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.
