Came in this morning with what turned out to be an allergic reaction to penicillin. The staff was wonderful, very professional and efficient. I was out of there in one hour feeling much better. Thank you!
Not enough words to express how kind and professional this group of people were. I was in so much pain but they managed to do what they needed to while calming and reassuring me. I wish I knew each of their names to thank them personally. From the woman at the desk, to the nurse and the man who took the xrays and even the gentleman who wheeled me out were all beyond kind and gentle and Dr. Singh was exceptional. All I can say is Thanks!
The doctor was very thorough, and all of the personnel were extremely friendly and helpful. There was no wait.
I was on crutches when I came in. My wait was less than 5 mins after I filled the paperwork. The staff was amazing and Dr. Singh was fantastic. As someone that avoids doctors, you will be pleasantly surprised here. No need to look around.
I have brought my boys here on a couple of occasions one being a fractured wrist. The whole staff was nice and very attentive as well as quick and efficient, no waiting in the ER lobby for 3-4 hours just to get vitals done and they even gave me a disc with my son’s x-ray on it. The place is very clean and has a modern touch to it that I haven’t seen at any other ER or Dr.’s office. I will definitely tell everyone about Austin Emergency Center!!!
Great attitude on check it, fast service. Would repeat!
If you have to go to an emergency room, make the trip here. I have unfortunately had to go, had been to the big Hospital emergency rooms before, It made a world of difference. I didn’t have to camp out for 6 hours, labs were immediate, a thorough explanation was given my lab reports were handed to me at the end of the visit, it was an absolutely great visit compared to all the other emergency rooms Ive ever had to misfortune to visit, go her if you have to go.
I was in and out of there in about an hour and fifteen minutes. The staff was fast and wasn’t wasting any time and they were all very nice.
I’ve been here twice and everyone is quick, courteous, and thorough. I’ve been seen right away both times and left after about an hour both times. They make me feel at ease here. I’d recommend it to anyone.
I’ve had to go twice in the last 2 years. Never waited more than a few minutes to get checked in and seen right away. Great facilities and care. The staff is very professional. I prefer urgent care centers to emergency rooms because the price is much better in my experience, I will continue to use this center.
The staff was caring and professional. They did a great job with my arm. The doctor called to follow up with me. He was patient in explaining things to me. Grateful they were there!
We were very happy with the service. Quick and Dr.s are Friendly.
Amazing, very professional, caring staff. Had blood work, cat scan done, and diagnosed all within 3 hours. Dr. Shaffer and his staff here are to be commended.
