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.

Dr. Linnell was born in Tehran, Iran, but grew up in Austin, TX from age six on. When she’s not working, she can be found outside with her husband, toddler, and dogs. Or in the kitchen, since “I absolutely love to cook (but I’m a terrible baker!).” Dr. Linnell’s favorite outdoor spot is Zilker Park,where she spent many enjoyable hours at Barton Springs with her friends while growing up, and now loves the weekend train rides on the Zilker Zephyr with her son.
I chose a career in pediatrics because there has always been something really special to me about the hope and joy in children’s hearts. As a pediatrician, I get to see this every day, while making sure they are growing up to be healthy, happy adults. The most important part of caring for a patient is taking the knowledge I’ve gained in my training and tailoring that to the patient and their family. The best care is evidence based, individualized care that a family is comfortable with and truly understands.

A pediatric eye exam can detect abnormalities like amblyopia, when the brain fails to process inputs from both eyes and, over time, favors one eye over the other, leading to a lifelong deficit in binocular vision.
Preparing for your baby's arrival is an exciting time that can raise questions about the health care your child will receive. A free ARC Pediatric Meet & Greet is an excellent opportunity for you to learn about our practice and inquire about an individual doctors' philosophy of caring for infants, children, and teens.
When you have concerns about your child’s mental or behavioral health, your ARC pediatrician will help you determine the kind of help you need and will help you access the right resources for your child.
