I was not even able to make an appointment. Dr. Auran's office refused to make an appointment unless I could tell them whether I had Blue Cross PPO or HMO. I explained that I had neither - I have a Blue Cross Blue Shield High Deductible Health plan. They were not helpful or nice and refused to make an appointment - even thought I explained to them that it was not right to refuse to make an appointment until I faxed them my insurance car. I was really hoping to see Dr. Auran as I had just had iol surgery out of state and was in pain and was hoping to see a doctor in the city. This is a shame because Dr. Auran has great reviews.
