Patient Comments (5)

I felt Dr. Eaton did not explain what he was going to do with prior explanation. He stuck an endoscope up my nose with no prior warning and I was schocked. I was billed an inordinate amount for a diagnostic procedure that he didn’t explain or ask me to sign any consent paperwork. I hear he is great...more

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.

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.

He is the best. I fly to San Diego from Hawaii to have him do Mohs procedure. Excellent treatment and surgical closures.
