I also like that he's got a satellite office closer to my home, which makes it much easier, as I don't live in the city."

He'll validate actions I've tried and will suggest some new ones, 3. The staff at Austin Gastrointestinal is responsive. When I've needed a prescription filled while traveling, they got back to me within 30 minutes and the pharmacy I was close to had the prescription for within an hour. I'm really pleased with all concerned."
