Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Eaton "Jeff Eaton, M.D. is a board certified Head and Neck Surgeon specializing in skin cancer/Mohs surgery and facial plastic reconstruction. He is unique as one of a few head and neck surgeons trained in the Mohs technique for skin cancer removal and advanced reconstructive techniques. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of California Berkeley, Dr. Eaton earned his medical degree from the University of California Los Angeles, School of Medicine. Following an internship in General Surgery at the University of California Davis and a residency in Head and Neck Surgery/Otolaryngology at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Oakland, California, he then completed a fellowship in Mohs and Cosmetic Surgery at the University of California San Francisco. In 2001, Dr. Eaton was excited to return to his home town to join the prestigious Scripps Clinic in La Jolla. There he was an active member of both the Head and Neck Surgery Department and Mohs and Cosmetic Surgery Departments prior to starting a private practice in 2007."

Patient Comments (3)
in La Jolla , CA |
Dr Jeffrey eaton Needs to practice more, he said he has over 10+ experience but he ruined my face. The results I got after the surgery is horrible. He seems to be more about money. I would advise him to be more truthful.
in San Diego, CA |
Dr. Eaton did a terrible MOHs surgery on me, leaving me very badly scarred. He claims in his online write-up to be a plastic surgeon (trained) but no plastic surgeon would have done such a terrible job.
in Kailua Kona, HI |
He is the best. I fly to San Diego from Hawaii to have him do Mohs procedure. Excellent treatment and surgical closures.
