The woman at the front desk was friendly and professional. Dr. Auerbach was thorough in his exam and had a great bedside manner.
The best around. Great bedside manner, knowledgable and unbelievably friendly. You'd be mistaken not to go here!
Dr. Auerbach was very friendly but also didn't waste any time.
Dr. Auerbach is extremely personable and made for a pleasant eye appointment. He was efficient with his time without seeming to rush the process or cut corners (or eliminate social cordiality), and would highly recommend.
This doctor is A+. AC in the office was wonderful, nice fresh water. His assistant was lovely. Now let's talk about his skills, not his wonderful office across from beautiful Central Park. I had serious pain for two days, turns out I had something stuck I had something bothering my eye for two days, like something was stuck inside, it hurt so bad!! The doctor took it out with ease, and checked for damage. He was 100% friendly, and I almost didn't want to leave. His office is clean his employees friendly, and his skills unmatched!! Please book with confidence!!
Personable and kind doctor
Robert was so nice and super helpful! His office seems a bit disorganized but the quality of the appointment was top notch overall.
Dr. Auerbach was great! Great bedside manner -- he took my concerns seriously and gave a thorough explanation of the tests he was doing and the problems he saw with my eyes. He was also very upfront about costs, which was helpful.
As with my first appointment, Dr. Auerbach had a wonderful disposition, was highly professional, and was more than welcome to offer suggestions on everything from contact solution to films. He's one of my favorite doctors across all specialties!!
Dr. Robert Auerbach was awesome. I took my 12 year old autistic son and he was very charming, patient, and kid friendly. He's not a specialist for children with special need but he definitely made the transition smooth.
Thorough, attentive and very focused on me - the patient. Family agrees!
Great experience! Super friendly and funny! Very helpful, patient, and informative! Highly recommend!
Very professional and friendly
I'm felt very welcomed and accommodated. I was greeted with warmth by Paula. I find Dr. Auerbach to be personable, caring, and genuine. I felt taken care of and would definitely recommend him to everyone.
Nice, cheerful doctor. Explained everything very well.
Very thorough and answered all my questions.
My wait time was 45 seconds! And the doctor was great. Thanks dr Auerbach!
Very personable and responsive to questions. I went early so my wait may not be reflective of a more busy time
Dr. Auerbach is great . He is friendly, attentive, knowledgeable answers all your questions with easy to understand answers. I have been to Dr. Auerbach on two different times and have been thoroughly satisfied after both visits.
High energy, friendly doctor. Rec'd.
Always very kind and takes a personal interest in patients. Courteous and professional- Dr. Auerbach takes time to explain not only the conditions but also the costs of any potential procedures and treatments.
The overall visit was great - From the friendly service by the receptionist to the bedside manner and thorough examination by Dr. Auerbach.
Very great doctor...both professionally and personally! Very thorough and caring. Explains everything happily and truly looking out or what's best for you.
Our visit with Dr. Auerbach was great from beginning to end. The receptionist was super pleasant, the office was comfortable and Doctor Auerbach was amazing. He was very friendly, great communication (in Spanish) and a very thorough examination. Highly recommended.
I wish he was a GP and not just a eye specialist as I would move over to his practice immediately. Kind hearted, funny, genuinely cares for his patients. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an eye dr. I get nervous with dr's and yet felt completely at ease with the Dr. Good to find dr's you trust!!
Dr. Auerbach is very personable and thoughtful. He was professional and extremely thorough and considerate. I am happy to have found him. Also, his assistant, Paula, is very friendly, courteous and helpful.
Knowledgeable and personable doctor.
He has a pleasant attitude, very informative and attentive.
Very friendly guy who takes the time to listen to you and give you whatever help you need!
I have seen Dr. Auerbach couple of years ago as an emergency patient from Zocdoc website. He was amazing. I needed to see him again for different reason this time, and again, he exceeded my expectations. Being a doctor myself, I know, how hard to impress another healthcare professional, but he did it. I highly recommend him to anyone, who is looking for quality care
Great Doctor. Fast and efficient but comprehensive. Solved my issue right away. Highly recommend.
Perfect visit! He was able to see me right away, and addressed all of my concerns thoroughly, and took the time to calmly explain to me what the issue was.
Very personable doctor. Explained every test/procedure that he performed. Highly recommended!
Incredibly nice, makes you feel very comfortable. Takes the time to explain all of the possibilities and options. He even took time to send me a list of recommended specialists to refer to. Fantastic experience all around!
The doctor was very down to earth and was easy to talk to. He listened to everything I had to say before giving any answers which is rare these days. I appreciated how quick everything was. At no point did I feel rushed. Great doctor!!
He was a pleasure to deal with and he addressed all my concerns.
One of the most amazing Doctor's I've ever met. Kind, caring and smart! Called me back after hours when I had a question and great follow up. So rare these days. I wish I could find a primary care doctor like him.
Love Dr. Auerbach. His receptionist is kind, courteous, and helpful, and the doctor is super warm and friendly! I've been back a few times now... I wouldn't go to anyone else!
