Dr. Austin has lived in the Bay Area since 1996 when he began his Graduate Education at the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco. He
attended the University of Oregon. The coursework which would earn him a Bachelor of Science in Biology also fulfilled pre-med requirements and a minor in Spanish. While at the University of Oregon, Dr. Austin participated in Neuroscience Research contributing to a publication in the Journal of Developmental Biology. Research was also part of his Graduate Education, while studying melatonin administration in diabetic rats.
After earning his Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine with honors, his Post-graduate education took him to Los Angeles County/University of Southern California Medical Center for one year of residency in primary podiatric medicine. The next two years of residency brought Dr. Austin back to the Bay Area where he completed his Podiatric Surgical Residency Training at Kaiser Santa Clara. Several specific aspects of surgical podiatry became of special interest, including working with children to correct club foot deformity, diabetic foot care, and foot and ankle trauma.…
Dr. Austin and Betty the receptionist and 'do a lot' lady are simply the best! Nothing like a warm welcome from the front desk and then a thorough, lots of information doctor. What more can one ask for?! I highly recommend Dr. Austin - best podiatrist I have ever seen!

First time visiting a podiatrist for my mom. He was pretty good and identified the issue within no time.
I was greeted by a very warm welcome by his office assistant which made me feel at home. Dr. Austin has excellent bedside manner. He listened and treated me with professional courtesy . He spent time explaining in detail the problem I had with my foot which I think is very important to a patient. He gave me his honest opinion about my concerns, discussed the appropriate diagnostics and treatment modalities that I will go through. I left the office assured and at peace after the discussions we had. I would highly recommend him to any patient.
