I am a board certified medical ophthalmologist who has been practicing for eighteen years. My area of interest include routine eye exams, treating eye infections,dry eyes, glaucoma, diabetic eye retinal exams, contact lens exam and problems as a result of wearing them. I will see patients of all ages. My goal is to provide a excellent eye care and explain the treatment of your condition to you. I will spend the time to educate you about your eye condition. I am a member of the New York State Medical Society, The American Academy of Ophthalmology and The American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus. I will see patients of all ages.

Finally a doctor who has respect for your schedule. I was very pleased to be taken within 10 minutes of arriving. Extremely pleasant doctor who did a bunch of tests and said my eyes were in good shape - no needto worry about a condition I was concerned with. He was pleasant, efficient, and his office was not overcrowded. He ran on schedule, and his assistant at the front desk Paula - was very pleasant. Definitely happy I came here and will continue using Dr, Auerbach.

It was my first visit with Dr. Auerbach, and I was very impressed. He's a bit hyper, but very thorough and patient. He answered all my questions and even said I could call him if I forgot anything. Also, I felthe genuinely cared about getting the best outcome, rather than making a quick buck. I will recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr Auerbach was very thorough. He performs all the tests himself and he's with you from start to finish. He answered all my questions. He's a positive person with an abundance of energy and drive. The office is small but didn'tdetract from my experience. The receptionist was wonderful. She can multitask with a smile. Great personality and customer service oriented. I left with the all the information that I needed. Dr Auerbach can also proficiently multitask, I never felt like my appointment was being short changed. I enjoyed the visit. I would definitely recommend Dr Auerbach to friends, relatives and strangers.

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 outI 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!!