Very welcoming office and friendly doctor. Only saw for a simple annual vision check-up, but would definitely recommend him to others. He was helpful and answered all of my questions.
Very knowledgeable and personable, helpful in terms of finding information on low-cost glasses.
I strongly recommend Dr. Robert!
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.
Excellent doctor. Well informed, friendly and professional. Took the time to explain everything and answer questions.
Great visit! He took the time to listen to me. He was open to other options and I really liked him. Would go back without a doubt
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.
My wait time was very short. The environment was professional. Dr. Auerbach was very efficient and answered all of my questions;besides being friendly. I expect him to be my regular eye doctor.
An excellent first visit I was nervous but that soon left
Friendly professional with great office staff. Took his time and was thorough
Wonderful doc. Truly. Easy. Thorough. Candid.
friendly and welcoming - explained everything clearly, will return for my next eye exam
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.
One of the best first time Doctor experiences I've ever had!
Everybody loves Dr. Auerbach. He is incredibly kind and caring. And he strives to provide the best quality eye care. You can tell.
Very pleasant experience , he is very detail oriented
Friendly, casual. Receptionist not there so wife greeted me.
Dr. Auerbach and his staff are phenomenal!
Great appt. Dr. Was funny and really puts you at ease. Plus he's super knowledgable and does a great job of explaining things.
Very satisfied with Dr. Auerbach! I definitely recommend.
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.
Caring and professional doctor, explained everything very well. Office staff very helpful with insurance.
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.
Anyone looking for a fantastic eye doctor should see Dr. Auerbach. Not only is he knowledgeable, he is accommodating, and put you at ease. I was misdiagnosed by another doctor and Dr. Auerbach fit me at the last minute, and he found the problem immediately. I highly recommend him!
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.
Great experience with Dr. Auerbach. He's extremely professional, personable and very thorough. I would highly recommend him and will definitely return next year for my annual appointment.
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.
Dr. Auerbach is great. I feel like I am getting good eye care and help in fitting my contacts.
Dr. Auberbach lived up to his reviews. He combines professionalism with a personal approach.
Very pleasant and funny. Seemed to understand my medical concerns with my eyes. Front lady at desk was a doll. Had a very positive experience.
Fantastic visit with Dr. Auerbach. I thought I'd have an insurance issue, but he and his office manager did everything to make sure I could be seen that day which I really appreciated. The atmosphere is friendly and warm, and Dr. Auerbach has great bedside manner. His exam was thorough yet quick, he was informative and honest, and is all in all a lovely human. Very happy with my first visit and glad to have found such a great practice.
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 .
Both the doctor and the receptionist were patient and friendly. Dr. Auerbach was also incredibly transparent about pricing and available options, which I very much appreciated.
Very friendly. Very professional. Dr. Auerbach is my new forever ophthalmologist. His receptionist was very attentive and thorough. I highly recommend Dr. Auerbach.
Dr. Auerbach was very friendly. Appt. started right on time. He explained everything he was doing and asked good questions. Highly recommended.
Had a great experience, my 12 year old was completely comfortable throughout his exam. The doctor and the receptionist were both extremely friendly.
It was great
Extremely happy, highly recommend.
I finally found an excellent Opthalmologist, my visit was painless, fun/not boring and quick. I scheduled it around my lunch break from work & was in & out with 101% satisfied, Dr. Auerbach takes time to answer any concerns you have about caring for your eyes. I will definitely be back next year. :)
Dr. Auerbach provided a warm and professional service. He explained every step of the examination with care, I was promptly seen by the doctor and his front desk person was very helpful as well.
The doctor was very nice and very professional. More importantly he is very thorough. He took the time to explain each test and made sure I understood how and why they were important as well as what the results meant, in layman's terms.
My first visit and I will now be a regular patient. Very informative, patient, and personable.
An inspiration--a kind, unpretentious, friendly, helpful, compassionate, professional practitioner. Ditto his one woman support staff--she is also exceptional--- cheery, efficient, friendly, Even her handwriting is beautiful. On a ten scale, they are a thirteen plus! If there is a Top Doc contest, I nominate this team.
Upon arrival you will be greeted warmly by lovely receptionist. Dr.Auerbach is super professional, knowledgable and kind. He examined my eyes thoroughly and with great care. He also explained on the way of the exam, what are most common eye discomforts and how to treat it. All in all I found them terrific at their job. I hope Dr.Auerbach will be our family oftalmologist.
I left the office very pleased and satisfied. The doctor was very attentive. The office atmosphere is pleasant. The office is clean. I will try to have my early check-up with this doctor.
Im beyond pleasant with mt visit today!
It was a pleasure seeing Dr Auerbach, he's very friendly and professional. He listened to my problems/concerns, thoroughly checked my eyes and answered all 100 of my questions. He's a doctor I'll see again.
Very good, got the answers I needed in a short amount of time.
Such a nice Dr! Gave me lots of great information. Would happily recommend him to friends.
