Dr. Easton Jr Says:

It is my philosophy to spend more time with patients than average to be sure everything of concern is taken care of. Sometimes this leads to being late for the next appointment. I'm also very comprehensive in my follow -up visits and  I may ask you to return for additional follow-up to be sure all concerns about your eyes have been satisfied. I look out for my patients like family.

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. .
Cj: Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful remarks. Your time is precious and I appreciate the time you took to rate our practice. As you know, we both live by "Service above Self" and I will continue to serve the community and my patients with the utmost care. Regards, Dr Bob E
