in Clive, IA |
Dr. Rauen has performed surgery on both of my eyes due to Fuch's Dystrophy. Not only is he an extremely capable and talented surgeon, he is also very professional and a gentleman. He takes the time to be sure that I understand what is happening with my eyes and what he intends to do to help my vision. I always feel that Dr. Rauen truly cares about me as a person as well as a patient. I have already recommended Dr. Rauen and his staff to friends and family. I am extremely confident in his ability