A very pleasant visit! I will be back. Dr Auberbach was very easy to talk to and I appreciated him explaining my symptoms to me at length.
I went to see Dr. Auerbach for the first time when I developed an irritation in one eye. He was able to diagnose and remedy the problem quickly and painlessly, while explaining clearly what he was doing at each step. I plan to continue to see Dr. Auerbach for my vision needs. Office staff was also friendly and helpful.
Doctor Auerback was very professional and efficient. The only surprise my insurance did not cover Eyeglass prescription , contact lenses prescription and the copay very high. In the end I paid double than it would have costed at a regular eye glass shop.
Dr. Auerbach was excellent, he took his time answered any questions and was patient.
Doc Auerbach is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. He's accommodating, empathetic, knowledgeable and very professional. He's very easy to talk to and give thorough examinations while explaining the details of what he's doing and why which alleviates concerns about all of that scary eye equipment! I would recommend Doc Auerbach to anyone looking to find an eye doctor in the city. As an aside his family often helps out at the desk and his regular secretary Paula is as sweet a person as I've ever met. All around good experience every time and I'm a repeat patient. Doc Auerbach has earned my trust and loyalty.
A pleasant visit. Doctor Auerbach is professional and humorous.
Very thorough and friendly. You can tell he lives what he does. Highly recommend!
Dr Auerbach was a very nice doctor and had great bedside manner but sometimes I did not feel confident in what he said.
This was my first visit and I was very impressed! Dr. Auerbach greeted me as I walked in the door and after I checked in with his friendly assistant, Paula, I got to see him right away. He was very thorough and even noticed that I was being prescribed a medication that might have adverse effects on my vision, so he suggested I research it a little more. I did and have since stopped that medication in favor of a different one with no side effects regarding vision. He also did a comprehensive eye exam and I was given a prescription for both glasses and contacts. I just contacted the office for some medical records and he called me back almost immediately and is having Paula send the records as soon as possible. Professional and personable. Would highly recommend! Thanks, Dr. Auerbach! And thanks, Paula!
Great eye doctor, very caring and patient
Excellent care and personable doctor!
I was so pleased to find out what continues to irritate my eye, and on the first visit to a new doctor, no less! I got drops that are clearing up the condition. Dr. Auerbach gave me a potential option to explore if this recurring situation gets worse or impedes my lifestyle. I appreciate that he did not try to push me towards another specialist, and was honest about it being my decision. I felt that had Dr. Auerbach felt strongly that I should investigate further, he would have told me as much. I've already recommended him to a colleague looking for a new ophthalmologist.
Very friendly and took time to answer all my questions.
Excellent Doctor. Kind caring and great with children.
Very personable Doctor with such a polite staff. Did a thorough exam on myself and my 9 year old. So glad we found this great Doctor!
He was great , very thorough and fun personality. I would recommend him to everyone :) and his receptionist is very friendly as well.
Dr. Auerbach was knowledgeable, personable and efficient.
Wait was 45m then Doctor rushed us through. He saw some spots in my wife's eye but didn't have the equipment to take a picture. He suggested we go to a different doctor that had that equipment. We'll be following his advice. Payment was also confusing. I paid for the visit even though had insurance, then when insurance pays the doctor I had to call to request my money back. They did apologize for not returning it before the call
He is knowledgeable, thorough and very kind. I would recommend him to anybody!.
I found my new doc! Thanks!
Very friendly doctor, the yearly eye exam was painless and very well executed. Very respectful and great conversationalist
Excellent doctor. Thorough, invested and knowledgeable.
Pretty good. Very laid back doctor.
Dr Auerbach is easily the best doctor I've seen in awhile. He was extremely thorough, thoughtful, caring and pretty funny! He seemed to really want to figure out exactly what was wrong with my eye. Once he figured it out, all of my symptoms made sense and I was much more at ease knowing how to handle my issue. I am extremely pleased with his work ethic and professionalism. I will certainly be seeing him again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Ok. Got all my quiestions answered. The visit was satisfactory. He is very patient & his secretary Paula does a very good job also. Very professional & kind
The entire experience was great. The office manager was professional and organized. Dr. A. was kind and thorough. We spent a lot of time talking about my options and he was concerned with being forthright about the cost of everything. This was much appreciated.
He was awesome. Fun, thorough, he really puts you at ease with his banter. Made the trip to the eye doctor fun!
I have been seeing Dr. Auerbach for years, and he is consistently welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. After a brief wait, I was in and out of the office in less than thirty minutes. He makes a visit to the doctor as pleasant as possible!
Very good doctor. And two thumbs up.
A real Human!!!
Very good doctor take his time with you.
Pleasant and very professional.
He was very friendly and provided excellent service. I would recommend him to others.
Dr. Auerbach was friendly, professional and thorough. I would see him again.
He seemed efficient and knowledgeable, and had a lovely bedside manner.
