Dr. Lauren Richard Rosecan is a Board Certified Retina Specialist specializing in disease of the retina such as
macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions and retinal detachment. He has been in Palm Beach county for over 25 years and has three offices located in Palm Beach County in the cities of Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach and Boca Raton. He also has one office located in Martin County in the city of Stuart.
He chose to have different locations so he could make it easier for his patients to receive the necessary care.
Many of the local health care centers have approached Dr. Rosecan to see their patients. So many of these patients cannot afford to have health insurance and Dr. Rosecan treats them for free. Many of the patients that he sees are poorly controlled diabetics with severe diabetic retinopathy. There is never a time when
Dr. Rosecan will not treat the uninsured patient. He will perform complicated retina surgery for these patients also at no charge to them. He will fully examine the patient and do the necessary diagnostics to determine the type of treatment the patient needs. So many of the patients need extensive pan retinal photocoagulation
(laser treatment) to treat severe diabetic retinopathy and macular laser to treat diabetic macular edema.
His non-paying patients receive the same professional care and treatment as patients with insurance. Many times Dr. Rosecan is overheard saying “this is so sad that this patient has not received the proper care because they don’t have insurance”.
“As the aging and diabetic population grows in Palm Beach County,” said Dr. Rosecan “ so will the need for subspecialists trained in the precise diagnostics and treatments of these eye conditions. Helping people see better and preventing blindness is my greatest reward.”
