The Worst Office
I've seen Honey East since she was at the Baptist. Ever since they made the move to their new place it has been a nightmare. The parking lot is too small, they overbook, they're trying to do everything by my portal which they never signed me up for so now I can't log in, they don't answer the phone so I can't get anyone on the phone to ask questions for help, they don't answer emails, I haven't taken my medication in 2 weeks despite calling my pharmacy every day. Workers are often moody/cold and take it out on the patients, Dr. East never addresses any of my problems that I put down on the questions they make you answer every single time you go back, in fact she hardly addresses anything at all and they constantly try to test you for stuff you're not there for. They never filed my last bill to my insurance and it's been months since I called about that. They often put info in wrong. They seem utterly in over their heads and lost and it has been a headache as a patient honestly.

Will not spend time / does not look at blood work sent to her - revenue by doing her blood work - will not explainer or listen to patients - does not give patients time to discuss care with her but sends in people to get her patient out as quickly as possible to get to next paying one . told to come back in a month when she had reports to start helping and is gonna wait a month to get blood work back when it was right in front of her / only concerned with revenue

Was seeing Dr East approx 1-2 yrs for Thyroid issues . Never did know how to treat And Dose Thyroid Meds. She kept saying my levels were fine when they were not . She will only test TSH AND T4 which is standard with ATA. When switched to another Practitioner and had the whole panel tested i was severely low in T3 and once that was added it was a game changer. Thyroid issues are not her specialty. FYI . She will run every test in the book but lacks in treatment.

Dr. East is beyond a good doctor, she is the best. If you spend a few minutes in the room with her you should be able to tell how brilliant she is. Her brain is always processing. Endocrinology takes time and lots of different test. You can’t give up on it before you reach the end. Trust Dr. East. She knows what she is doing.

Dr. East is brilliant. I always want the doctor who taught all the other doctors in town about her specialty. The respect the medical community has for Dr. East is amazing. Every single doctor and nurse friend I have says “you don’t have anything to worry about if Dr. East is your doctor”

I have been seeing Dr. East for the past couple of years due to thyroid issues. Unfortunately, I do not recommend her due to her poor patient care. She has be adamant about keeping my levels at a healthful state, but she has not been thorough in the level of testing ordered. Rather than running comprehensive thyroid panels, she only tests my TSH and occasionally Free T4. These labs are not enough to adequately treat thyroid diseases. Her bedside manner is very blunt and lacks empathy.

Dr. East was very pleasant and spent time explaining and answering questions.. She is very knowledgeable and professional but caring at the same time. Her office staff was very friendly and professional. I would have to say she is by far one of the best doctors and I truly trust her in the practice of medicine!

I have been around medicine for years and it is refreshing to have a doctor that not only cares about your individual health but also knows how to mesh the latest academics into clinical care. Its nice to see that she is still keeping up on the latest and is not afraid to be honest with you about each approach. I have gone from a very high A1c to a fantastic A1c because of her honest with the best medicines along with honesty in talking to me about losing weight and getting the right exercise.

Dr. East has been my endocrinologist for years, and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She always seems so concerned with how I'm doing. Easy to get into contact with when an emergency. Dr. East is my favorite endocrinologist that I've had in my 30 years of living.