Great visit - quick yet comprehensive. I felt like Dr. Auerbach listened to my concerns and had me in and out of the office in an efficient manner without being rushed.
Dr. Auerbach loves what he does, and he makes you feel your eyes are in very capable and knowledgeable hands! He has an intense but humorous manner that puts you immediately at ease. His mind is razor-sharp. Office ambience was warm and welcoming, particularly due to Paula, his administrative assistant. She too is both sharp and extremely warm. Overall, an excellent eye examination experience.
Comfortable, convenient and the receptionist and doctor could not have been nicer. I appreciate their professionalism and friendly manner.
Very professional with a personable approach.
I think this guy is smart and covers every issue regarding your eyes. He addressed the issues I had, and offered information regarding things I hadn't thought to bring up! You will come out of the visit with a healthier plan going forward for your vision. And yes, other reviewers are right...the receptionist is very Zen and very helpful, and the office space is beautiful.
Dr. Auerbach was extremely nice, very accommodating, and took lots of time to explain everything thoroughly and answer all my questions. I would highly recommend him, as with others on here. He's great!
Dr. Auerbach and his office staff were highly knowledgeable, extremely personable, and able to put me at ease within minutes. As a physician, this was an outstanding experience. Highly recommended.
My first visit with Dr. Auerbach was terrific. He lived up to the great reviews I had read as I researched doctors. He has an easy going, friendly demeanor and makes his patients feel comfortable from the start. A far cry from my former doctor where I felt part of a conveyor belt of patients being churned out without much personal attention. I am a convert!
Awesome experience! Really nice doc! No waiting! Would recommend to anyone who's looking for a great doc!
It was GREAT! Dr. Auerbach was very thorough and polite. He answered all of my questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone The Best doctor I've had in a long time!!
My exam with Dr. Auerbach was the most pleasant experience I've ever had with a physician. Very knowledgeable and caring. Highly recommended!!
He is great, and ZocDoc works great.
He was fast, efficient and helpful.
This guy should teach other doctors. He's kind, warm, friendly but at the same time, he's smart and funny as well! I do not like going to doctors because they always seem checked out or overworked - but this guy is someone I would want as a friend! His assistant Paula is also a delight!
I am pleased to report that Dr. Auerbach is as phenomenal as so many have reported on this site. He is a great listener, engaging, efficient, empathic, and fun. This was my first ever vision examination and after such a great experience, I now realize I never should have waited this long. Also, the receptionist (I can't believe I forgot her name) has been with Dr. Auerbach for 20 years and she is just as wonderful. I highly recommend this practice!
quick, friendly, convenient. a pleasure.
Dr. Auerbach is such a kind, welcoming and knowledgable doctor. He really made me feel comfortable and in good hands.
I went to Dr. Auerbach based on glowing reviews, and I'm glad I did! I hadn't had my eyes checked in many years, so was a little nervous. But Dr. Auerbach put me at ease and I knew I was in good hands. He is very friendly and thorough. Paula at the front desk was very nice and helpful as well. Overall a great experience...and I'm even looking forward to going back next year!
Friendly but efficient. took time to chat, but kept working throughout my visit. He explained everything he was doing as he was doing it. I did not feel any anxiety at all. I felt well taken care of. Receptionist was nice as well. All in all, a great experience. Thanks Doctor Auerbach!
The doctor was very thorough with explaining and helping me understand my vision and gave solutions for treating my dry eyes.
Dr. Auerbach is always friendly, energized, and personable. You get the sense that he really cares to know you as an individual. Thoughtful guy!
Awesome doctor! He was great with my son and patiently answered all of my questions.
Most likely the best experience I've had at the eye doctor. Robert's enthusiasm and care was great. Also, what impressed me was how he versed the medical jargon in an easy to understand and professional manner. It gives you confidence that he knows what he is doing but doesn't make you feel distant. Overall, I recommend highly.
He was as people wrote about him here, friendly, concerned about the patient and very good at what he does.
Dr. Auerbach was very professional, knowledgeable, attentive, friendly, chatty (in a good way), and gave great service. I'm pleased with my experience and would highly recommend.
I was very happy with how helpful Dr Auerbach is. His follow-up is excellent and he has a very approachable way. I highly recommend him.
It was lovely.
Great doctor who was both efficient and thorough in explaining what my issue was and how to treat it.
My visit was great. Dr. Auerbach is very thorough, upbeat, and pleasant.
Professional and competent. Takes the time to explain things.
Dr. Auerbach is an excellent, highly skilled doctor who instills great confidence and makes patients feel very comfortable.
Great Doctor! Highly recommended!
He is an excellent doctor . He always answered everytime i asked him questions about whats going on with my eyes.
