      Dr. Auran is an exceptional doctor and person. I had a very difficult corneal erosion issue -- one of the tougher problems to treat -- and his patience and expertise got me through. He is kind, patient, brilliant, and reassuring. His devotion to his patients is palpable, and he is wonderful at putting them at ease. When I'm ready for cataract surgery -- any day now -- Dr. Auran will be the one. A consummate professional and superb physician.

      The personality of a game show host. I needed cataract surgery and made the worst medical decision of my life to go with Auran. Without my knowledge, he had a RESIDENT PERFORM THE SURGERY. The eye has never been right. With his fancy education, he is sleazy. Messing with someone's eyesight is not a joke Dr. Auran.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
