I have been to many doctors and physical therapist in my life time; Austin is the ONLY one I have ever recommended to a family member and a friend; several in fact. He is the only one I have and will ever recommend to anyone! This is not something I take lightly.
In June 2016 I sustained a massive knee injury; this injury has turned into a cluster of random, painful issues that have caused both Austin and I some headaches. Initially we thought I had badly sprained my right knee and we started treatment according to that idea; however after a couple months, when I was not getting better, Austin recommended I get an MRI. The MRI showed I had severed my ACL, partially torn my MCL and LCL, and nearly broken my Tibia. Through further investigation, it was decided that my right ankle had been sprained and there were some issues in my back, as well. Throughout this entire ordeal, Austin has been patient, caring and consistent. He has never once assumed he knew what was wrong, or how I felt, and he has never trivialized my pain. He listened intently to my complaints and has done everything possible to minimize my pain. He has never assumed he knew my pain or that he would cure me in one session. He has been honest with me about the whole process and diligent in his attempts to find every solution possible. Austin’s greatest asset is his incredible brain, along with his caring, willing nature. He is truly interested in targeting the source of the pain, not just treating the symptoms to get you out and move on to the next patient. He will work and search and study until he finds the cause and solution to your pain. He is relentless in his pursuit of your treatment and will not quit until you are pain-free.
When I first came to see Austin, I could not walk or stand up straight. I was in so much pain that I fainted (or nearly fainted) frequently. My right leg was partially paralyzed and I was unable to move my right foot at all. I could not sit up on my own and I was in a wheelchair. My pain was a constant 10 and there was no relief even with pain medications. I am a teacher and a mother, being in a wheelchair is not conducive to either field. As the beginning of my school year crept closer and closer, Austin fit me in to his schedule daily in order to get me functional and strong enough to survive a full day of work. I had to teach most of the first semester from a chair, but Austin got me strong enough to stay all day. As of now, I am able to ride a stationary bike, walk up my stairs and pick up my baby. When I met Austin I was not sure I would be able to do any of those things again. I know it is only a matter of time until I am back to running. I also know Austin will not quit until I am back to running and lifting weights.
If you have happened upon this page, or if you were sent here by someone who loves you, you are in the right place. There is no one out there who will work harder for you. Austin is smart, caring and compassionate. He will do everything he possibly can to correct the problem. You will leave him feeling better than you ever thought possible. Take it from me: this is where you belong if you want to heal completely and as quickly as possible. Stop searching and call him…it will be the best thing you ever did for yourself, or your family.