Great! Thanks again Doc! Best, JB
I have lived in New York City for over 17 years, and in that time I have likely been seen by six or more ophthalmologists. And then I found Robert Auerbach MD. Dr. Auerbach demonstrated an extremely high standard of excellence from my initial visit forward. He has been my ophthalmologist for approximately three years now. Dr. Auerbach detected narrow-angle glaucoma a couple of years ago and promptly referred me to the right specialist for laser surgery. No other ophthalmologist detected this before, and the fix couldn't have been easier. During today's appointment Dr. Auerbach confirmed a continued successful glaucoma correction. There are many other good comments I can add, but space limits. Briefly, Dr. Auerbach remembers and takes interest in aspects of my background that personalize my appointment. Dr. Auerbach is extremely knowledgeable and presents medical information in a manner that is easy to understand. It is easy to schedule with Dr. Auerbach, his office location is convenient and staff members (Paula) are extremely nice. I once reached Dr. Auerbach on his cell phone while he was on vacation with his family and he took my call without hesitation. Clearly, I highly recommend Robert Auerbach MD. I will be re-locating to the Southwest in a few weeks, but I intend schedule with Dr. Auerbach to coincide with future NYC return visits. That alone says a lot.
It's my daughter's first time to see a physician other than her pediatrician, so she was petrified. But Dr. Auerbach made her feel comfortable after a brief moment of fear. The doctor is very good with children. We'll definitely come back again if another situation arises. Thank you, Dr. Auerbach.
Great doctor and great person. You can tell right away he cares about his patients and loves what he does. Highly recommended and extremely accommodating.
Very knowledgeable and personable! He did a thorough exam to assess my problem.
Very likeable, professional and thorough!
Efficient, honest, helpful. I can't comment on cost as only pay a copay and didn't need to order any equipment or lenses.
Dr. Auerbach was very thorough and explained the purpose of all the procedures and tests very well. He is takes his time, is relaxed and has a great bedside manner .
Dr. Auerbach is very nice and very professional
Dr. Auerbach was pleasant, courteous and knowledgeable. I have without a doubt found my Ophthalmologist moving forward.
Great. Very competent. Sociable.
I am a physician myself, and have no prior relationship to Dr. Auerbach, so I can say objectively that he is a "doctor's doctor." Professional, compassionate, thorough. I recommend highly.
He was very personable and thorough. He spent as much time with me as was necessary and did not try to rush me out if the door. His receptionist was also very nice. I will definitely see him again.
Dr. Auerbach was extremely attentive. He was able to diagnose my problem, and rather than immediately begin treatment, he sent me to get a second opinion (what I had was pretty rare). He was able to recommend an excellent doctor to perform the procedure I needed. Everything worked out great! Office staff is also super sweet. Really can't say enough about how wonderful this doctor is.
Dr. Auerbach was very nice, professional and explained everything he was going to do before he did it. He also used light humor, which is nice after a full day of work. I would go see him again. The only issue I had was when filling out all the paper work for some reason it was "company policy" to write down all your credit card information in a designated space, even though I wanted to pay cash. I checked with the doctor and he said paying cash was fine, so I was able to omit that info. Otherwise, great experience at the office.
Really thorough! Explained each step of the exam, was friendly and cheerful at the end of the day (5:30 appointment). The receptionist was also very nice.
Dr. Auerbach was fantastic! Both he and his office staff were very welcoming. I have honestly never felt so comfortable with a doctor before. He took the time to listen and was very thorough with his exam. I would highly recommend him.
Very personable and good communication. He explained everything in layman's terms so that I could understand what I had and how to treat.
Great demeanor, listens, answers all questions. Very pleasant experience.
I think he's a honest and professional doctor. He was very nice and helpful; going the extra mile if necessary. Interested and focused in the patient. The waiting time(s) are too long; I think he should take a few less daily appointments.
Dr. Auerbach was great and everything was quicker, easier, and better than I anticipate going to see a doctor for the firs time.
Professional, efficient and very friendly
Excellent health care professional with an eye toward compassion, medical expertise and the patient's well-being. Dr. Auerbach was informative, insightful and inspiring. Thank you for living life with passion and purpose!
Very thorough and painless
Great doctor! Super friendly and efficient.
He has a warm friendly personality. He attended to my needs adequately.
good doctor but worse then a collection agency. after less then 1 month sends your bill to collection agency. calls morning noon and night even after you tell him you are waiting to hear back from ins co. Even calls after he submits bill to collection agency, also has his receptionist call. Charges extra for contacts... worse experience ever. we will never go back to that office again.
Dr. Auerbach fit me in as a new patient within hours of my phone call. Dr. Auerbach was very attentive (including calling back when I had questions) and was able to fit me in for all necessary follow up appointments. Would highly recommend.
He is amazing!
Friendly, swift, knowledgeable, professional, thorough. I was a new patient and he saw me the next day.
Had a really bad eye infection and didn't know what was going on. He took me under his wing, and reached out to everyone he knew right away. So thankful for him!!
Very friendly and polite. Not aloof like some doctors. Very efficient service.
Dr. Auerbach is very personable and his assistant Paula is polite and friendly. His exam was thorough and he explained as he went along. I highly recommend him.
