Ratings for Dr. Paul W. John
I've been seeing Dr. John since I moved to Austin in '98. He's always been empathetic and made the correct diagnosis. He has always been quick to refer me to specialists when he felt it was out of his area of expertise. The specialists he has referred have been excellent, as well. Dr. John and his staff make me feel like family.
The NP in Dr. John's practice is great, but the rest of the office and clinical staff were always a bit cold (even though I was, for a time, going in monthly for follow-up visits). My biggest concern with this physician is his choice not to refer out to a specialist when a case exceeded his expertise (in my case, breathing problems during pregnancy - as Dr. John had been prescribing meds for my asthma pre-pregnancy, my OB requested that I see him for follow-up when my breathing problems worsened while pregnant). After I gave birth to my preemie son, I did consult with a specialist about my health care concerns, and the specialist was visibly frustrated that I had not been referred sooner (citing that unmanaged breathing problems are one of the biggest contributing factors to prematurity and low-birth weight).
