Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Patson "I believe that my role is to help people make the best decision regarding their care and then to administer that care with understanding and compassion. Each person's experience with their disease is uniquely different and they deserve respect, not to be lumped into a set of norms."

Patient Comments (2)

Missed diagnosis of serious condition even though patient reported symptoms to him many times. He did not do additional testing which may have found the problem.

Dr Patsin was a fellow when he directed my plan of care at fox chase. I give him so much credit of his knowledge base of lymphoma and his interest as a patient not just treating a disease. I'm so happy he is closer in vicinity. Assuring that there are good doctors in the Lehigh Valley