Very good and professional
Excellent doctor! He was very nice and thorough. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Auerbach was great. He was really easy going and personable, and he made sure I was comfortable with the new prescription he was putting me in - which is really important when you're going to live with the lenses and that vision for at least a year.
Great experience!! Would highly recommend!
I had a great experience. Dr. Auerbach was so nice and very informative. His assistant was so nice also. Clean Office and very organized. I would definitely recommend him.
Lived up to my expectations. A good doctor and a lovely human being.
Dr. Auerbach is very friendly and professional. If you're looking for a good doctor, he is the one.
Great convesationalist! Really sweet secretary!
Great doctor, great service. Really nice receptionist.
Dr Auerbach was competent and quick at getting a foreign body lodged in my eye out. It was a great service!
Dr. Auerbach was very professional. Took his time to explain the issue with my eye. He was also very informative as well. He also scheduled an appointment with the New York Eye & Ear Infirmary for me as well as calling in a prescription for me. He was great. I highly recommend Dr. Auerbach.
The office was busy so it was not quite as timely as I would have liked but the appointment was otherwise good.
He's a very attentive and thorough doctor with great people skills
He was great! He explained everything in detail and took time to answer my questions.
He was great and very nice.
Dr. Auerbach was great! His office is clean, bright, and conveniently located and his receptionist very warm and pleasant. Dr. Auerbach was very friendly and thorough in his exam, explained everything well and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him!
He is excellent!
I thought he was very professional and kind. He knew what the problem was right away.
I was on time for my appointment. The preceding appointment was accepted late, which made me very late for my own appointments. The late appointment should have been bumped. The office appointment schedule was poorly manged to my detriment.
Dr. Auerbach was very professional and easy to talk to. He had a nice personality. There was one other person in the office when I arrived, and I was seen shortly after this person finished their appointment.
Always pleasant, professional and thorough.
Dr. Auerbach is exactly the kind of person you want as your ophthalmologist. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful at addressing my inquiries, and an all-around wonderful person to have a conversation with and learn about. Although I'm glad my vision is such that I won't need to go back until next year, part of me wishes I could go back earlier just to catch up with Robert (definitely an awesome guy!!)
Very friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend him.
He is a very competent and intelligent ophthalmologist. He explained everything very well and took the extra time to be thorough. I felt very comfortable with him.
Dr. Auerbach was AMAZING! He is by far the kindest doctor in the city. I have seen a billion ophthalmologists and all of them gave up on my yearn to try contact lenses since I have really sensitive eyes! Dr. Auerbach told me that he would find me the right contacts, even if we would have to try a million of them! He saw me for almost two hours to try to get the right contacts for me! He was so patient and just such a pleasure to be around!!! Even his receptionist Paula was a doll! If you are looking for an ophthalmologist who actually spends time with you and cares for you as a patient, then Dr. Auerbach is the doctor for you!!! He even showed me how to order the lenses online. Him and Paula are the best team in the world!! I've never enjoyed a doctor's visit so much.
Dr. Auerbach and his receptionist Paula were SO NICE!!! My babysitter cancelled at the last minute and I had to bring my very cranky toddler to my appointment. They were so accommodating and professional.
Dr. Auerbach is wonderful. He takes the time to explain everything--more than once if you don't understand. He puts you at ease and explains all options that you have.
Dr. Auerbach was wonderful. He was thorough and described everything in a comprehensive way. I'd definitely recommend him.
Very friendly and nice doctor. Thorough consultation. Didnt feel rushed.
He was very friendly and took lots of time to address my concerns, discuss possible treatment, and even screen for vision problems that were unrelated to my infection.
Felt totally confident in his ability. He took his time and explained everything in clear and understandable terms. I will definitely continue to use him as my orthamologist.
The visit with Dr Robert Auerbach was one of the best doctor visits I've had in years. Thank you very much doctor, I highly recommend.
I felt comfortable and very well taken care of. Dr Auerbach was profession and made my visit seem more like a friendly chat.
Very friendly, personable and professional. I recommend him to anyone wishing fast, efficient service.
I am a practicing dentist in NYC and I know how hard to please patients. Dr.Auerbach is absolute perfectionist, which took ample amount of time for proper exam, contacted my pharmacist regarding insurance covered medications and properly treated my emergency. Great experience. P.S. His staff is amazing as well
This was the best ophthalmologist visit ever. Dr. Auerbach was extremely knowledgeable, explained everything really well, and had a great personality! Definitely he will be my ophthalmologist for life.
He is very patient and explains things very well! A great doctor!
Dr. Auerbach was really first rate and efficient. We were seen right away and he made excellent recommendations for a new Rx for glasses. I would definitely go back!
Excellent doctor who takes the time and really cares.
Dr.Auerbach is a great doctor. He is very professional, down to earth and made me feel comfortable on my very first visit. I will definitely see him again for my next eye exam.
Very nice guy. Nice office location. Very busy so he must be good!
This is my second time seeing Dr. Auerbach. I have always appreciated his manner and his willingness to go the extra mile for me as far educating me about various options for my eye health care, insurance, and lenses. He is the consummate professional. I will definitely be returning next year!
