Patients, help us protect our high-risk patients - please wear a mask if you have respiratory symptoms, a positive COVID-19 test, or COVID-19 exposure.
Effective 3/13/23, ARC transitions to optional masking for our staff and physicians, with required masking during specific situations. Read more.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government declared a public health emergency (PHE) and passed a law that allowed you to automatically keep your Medicaid coverage (continuous Medicaid). Based on the new federal law, continuous Medicaid eligibility will end on March 31, 2023, so you need to renew your benefits when it’s time to ensure your coverage will continue if you are eligible.
Patients should look for notices from HHSC in YELLOW envelopes that say "ACTION REQUIRED" in RED lettering. Notices will come in the mail and/or via portal if clients chose electronic notices. They should respond quickly when they receive it.
If you don’t respond to renewal or information requests from HHS, you could lose your coverage.
Como respuesta a la pandemia de COVID-19, el gobierno federal declaró una Emergencia de Salud Pública (PHE, por sus siglas en inglés) y aprobó una ley que le permitió a usted mantener automáticamente su cobertura de Medicaid (cobertura continua de Medicaid). Según la nueva ley federal, la elegibilidad para la cobertura continua de Medicaid se terminará el 31 de marzo, de 2023, por eso necesita renovar sus beneficios cuando se llegue el momento para asegurar que su cobertura va a continuar si usted todavía es elegible.
Pacientes deben buscar avisos de la HHSC en sobres AMARILLOS con el texto “ACCIÓN REQUERIDA” en letras ROJAS. Los avisos llegarán por correo y/o a través del portal en línea si los clientes eligieron recibir avisos electrónicos. Deberían responder con rapidez cuando lo reciban.
Si no responde a las solicitudes de renovación o de información de la HHSC, podría perder su cobertura.
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 Binary Fountain to collect patient feedback about their doctor’s visit. We gather feedback from text surveys that are sent after the visit. Binary Fountain 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.

When I started my formal nutrition degree training I realized that there were many discrepancies between what was taught in school vs. what I read online, including nutrition misinformation on social media that might be causing people to have unhealthy relationships with food. I knew I had a calling to help people get the right information to improve their health. I take a highly individualized and holistic approach by making sure I understand job, priorities, stress, sleep habits, and food likes/dislikes before making recommendations. My goal is to help people feel more empowered by food and alsoto have fun with it – healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring!

Rating based on "Did the healthcare provider or doctor provide the care you expected?"
Very informative, just felt a little rushed towards the end.
ARC needs to be clear about the outcomes of the healthiness program before wasting in office time
I felt like doctor seemed to be rushing us to get us out. I felt like I had to probe to ask questions regarding my son dietary habits. She was helpful to say the least. But I felt rushed.
I felt that Kritikaa listened and heard what I was saying my particular problem was and she prescribed specific help that was aimed towards my own personal struggles with diet and eating.
Kritikaa is so kind and upbeat, and I believe she sincerely cares about my health. I find her advice helpful and encouraging.
I guess I didn’t know what to expect. I got like a little bit of new info but nothing that u felt would change my life.
