I have been a patient of Dr. Eastern's for a VERY, VERY LONG time....at least twenty years! He is absolutely top-notch....seriously none better. I will admit, there can be long waits in the waiting room, but I think this is attributed to the time Dr. Eastern affords his patients, not necessarily "overbooking". I find all but one of his staff to be friendly, and the one nurse who is less jovial, happens to be especially competent.

Never ever go to this clown he makes appointment s for nine am and shows up 945 and he scheduled 8 people for the first appointment greed greed good luck with this guy

Terrible! Staff is rude, he is always late! Promises every time his lateness was booking errors but it's exactly the same excuse for every appointment! Out of 16 appointments he was on time twice. Total disregard for his patients time! Next time I'm finding some other facility who will treat its patients like they are appreciated, not treated like they are fools by giving false promises only to continue the behavior, totally disrespectful!

Dr. Eastern has little respect for his patients' time. He over books appointments, resulting in typical wait times of an hour minimum. It's so disrespectful. Then he rushed through the visits and did not give me explanations or information about my issue unless I asked him many questions. I went to him for four visits because I was referred by my primary care physician, but I will not be going back.

I find Dr. Eastern to be very pragmatic Magic in determining the course of treatment. He is thorough, friendly and very competent. Only drawback is his caseload-causes some long wait times.