I had a really great visit do Dr. Auerbach- he was professional, kind, helpful and did a complete exam in a timely manner. He answered all my questions and rather then charging me for a contact lens fitting without asking he talked it through with me/ let me know my insurance would not cover it prior to just billing me. Recommend him!
He's very personable, knowledgeable, and explains in detail any questions you may have.
Dr. Auerbach was very knowledgable and he made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely be going back and I will also recommend him to anyone who needs a good Ophthalmologist.
Very thorough, and great manner with patients. Explained to me exactly what he was doing and why each step of the way, and made sure to note what was and was not covered by my insurance. He mentioned some extra eye tests I had the option to take, but didn't push them on me.
He is great. He made going to the doctor feel like a walk in the park. He's friendly, knowledgeable, and full of background knowledge; he not only told me what was bothering my eye, but also the history of the condition and linguistics of it, which as a history teacher, I was all about.
Excellent! Very thorough and personable. Highly recommend.
Great doctor and nice atmosphere. Dr. Auerbach was very patient, well versed in the field and gave me thorough options. I never felt rushed and felt like I was with someone I could trust who knew what he was doing. Paula the office manager was efficient and very nice as well. ould definitely recommend.
Dr. Auerbach was incredible - was comprehensive in diagnosing my eye condition and prescribing the appropriate treatment. He was extremely friendly (as was his receptionist) -- a rare treat in NYC!
Dr Auerbach is kind and efficient. He tries really hard and is pretty friendly and fast.
This was my first visit with Doctor Auerback, and I can tell you he is very pleasant, a very characteristic person. He took the time to examine my eyes and in no moment I felt he was rushing, or providing vague information. He was very clear and explicit and informative of what type of glasses I needed for my situation.
He was very patient and kind. He took the time to explain and answer questions. A great doctor.
Awesome! He's very friendly and makes you feel comfortable right away!
Extremely thorough, kind, and attentive. Would most definitely recommend.

Dr. Auerbach's very thorough and professional. Highly recommended!
Dr. Auerbach was knowledgeable, professional, and funny, making sure to answer my questions and share with me information so I could gain a good understanding about my problem.
He is a caring and patient doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and addresses them effectively. He also has a nice sense of humor.
I've seen Dr. Auerbach before and always had very successful visits. This time, I was in and out in less than half an hour! I just needed my contact prescription renewed so he checked out my eyes and determined all was good in a thorough yet efficient way. He's great at chatting and making you feel at ease during your appointments, and definitely knows what he is doing.
He was warm and caring and professional.
Very prompt, excellent bedside manner, took the time to explain things clearly. Highly recommended.
Dr Auerbach did a great job - went for annual check up. He is very thorough and professional. Office is in really an apartment and you walk from one room to another for exams which is unique!
Dr Auerbach was SO HELPFUL! I had already been to a different opthamologist on the UWS who did not help me with my eye issue at all (he was just like "oh here's a steroid drop prescription"), but Dr. Auerbach was AMAZING. He was patient, clear when explaining everything to me, and even emailed me articles about my eye issue because he could see that I wanted to be able to learn more when at home.
I was impressed with his congeniality and honesty - e.g., I didn't have to have my eyes dilated if I preferred not to. No pressure. They also explained clearly what was paid for by my insurance and what was my obligation. The office receptionist was very nice. The office also reflected the diversity of the neighborhood.
The Dr is a very nice guy. Totally warm and welcoming. We chatted the entire time, but at no point did I feel that the conversation was distracting him from the exam. When he found something that he didn't feel comfortable moving forward with with the equipment in his NY office, he was very upfront about suggesting I go get checked by a specialist. Added bonus, the health insurance claim was submitted and processed with in 24 hours.
Dr. Rob as he preferred to be called was extremely professional, very thorough and comforting. Immediately made sure to address my concerns and discussed all options. Completely put me at ease, he is very honest and answered all my questions clearly. In addition to what would be most practical/realistic as opposed to other optho who may push for expensive alternatives.
My husband was treated by Dr. Auerbach for a corneal abrasion and we cannot be happier about finding such an exceptional ophthalmologist. Dr. Auerbach is extremely thorough and patiently answered all our questions, referred us to a corneal specialist for the following day, and even offered to come in on a Saturday if things were to get worse. Once we reached home, he phoned us to follow-up! After days of agonizing pain, my husband says his eye discomfort went from 10 (v. painful) to 1 (almost no pain) after Dr. Auerbach saw him and treated the corneal flap. We highly recommend this doctor.
Very friendly, knowledgable and fast!
He was professional, thorough and listened to me.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Auerbach to anyone who needs an opthamologist. He takes his time with his patients and answers any questions you may have. I am very satisfied with the care I was given. My husband will use him when it's time for his eye exam, as well. And his sec'y, Paula, is excellent as well.

Great service and clearly answered all of my questions.
Dr Auerbach is great! highly recommend his office!
