I've been with Dr. Booton since 1996. He is kind and knows his work. Thank you as always!
Very friendly and helpful staff. I went for an annual physical. Dr. Booton conducted the entire physical and listened carefully to any concerns or comments.
Dr. Booton continues to impress me with his insight and guidance on my health.

Dr Booton took time with me to discuss my physical. He asked the right questions and was very thorough.
He's a wonderful & thorough physician!
I finally found "my" doctor.
Dr. Booton was very thorough. He listened carefully to my symptoms and gave thoughtful recommendations.
I have had to see many doctors unfortunately. I have seen specialist, surgeons, etc. I have been a skeptic of Primary Care DRs because of past experiences. However, Dr. Booton has been really helpful in listening to how I "say" I am feeling, not just looking at the tests and medical charts. I am on a better road to getting my life and health back because of him. Five starts isn't even enough. Thank you Dr. Booton.
Several of the nice folks in Dr. Booton's office went out of their way to help me out. As always, Dr. Booton was great - plenty of time for me.
A great Doctor! Went in to establish new Primary Care Physician and couldn't be more pleased!
DR. B was on vacation, but provided a back-up (Dr. Marroquin). She was excellent.
It was good. Nice place and professional staff. Wait time was long at around 45 minutes but there is only one of him.
Office was short-staffed and took about 10mins to greet me, even though I was the only patient waiting. Very friendly and helpful, and let me know what to expect. Took only a few minutes after paperwork was filled out to be called back. After waiting about 10mins in the waiting room, the doctor came in. Dr. Booten was very thorough, asked a lot of good questions, and created a comprehensive understanding of my symptoms and history. He addressed my concerns in ways I could clearly understand, and put together logical next steps in terms of diagnosing my issues step by step. He is actually interested in digging deeper into issues, instead of just throwing medication at the problem. I'm looking forward to working further with him to help solve some of these issues!
Doctor Booton was great. He listened to me and helped me to get the medication that I needed, and he also did a full new patient exam. He was compassionate and friendly and made me feel comfortable.
Before my visit, I read several other reviews that spoke about Booton's terrible bedside manner. I'm a pragmatic person, so I didn't pay this too much attention. It was obvious once I got there that his bedside manner was indeed terrible, but the real problem is that it all stemmed from him just not caring. He dismissed my questions and hardly looked me in the eye the entire time. I had some results from blood work I had done independently with my own money (because I'm interested in reaching my optimum health), and he rejected it out of hand, saying I had wasted my money. His goal was clearly just to make sure I wasn't about to die. He didn't care about anything to do with optimizing my health and preventing future problems. He was 25 minutes late to the appointment and clearly was rushing through it so he could be less late to the next one. I'm definitely not coming back.
Entire staff interaction was great. Dr. Booton was very personable.
I was happy with the overall service .
Dr. Booton is an excellent physician. Very thorough, wonderful bedside manner, and a physician who takes the time to listen to his patients. BW
Dr Booton is one of the nicest dr out there patient kind and caring. He even talks with you and addresses your concerns. He even makes actual phone calls hard to find dr like this who actually cares
he is a good doctor. I trust him. He gives excellent advice
Dr. Booton was very thorough. He listened to all of my concerns and addressed each issue with knowledge and professionalism. I'm really excited to have found a doctor I really like in Austin!
Dr. Booton was a nice enough man, but he didn't really talk to me much as a person... I felt like I was just another body in his charts to examine. I felt sad and disappointed after seeing him, because he obviously was a smart, respected physician, but he didn't have a warm bedside manner. Plus he made me change into a paper gown just so he could listen to my heart... I definitely didn't need to get undressed for that.
Doc was great, people at the office were great. But when you wait in a exam room for an hour after your appointment time.. it gets a little frustrating. I didnt feel like my time was valued whatsoever. What is the point of have appointments if they cant see you within an hour of scheduled?
Saw his backup dr as dr booton was on vacation. The staff and the dr were excellent. Only issue was the wait time, was running behind but worth the wait. The office is small which I liked, not a number but a person. Despite running late, dr took his time. Overall great and area of improvement is staying on time and ensuring the patient knows the time range of delay.
Visit went well. I had expected an annual physical based on the notice they sent that prompted my call for an appt but they didn't expect that, but it was okay anyway. They never seem totally organized. A,strong office manager would help their performance.
I liked that, even though there was a mix up, I was seen by the nurse who took detailed info to pass on to the doctor. That resulted in me not waiting and getting the scripts I needed in a timely fashion. Win win for everyone.
