Raymond G. Magauran, M.D.

OPHTHALMIC PLASTIC SURGEON

Dr. Magauran attended the University of Connecticut Medical School, graduating in 1989. As a Scholars in Surgery recipient, Dr. Magauran was headed for Orthopedics or Trauma Surgery, until he discovered Ophthalmology. With a penchant for physics, ophthalmology combined medicine and physics in incredible ways. He was hooked. After a year at Hartford Hospital and a year as a general practitioner in East Longmeadow at the Medical Care Center, he headed down the road to ophthalmology.

Dr. Magauran is at home in the Springfield area. He grew up in Hazardville, Connecticut where his father was a family practitioner who instilled in his twelve children the value of being care givers. Of the twelve children, nine are in healthcare: 7 MDs, 1 DC and 1 EMT. They represent the fifth generation of Magauran physicians. There is now a sixth generation Magauran in medical school too.
