Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) doctors, staff, and leadership are committed to providing our community with high quality convenient care. One of the ways we demonstrate this priority is through our online transparency.
You can review our provider ratings and comments on our web site with the confidence that they are all based on verified visits. We post all patient feedback relevant to the entire visit and only refrain from posting comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients.
The below guide provides details about how we collect and share our patient feedback.
ARC partnered with Press Ganey to collect patient feedback about their doctor’s visit. We gather feedback from text surveys that are sent after the visit. Press Ganey is an independent third party customer feedback company that provides the technology to collect the feedback and display ratings and comments on our web site. All ratings are submitted by actual patients and verified by ARC.
Patients for whom we have a mobile phone number receive a text survey within two hours of checking in for their visit. Patients are asked to complete the survey and provide ratings and comments regarding their experience at different touch points of their visit. We use this feedback to recognize doctors and staff, identify issues we can correct, and enhance our care.
ARC posts all positive and negative patient feedback that is relevant to the entire visit. We refrain from posting comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients.
ARC asks questions that touch on the overall patient experience related to their visit. Anyone seeking detailed information about each question can view the ratings for each specific question on the Reviews tab on the provider bio page on the website. We calculate our provider star ratings based on the responses to question number six below. We calculate our location star ratings based on the responses to all the below questions.
Since more recent data provides a more accurate picture, we require a minimum of 30 patient surveys per doctor in the last 12 months before we post a physician’s rating.
ARC physicians and staff review all comments and act to rectify issues. Since the purpose of the feedback is to allow us to improve the overall patient experience, we display the last 90 days of comments which are the most relevant for the practice.
No. Only patients having an outpatient visit by an ARC physician receive a survey. The results are based entirely from patients who have actually been treated by the physician in our clinics.
Comments are reviewed and approved prior to being published to the website. If a comment contains any personally identifiable information, that information will be removed from the comment.

I am committed to giving the patients of Central Texas a better class of Orthopedic care.

I try to accomplish this by building strong personal relationships with my patients and I always encourage a team approach to their recovery process.
The ACL is the ligament in the knee that controls rotation and forward movement of the tibia (shin bone), and is the most common ligament to be injured. ACL reconstruction is a surgical treatment to restore stability at the knee joint.
Fracture treatment to put the pieces of bone back in place, control the pain, give the bone time to heal, prevent complications, and restore normal use of the fractured area.

The rotator cuff is made up of muscles and tendons that hold the shoulder in place, that allows you to lift your arm and reach up. A rotator cuff tear involves 1 or more rotator cuff tendons becoming inflamed and torn from overuse, aging, a fall on an outstretched hand, or a collision.
Shoulder replacement surgery removes diseased or damaged bone in the shoulder and replaces it with an artificial joint.
ARC offers telemedicine visits for primary and specialty care. Doctors can quickly evaluate you for a new health issue or follow up with you via a phone call or video visit from the comfort of your home.

The wait to see the Dr. was very long. I waited close to an hour in the patient room and there was no mention of running late.
Great visit! Loved Dr. Padalecki!
My only issue was schedule integrity. I booked a 3:10 appointment and arrived 15 min early. Assistant escorted me to room about 3:45 and Doctor came in about 4:00. My procedure took less than 5 minutes.
Dont talk down to a person that is he’s injured, focus on what the concern is / medical needs. Anything else be professional( if it’s too much, pressure coming from the insurance to get him back to work when their is a underlying injure) Note recommend the person get a lawyer!
Dr. Padalecki & I discussed past appointments & decided to repeat the treatment. I told him exarcises i had been doing to relieve some of the pain. By the time I had had explained this, Dr Padalecki had numeed the area and enjected the steroid shot in both knees, put small bandagees to cover the shots. and I was ready to go. Very professional & efficent. Both my knees are pain free now. I'm getting ready to exercise now. Thanks!
Had a 9:40 appointment. Saw doctor at 10:15. No explanation. Just was unable to communicate my concerns.
