Dr. Austin and the wonderful team at BACD changed my life. I have always had eczema, but it was manageable. During the pandemic, I had a severe flare that covered my whole body and was so painful. It would not go away, and persisted for over a year. My old treatments did not work. I went to see Dr. Austin who took action, made a plan, and supported me throughout the treatment. Within 6 weeks, my skin was clear and has stayed that way. I am pain free. Now, she is helping me look and feel my best. BACD puts patients first. They support you with medical expertise and true care. Highly recommend!
I have been going to BACD since 1997 the staff and care I receive has been consist top notch. I highly recommend Dr Austin - if you are looking for a leading edge practitioner in dermatology she is the doctor to go to! I’ve been seeing her for 3 years now, and at the onset we built a personalized plan that met my lifestyle, budget and goals. It consists of in office treatments and an at home regime that has delivered amazing results. A Big thanks to Dr Austin for your commitment to excellence and the high standard of care you bring to me and each of your patients.
If you’re ready to have the best skin and face of your life, Dr austin and her staff are the go-tos! Can’t say enough good things, bacd is life changing!
I have been seeing Dr. Austin for over 3 years now - and the compliments on my skin just keep increasing despite my age. She put me on a skincare routine that was medically grounded, personalized and quick to turn things around. And she addresses the whole person, from inside out, talking to me about the severe impact of stress on my skin. But what brings me to this review is that in the last year, I have been working with her on thickening my hair (another consequence of aging and stress - thinning hair!) and she has worked a miracle. I can’t tell you how much better I feel about myself thanks to the regiment she has me on (and one that is manageable for a busy person). Dr Austin and the team at BACD are worth every penny. You get the best in science with top doctors in their field, with safe and truly effective treatments. Yes, that doesn’t come cheap. But you only live life once!
Dr Austin and staff are amazing. She is super transparent about all the treatments and pricing. Highly recommend her
