my cataract surgery could not have gone better. Dr. Auerbach and his staff are the best.

I went to Dr Auerback for what I thought may be either dry eye syndrome or an infection. I was not sure what was wrong and I was hoping he could help, especially after reading some of the reviews here. Unfortunately, he was not abIe to resolve my issue. Perhaps it was a bad day for him, but he seemed rushed and his bedside manners left a lot to be desired. When I tried to explain my problem and the history behind it, he kept cutting me off only wanting me to answer to his "yes or no" questions. He told me he was very big on "yes or no" questions. The problem with this is that most of his questions did not have simple "yes" or "no" answers. He did not write any prescriptions for my discomfort and told me to use over-the-counter tears. As my condition continued to feel worse I called his clinic back a days later and left a message asking if they could prescribe drops recommended by my pharmacist for eye irritation. His technician called me back saying he would not prescribe it because "he didn't think I needed it," His only suggestion was that I buy over the counter tears. My eyes continued to get worse and I ended up going to another clinic several days later. The doctor at the other clinic immediately put my on antibiotic and steroid drops... which brought the swelling down and provided much comfort.

I recently had laser assisted cataract surgery, along with multi-focal lens implants. Today I was evaluated at 20/20 and I could not be happier with the results. Dr. Auerbach is the consummate professional, along with having the personal touch, which gives one peace of mind about the procedure. Everyone at Central Florida Eye Physicians is top notch. What a quality team of professionals.

Doctor's Response

Thank you for the kind feedback and congratulations on your 20/20 vision!

Outstanding care and patient experience; a rare find in today's world. I have been beyond satisfied with my care and treatment.

I saw Dr. Auerbach for an emergency and was able to get in immediately. After the emergency situation healed, I scheduled contaract surgery and have had fantastic results. They also respond quickly to calls not during office hours. Highly recommend Eye Physicians of Central Florida.

Dr. Auerbach performed cataract surgery on my eye, and I had NO problems. I no longer need to use a contact lens in my distance eye, and felt that he & his staff checked & rechecked my eye so I could have optimal vision. I will definitely return when I'm ready to have my other eye done.

by Karen on Jun 16th, 2015

Dr. Auerbach made the correct diagnosis for the type of surgery for my cataract. I am very happy with the results.

This eye care physician office is more concerned about collecting payment before seeing the patient. Even when you have insurance they want their full payment from the patient and still bill the insurance.

Excellent physician and staff. Knowledgeable and courteous. made a potentially stressful situation easy to handle.

by Rose Marie Houser on Apr 13th, 2015

thank you for my new vision you are the best doctor ever Friendly, effecient and courteous staff. Felt right at ease throughout the entire experience. Amazing results!! Great job done by all!!

Apr 8th, 2015

Cataract Surgery on each eye with excellent outcome. Dr Auerbach let me know immediately that I would be wasting money to go through Laser and that blade would give me the best value. 20/20 for distance and over the counter reading glasses.

Went from legally blind to 20/20 vision, highly recommended!

by Sakina on Dec 12th, 2014

Dr. Auerbach is such a courteous and patient doctor. Any questions I may have, he always make sure they are answered and I have a complete understanding of the situation. I would highly recommend him to anyone with any concern about their eyes. Thank you for your professionalism, your patience, and your humble spirit Dr. Auerbach!

Wish to express my gratitude to Dr Auerbach for my "new sight"!! His expertise in cataract surgery has changed my life. There's no need for glasses for distance anymore....and I can deal with reading glasses half the strength I needed previouslyNo words can adequately express my thanks!!

by Dee A. Shields on May 23rd, 2014

Dr. Auerbach is the most friendly, caring, respectful and positive doctor I've ever encountered. From the first visit, he was so easy to enjoy being around, he eased all my concerns by both LISTENING, answering my questions simply and directly, he made me feel special, he was so proud of my progress and took no credit for himself. His staff are beyond fabulous -- they took the time to care about me -- a person -- they even made time to exchange photos of our puppies; they were delightful, I felt like I had a huge team of new friends. He's discharged me and asked to see me in a year -- I can't wait to get back to see them all. He's what most people hope their doctor would be. Thank you Dr. Auerbach --- you're terrific!!!

Dr. Auerbach preformed my Cataract surgery and used the Tecnis Intraocular Lenses. He did an amazing job and was so quick, efficient, and caring. I have a great respect for his abilities and love the outcome of my surgery!

I would highly recommend this doctor. He's wonderful. Very kind and truly cares about the patient. He exudes the confidence one would expect when you need your eyes operated on.

