!
Dr. Austin is an outstanding doctor! She helped me understand the condition [...] and what care I needed for it. I left the office feeling well-informed and pleased that I had found a good doctor. (I have had problems [...] off and on over the course of my life, and now I finally know what to do to improve the condition [...])
Dr. Austin is amazing. Her Nurse is also hilarious and wonderful. Such a dynamic and impactful team. < 3
Ashley is always warm and friendly, and great at explaining things.
*Dr. Austin was/is awesome! [...] was my medical assistant and she totally rocks. The resident who evaluated me was also very nice.
Seriously, everyone was amazing. The receptionist was very friendly, the MA was thorough and friendly, the resident was thorough and professional and a great listener (repeated what I said back to me to make sure they understood), and the doctor made me feel comfortable and welcome. I've seen several sports med doctors in the past and I flipping hated it; I never felt like they took me seriously because my injury wasn't serious/painful enough and wasn't associated with current heavy use during a sport. I've had doctors explain my injury to me in the past, and I understood it, but Dr. Austin explained it in a way that related to my personal experience, and in a way that made me feel like she took me seriously. I would 100% recommend Dr. Austin and the clinic to my friends. I am very, very likely to come back if/when one of my other chronic pain issues crops up again.
Both Dr. Austin and Dr. [...] (Resident) were extremely attentive and friendly. Great experience!
no suggestions, Dr Austin and her assistance are great!! And I highly recommend the doctor.
Dr Austin and her assistant [...] were very nice and helpful during the visit. I always get great service here and I'm willing to drive from a long distance where I live just to have my appointments here.
