I saw Dr. East after a referral from my primary care physician for COPD. Dr. East spent 1 1/2 hours explaining everything. He was so kind and helpful as were the entire staff members. I highly recommend him.

Dr. East is a wonderful doctor with incredible bedside manner and professionalism. I've been seeing him for almost 2yrs for Sarcoidosis and a pleural effusion. I couldn't recommend him higher, nor his office staff. They are a caring group of people.

I really appreciated how friendly and thorough the staff was! I was very impressed by Dr. East! He took time to get my background and ask questions before explaining what I am dealing with. He made sure I totally understand the causes and treatments available for my condition. He kept eye contact, even while putting his report on the laptop. I will certainly recommend him.
