Michael Austin, MD, is a pediatrician at UT Health East Texas Physicians on Fifth Street in Tyler. He believes you must be a counselor, advocate and listener in order to be a successful pediatrician.

"Much of what we do in pediatrics is not really related to acute health issues. It's about forming relationships with families and answering patients' deeper questions," he said. "Many times, patients will bring in a child with a cold, but what they're really concerned about are bigger problems with sleep, behavior, etc. As a pediatrician, my philosophy is to meet the needs of both the child and the parents."

Education: 

Pediatric Residency: The Children’s Hospital, Denver, Colo.

Doctor of Medicine: The University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio

Bachelor of Science: Westmont College, Santa Barbara, Calif.

Dr. Austin listens to our concerns and he is very thorough with his examinations. His nurses are friendly and efficient, and our family trusts them wholeheartedly. They're down to earth, they don't sugar-coat responses, and what we see is what we get! Quite refreshing.
