My visit with Dr. Auerbach was very pleasant. He seems like a really nice person and great doctor. He saw me right away, listened to me and and explained everything very well. We exchanged some personal anecdotes, which made me feel very comfortable. The office looks a bit old-fashioned, but in this kind of charming, small town way. If I ever need to go to an eye doctor again, I will definitely return.

This was my second time seeing Dr. Auerbach within the year for the same condition, and I felt welcomed upon arrival and confident upon departure. He and his office assistant are professional and personable. My two visits have been comprehensive while being concise. Dr. Auerbach listened and responded when I said the medication last time was on the pricey side, and he prescribed a more cost-effective Rx this time around. I was also given instructions for preventing another occurrence.

Dr. Robert Auerbach is very professional and knows his job well. He recommended me to two different doctors for other issues which I have with my eyes. His diagnosis of my condition of the left eye was enlightening. Also, before my visit, I contacted him on two occasions regarding my insurance and another issue and very surprisingly, he responded to my calls very promptly unlike some doctors who never get back to you so that one's concerns can be addressed. Thanks Dr. Auerbach. S. V.

This was my second time seeing Dr. Auerbach for a general eye exam/checkup and contact lens fitting. Both times I was seen within 5 minutes of arrival. Dr. Auerbach is professional, explains what he's doing, and responsive to patient questions. Diana at the front desk is great - very personable, cheerful, and efficient. All pricing is transparent - a few services (refraction, contact lens exam) are rarely covered by insurance and they give you a form in advance with the fees associated with these services.

I have never met a doctor like Dr. Auerbach. Luckily I found him an appt on zoc doc when I needed an ophthamologist to assess my medical condition. He was not only personable, and made me feel at ease when I was feeling anxious about my situation, but he seemed to do a completely thorough examination that revealed some interesting and important information. He raised some excellent questions that could have had impact on my situation, and referred me to additional experts that would address his observations. I felt grateful for meeting this wonderful NYC doctor, that made me feel like there are still physicians out there that are not afraid to show they care about their patients. Thank you again.

I came in one late afternoon to a packed waiting room, and Dr. Auerbach did his best to juggle the various patients as best he could in a courteous manner. He apologized for the shuffle, explaining how he had several unexpected emergencies that day. Despite being busy, he took the time to explain what he was doing and the effects of the various drops he gave me. He also thoroughly answered my questions about my diagnosis.

Dr. Auerbach isn't one of those doctors who lets the PAs handle all the work and then quickly greets you to write a prescription. He is with you from start to finish, gets to know you, and hosts you in his office as a welcoming host would in their home. He was great, reliable, and actually made my appointment fun! He even personally helped me shop around for the best price on my contact lenses on his computer when I inquired about price. Attentive, caring, and knows how to go above and beyond when it comes to "customer" service.

Absolutely personable, empathetic and kind. Excellent bedside manner. Dr. Auerbach knows what he is doing. His secratory and I believe also an office manager is super kind and helpful. That is what you want when you go to a physician. You like to be treated like a person not only a source to make money. Dr. Auerbach and his staff are an example of this and he deserves every single penny and wealth he makes from his profession. I highly recommend him .
