"My philosophy in pediatric medicine is to first and foremost educate families in better understanding their bodies and their health. My goal is to work with parents as a team to make the best decisions for their children's health based on up to date medical information, and an understanding that every child, every family, and every situation is unique, and requires an individually tailored approach to achieving their health goals."
Dr. Auth's interests include cinema, traveling, gardening, cooking, woodworking and spending time with friends and family. He is an avid foodie and technophile.
Dr. Auth met his wife Dr. Melissa Przeklasa Auth in medical school. She is a pediatric neurologist practicing in South Orange County, and together they live in Laguna Niguel with their lovely daughter, Emma, who was born in 2010.
