Dr Patton performed a bilateral knee replacement for me in June 2021. I have recuperated with absolutely no complications. I’m able to do just about anything I want to do without hesitation or problems. I only wish I would have done it sooner. He has awesome bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr. Patton should you need a knee replacement.

Didn't really seem to listen to my issue. They entire appointment was about 90 seconds long, he just didn't seem to care. Absolutely will not see him again. He told me to take Advil for a fairly serious spinal issue. My general physician told me to get an MRI immediately, and he tells me to take advil.

This so called Dr was the rudest man I have ever met! He hurt my foot to the point that I screamed so loud that the nurse heard me out front and asked me if I was ok. He then proceeded to tell me to be quiet, that it couldn't hurt that bad! He asked me what had been going on with it and literally within me being 10 seconds into trying to explain it to him, he said ok ok I get the picture, you don't have to keep droning on and on about it! Told them out front to NEVER schedule me with him again!

Dr. Patton is a great orthopedic surgeon. He's treated me for an Achilles' tendon repair, MRSA infection and 2 total knee replacements. I strongly recommend him to all of my friends. Often in physical therapy I'll talk with people who are rehabbing a knee replacement. I have noticed on multiple occasions that my post -op is going much better than people who had different surgeons. People who I talk with are amazed at how well my recovery is going compared to theirs. He fabulous.

He was amazing during my entire ordeal w/hip replacement surgery in Aug, 2016. He was again wonderful when my hip dislocated in September, 2016. He truly cares, answers questions & does excellent work. I'm so thankful I chose him!