Dr. Auerbach while still being very professional was also very easy to talk to. I took my 13 year old daughter to see him and he was great with her. One thing I also appreciated was that he asked that one of her parents be in the room during the examination since she is underage. I would definitely recommend Dr. Auerbach to anyone with a child.
He was awesome!
Professional, thorough, knowledgable and witty!

Excellent doctor. Explained what he was doing and why. Pleasant demeanor. Support staff seemed a bit inexperienced but were friendly. Would definitely go back.
Most pleasant medical experience. I am the kind of patient who is hard to deal with because I easily get nervous and afraid. Dr. Auerbach has a lot of patience and is good at sooth patient and encourage patient. In all the tests he did there were no pain at all~~~
Dr.Auerbach is very good. Its hard to find a doc that is very skilled and very polite. All docs should have his characteristic. Love him
My husband arrived at the scheduled time and filled out his papers. The waiting room was empty and the doctor took him in right away. My husband said the doctor was the best eye doc he ever went to and highly recommends him.
Dr. Auerbach is wonderfully pleasant, knowledgeable, and sensible as a clinician ... I am most happy to have become one of his patients under his attentive care.
Very nice. Very Professional. Very reassuring. I was a bit stressed out and didn't know Dr. Auerbach. I left his office more relaxed and in better humor.
Friendly, knowledgable and very helpful!!!
Very friendly and knowledgeable.

Couldn't ask for a better experience. Dr. Auerbach was kind, courteous, thorough, and professional. He always made sure I knew exactly what he was examining, and in the process, constantly reminded me that "You're doing great." Also a very personable and approachable doctor. Thank you, Dr. Auerbach, you have earned yourself a regular client!
He is very great with children, puts them right at ease and makes the visit fun for them.
My visit with Dr. Auerbach was great. He was very personable, professional, and thorough. I would definitely come back to see him again.
Dr. Auerbach was incredibly friendly and professional, going out of his way to make sure I understood everything we were talking about. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Auerbach is one of the better doctors I have encountered, and I would have no hesitation recommending him to my friends and family. If you are looking for an eye doctor, then I wouldn't look any further. He's great!
I can't rave enough about Dr. Auerbach! He was so accomodating and an absolute pleasure to meet. From insurance questions to prescriptions, I couldn't have had a better experience.
Dr. Auerbach clearly loves what he does, and it shows in the way that he treats his patients.

Dr. Auerbach was great all around! I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
This is how doctors should treat their patients. It was my first visit and I've never met a doctor who paid attention to me like Dr Auerbach.
Dr. Auerbach was patient and kind, and answered any questions. I feel confident about his professional skills and know I am in good hands.
Fairly disappointing experience. Visit was rushed and doctor dismissed my questions by stating he didn't have any "definitive" answers when what I wanted was merely his own professional opinion. Also made it very clear questions were not welcome by saying he didn't have a lot of time for questions since he had other patients at this time. Left office unsure of my diagnosis, treatment and possible side effects. Obviously won't be going back again.
Dr. Auerbach was highly professional, very thorough in my exam, and diagnosed what would have otherwise been an unnoticed condition. Thank you so much Dr. Auerbach.
excellent bedside manner
Very friendly and efficient
Great experience seeing Dr Auerbach -- he listened to my concerns, walked me through exactly what he was doing during the exam and took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered. I'll definitely be returning to see him!
Dr. Auerbach was great and I already recommended him to my boyfriend. He's very friendly, personable, and thorough. I went in for a new contact lens and glasses prescription and he was very good about making sure that we got everything just right. Lastly, Dr. Auerbach also makes sure all of the instruments are quite clean before you use them, which is good!
I found Dr. Auerbach excels at what he does. He made sure I understood everything that was going on, worked patiently with me in order to get my prescription right and encouraged me to ask questions. He seemed very kind and well mannered. Along with his secretary, he gave his best effort to clear up some mix up with my insurance while making me feel like a real patient instead of a check. I will definitely be going back!
Great doctor. Thorough and professional
Dr. Auerbach is very friendly and he got me the correct prescription after another doctor had insisted on giving my a contact prescription that was incorrect. I was seen immediately and he was thorough with his examination. He even had my new prescription of contacts in his office that I was able to wear home. I'm a teacher and my insurance doesn't cover contacts, so he offered to help me get a discount on my new prescription. I was thrilled with the appointment and Dr. Auerbach clearly takes pride and joy in his work.
Tremendous Doctor. One of the best in Manhattan. If have an eye problem and want the best care in the tri-state area, come to Dr. Auerbach.
Lovely, very nice, caring, and thorough.
I came in and saw Dr. Auerbach, right away. I was a bit nervous, but he was very informative in explaining every prcedure. He was also fair, in that my insurance did not cover a procedure and he did it for free to ease me.
Very pleasant and an excellent outcome.
Dr. Auerbach was very thorough, explaining procedures and results in a way that was easily understood. The office was very nice and it was a very personal experience.
