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.
