About

Bio

Dr. Eastburn always wanted to be a physician. Involved in all sports through high school and college he was able to combine his love for medicine with his love for sports. I am a veteran and taking care of other veterans is paramount to me, their service to our country needs to be appreciated and revered. Being kind and compassionate, listening to patients, is the hallmark of my practice. Having a law degree is also a plus when dealing with many complex medical issues. God bless.
