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.
