Dr. Auerbach's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Auerbach "I was drawn to medicine by my desire to treat disease and ease suffering. Even before becoming a doctor, I have always liked to help out my neighbors by shoveling snow for them or walking their dogs. Another factor which attracted me to medicine is that this is a verbal job and I really enjoy talking to my patients and getting to know them. "
