I cannot recommend Dr. John Austin enough. Simply put, he gave me the best experience I have ever gotten from a medical professional, by far. While there was so much more to my experience, his office checked EVERY box on the "What you want out of a doctor" list. Dr. Austin was warm, knowledgeable, good at explaining, didn't rush to conclusions, and genuinely cared about me and my case. Geine, was so sweet and an overall pleasure to work with. Scheduling can be a challenge with my line of work and they were very accommodating. Everyone that I interacted with on the journey spoke very highly of Dr. Austin and assured me I was in great hands. The surgery went great and he followed up with me to make sure I was feeling alright. I'm sure there are a lot of great orthopedic surgeons in the San Diego area, but if you want to be completely confident that you are working with a Doctor that truly cares, I'd go with Dr. Austin.