I have been with Dr. Booton for several years. Friendly staff, convenient location to work, easy parking, in Medical Building with my Allergist. Remembers what you have spoken about previously, does not rush to medicate.
It was great as it has been for the last 15 years.
Everyone in office so nice.
I'm not generally a big fan of doctors, but he was very friendly and actively listened.
I was very happy with everything. Thanks
Steve is always personal and personable and spends the time and effort to make sure you are comfortable and knowledgeable. What a delight!
He doesn't seem to care about his patients. He is not the friendliest of doctors either
His people-centeric interpersonal approach to treatment is to be greatly admired and appreciated
This is a top notch doctor and a super friendly staff. Really a welcoming and warming environment. Highly recommend.
Dr. Booton and his staff were top notch! They were very courteous and very mindful of my concerns. I had some tests run with blood work, and prescriptions filled; all went as smooth as physically possible. They made efforts to have me feeling comfortable right away and it was more than appreciated. This is not your type of office were everything is very dry, they know how to laugh if something is funny. I like being looked after by real people with the correct medical knowledge instead of overly serious physicians, with the same knowledge, that seem to talk down to their patients. It was the best of professionalism mixed with humanism. It was a perfect, and my personal favorite, visit to the doctor excluding the illness, concerns, and whatnot. They made it as painless as possible. You CANNOT go wrong with Dr. Booton and his staff.
Great visit he should he was really concern I really appreciate
In my eight years as a patient, Dr. Booton has always been professional, has always listened with understanding and has communicated clearly and with kindness. In my opinion, he is a competent, caring and dependable physician.
Dr. Booton has been my primary phycian for 14 years and I have never had a complaint regarding him or his pratice. I would recommend him for anyone seeking a primary phyician.
I like the personal and private feeling of attention I received today.It was a very therapeutic setting...
Office was very clean and professional looking. The team was nurturing and sincere and very helpful. I havent been to the doctor in a long time and was nervous and did not know what to expect. It was a great experience!
– Dr. Booton is quite friendly, and so was his receptionist. Overall a pleasant experience. However, I really didn't feel like my medical issues were attended to. I felt like Dr. Booton wasn't really listening (had to repeat several things that I had already said), and his answers were quite generic and unconvincing. Of course, I'm not a doctor – these were just my instinctual reactions to my visit. It's possible that it just wasn't a great personality match.
He is a real pro. I love his new office. When you call his office an actual PERSON answers the phone. What a great concept!!! Customer service works.
He was fantastic and attentive. The wait was a bit long, but it was the end of the day and seemed out of the ordinary for the office. I'm sure the wait was just a one-off situation, but the staff was very friendly and courteous.
Everything was great and the staff were awesome.
Dr. Booton has been my primary doctor for many years. He asks questions and listens to my thoughts. Dr. Booton creates a relaxed and confident environment to discuss medical situations. I always have confidence I have a good and proven path to wellness after seeing Dr. Booton.
The whole staff was wonderful.
Very clean and modern. No real complaints though this was only my first visit. I will be going back to him as my primary care physician.
Dr. Booton took time to answer my questions and explain the trade-offs of treatment options. He is a very knowledgeable doctor who cares about his patients.
Covered all of my issues and had suggestions for moving forward.
highly skilled staff, very professional and efficient, Dr. Booton really took his time for the anamnesis, very thorough
Very close parking right outside the office door.
He was very nice and listened to all of my concerns. He was very clear about the plan to get my stomach issues resolved and what the backup plans are should this one not work.
Dr. Booton is a great listener and truly cares about his patients' well being.
Great visit with Dr. Booton. He took his time with addressing my needs and I love that fact that his office is tech savy and provides electronic information
I have been seeing Dr Booton for years, and he is very professional, thorough and caring. I highly recommend him to those in need of a quality physician.
Very thorough. Always take time to explain things.
I felt as if he listened to me and responded in a caring way. He is exactly what I was looking for.
Promised to follow up on consultation as well as on coordinating the info from the various specialists that I've been seeing and he never did.
He's always great.
I was impressed with his expertise in recognizing a potential life threatening situation. After all was said and done, I am more functional than when I started and optimistic about a full recovery.. My visit with Dr. Booton accelerated my healing process.
As always, he's very attentive and professional
My initial visit with Dr Booton & his staff was very professional & of the highest level of care & concern.
Very thoughtful and took time to fully examine and diagnose my condition. Recommended.
Professional, Fast and thorough.
