I do and would continue to recommend Dr. Easton. He is thorough in his examination and explains your condition thoroughly. Very pleasant office with a great staff. I trust his recommendations and he answers my questions without making me look stupid, and spends just enough time with me during my appointment. There is no waiting time as you are taken almost immediately when you walk in through the door at your scheduled time. I would definitely recommend Dr. Easton and services, etc. .