I don't need glasses anymore --- thanks to Dr. Auerbach and his Team. It was a great all around experience. VERY professional and caring. I'm not used to having a doctor and his staff care --- really care. Admittedly, I was afraid, but with how everyone works together in this office. You will learn they will help you with anything and fix it. This is a superior doctor!!!

It was a great experience, a lot easer than I thought. No pain, they were very informative and answered all of my questions. I would recommend Dr. Auerbach and Eye Physicians of Central Florida to any one in need of cataract surgery.

I have been seeing Dr. Auerbach for about 15 years or more. He is by far the BEST Eye Physician in this Central Florida Area. Besides the regular eye exams, Dr. Auerbach has successfully removed cataracts in both my eyes, and later performed a laser treatment that was needed. I know I am in Good Hands with Dr. Auerbach. He is so professional, so impeccably neat, and very kind. I would recommend him to anyone with confidence.

I think Dr Auerbach is good, detail oriented doctor who solve my eye problem mystery when 3 other doctors couldn't, however, the office he works in makes you feel like you are going to disney world rather than your eye doctor. I feel very much like a herd sheep. Approach a booth on entry, wait in massive waiting room for 20 or so min, have technician take you to initial eye exam, wait in exam room for doctor for 10 mins or so, see doctor for 5 mins hear him request several additional tests, get herded between test rooms for about an hour taking field of vision test, pictures of you eyes, etc. See doctor again where he does actual spend 15-20 mins explaining your eye condition, showing you pictures and what steps, medication he is going to follow. I feel like I understand my condition very well when I leave, but I hate everything except the last 15mins there.

by Tim W. on Jul 9th, 2013

Dr Auerbach and the staff at Eye Physicians of Central FL made my cataract surgery a very positive experience. I received excellent care and will not hesitate to refer Dr Auerbach to friends and family.

I was confronted over the past year and half with demising eyesight in my left eye. I learned I had a cataract on the backside of my lens and that surgery was the only solution. I spent 17 years in medical sales and most of that time working with orthopedic surgeons. I was impressed how clear and efficient Dr. Auerbach was. Most patients want the Dr. to spend so much time with you and he spent enough to know I was comfortable with my choice. His staff was more than helpful and a lot more clinical than I expected. They were able to pass along so much info to the Dr from the health and physical that only made the time with Dr. Auerbach that much more valuable. Today I went to my final post op appt. and nothing but success. I had a IOC- Inner Ocular Lens implanted and my eyesight improved to Full 20/20 and complete disappearing act of the stigmatism I had prior. I like to let friend and family know who ask me" How is you eye"? My response is-" I have a HDTV Eye and the other is Rabbit Ears". Thank you and Dr Auerbach i hope I do not see you in your office for the year you said is my next appt. When the time comes to do the other Eye, It is a CLEAR choice.

by Anne on May 2nd, 2013

We have nothing but the highest regard for Dr, Auerbach, as well as everyone we've come into contact with in his Maitland office. He performed cataract surgery several years ago and continual follow up for our adult son. Prior to cataract surgery our son had 2 surgeries for retinal repair and also 2 surgeries for eye turn correction. His vision is now 20/20 which is remarkable! Not only does Dr. Auerbach exemplify complete professionalism, but he is cheerful, friendly, and always patient, never seemingly in a hurry. We have had only very positive experiences with Dr. Auerbach and his staff and heartily recommend him!

My wife & I continue to look for Dr Auerbach and his staff to perform periodic eye exams, & treat occassional eye conditions. Over the years he has instilled in us a trust in his ability to correctly ascertain eye conditions and recommend appropriate actions. These characteristics of his skill make the 45 minute trip to his office more than acceptable.

Dr. Auerbach is the absolute best eye doctor I have ever been to in my 71 years, and I've been wearing glasses since I was 9 years old. He is thorough, knowledgeable and caring. With the state of healthcare as it is today, Dr. Auerbach stands out by caring for his patients as more than just someone in an allocated time slot. Excellent doctor, great person!

I have been a patient of Dr. Auerbach's for close to 10 years. I have always felt comfortable and confident with him as my doc. He is very thorough as is his staff. He doesn't rush appointments and always answers my questions. I recently had cataract surgery and am thrilled with the results and the attention that I have received. I couldn't ask for anything more. I highly recommend Dr. Auerbach. The other thing I really like about his office is if there is an emergency and he is not available, I have always been able to get in immediately with one of the other doctors and have received the same level of care and expertise I have come to expect and get from Doctor Auerbach. I highly recommend this doctor and the practice.

I had the best experience with Dr. Auerbach. I got an appointment in 24 hours. Went in fearing the worst but left with a benign condition. He was caring and compassionate and set my mind at east immediately. Incredibly friendly. The office staff was also very friendly. Highly highly recommended!
