I have only gone to MAYO CLINIC (Scottsdale, AZ) for the last 21 years for my SPINAL PROBLEMS. After I read all the '5-Star Patient Ratings' on Dr. Richard Easton, and his physican-assistant Dr. Thomas Klick: I decided to make an appointment. WOW, I was pleasantly surprised with the level of expertise from all the STAFF from the moment I walked into their Rochester Hills, MI office. I wish I could give this extremely professional medical practice a 10-STAR REVIEW ! Rebecca Miller

This is my second spine surgery with Dr. Easton. My surgery has not been successful. Dr. Easton or his PA will not call or talk to you. Office staff has been rude and also will not return phone calls. If your surgery is successful,things will go fine due to the need not to get answers. Good Luck.

Dr. Easton is a gifted & skilled surgeon. Kindness is his forte. His nurse Sue is a gem. You'll be grateful to be in such good hands for this serious surgery. I wish the office was as professional, courteous, & concerned for the patient as he is. This office is poorly run, highly unprofessional, disingenuous & rude. Your appointment WILL be changed without consideration for your time, multiple times. Except it! I'd rather have a phone appointment w/Dr. Easton than deal w/this office staff.

Dr. Easton and his staff are very considerate and compassionate. Dr. Easton did my lumbar surgery in May 2017, and my cervical fusion in November of 2017. I had very little discomfort and now I'm pain free! Dr. Easton has a God given gift and if I or my husband should need spinal surgery, he's the only one I trust

From day one Dr.Easton made me feel like my life was to important to go through it in the pain I was in. He was so unbelievably kind and gentle, he was absolutely amazing! I woke up from surgery and i was instantly out of pain. Of course I had the surgical pain but that was all. Dr.Richard Easton saved my life!

Dr. Easton has been my surgeon for many years taking care of issues with my back. He is the most caring, warm physician I've ever encountered. He cares about you as a person not just "patient." He is absolutely the best there is when it comes to your spine and needing surgery.

Dr. Easton is one of the top doctors. Very educated. Compassionate. Doesn't rush through explaining complex, complicated procedures. I trust him with my life. I've been seeing him for over 10 years.

Terrible! His Associated anesthesiologist (American Anesthesiology) apparently has a serious "GOD" complex. I was turned away from a scheduled appointment although I was on time and was the first one of the morning, due to not having a five minute questionnaire filled out! the appointment was for a steroid shot to relieve bad back pain- that simply shows NO COMPASSION for a patient who was looking for pain relief and had to wait 4 weeks just to get into a time slot for it. Complete disregard!
