Anne Barañano, M.D.

Dr. Anne Barañano has a lifelong love of the Gulf Coast, its people, traditions and culture.

Dr. Barañano moved to Mobile with her family at a young age. It's here that she found a community of teachers, coaches, family and neighbors that encouraged her to explore her interests and education widely.

In high school, Dr. Barañano accompanied her father–also an ophthalmologist–on a medical mission to Central America. Influenced by the rich culture of Guatemala, Dr. Barañano would pursue both her undergraduate and master's degrees in Spanish. But, it wasn't until she returned to work in a Guatemalan Highlands clinic that her desire to become a physician emerged and her journey into medicine began.

Dr. Barañano obtained her medical degree from Johns Hopkins University where she discovered a love for the delicate and complex nature of ophthalmology.  She later completed her residency and fellowship at Doheny Eye Institute, University of Southern California. She is an active researcher and has published a study on the use of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for patients with age-related macular degeneration.  She has a special interest in uveitis and complex vitreoretinal surgery such as diabetic retinal detachments.

As an impassioned proponent of patient-centered care, Dr. Barañano values an active partnership with her patients.  She strives to provide the highest quality care with compassion and dedication.
