I went to the Emergency Room three times before I was diagnosed. It was Dr. Patterson that ultimately found out what was wrong with me. If it wasn't for him, things could have gone terribly wrong.

Dr Patterson is the only Dr I've been to who was not only empethetic to my pain but also healed it by at least 99%. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a neurologist! Thanks for everything Doc! - John K.

I went to see Dr. Patterson for severe lumbar pain. After reviewing my MRI's Dr Pattersom recommended a radio frequency ablasion on both sides of my lumbar region. Dr Patterson was extremely professional yet light hearted and took away any fear I had of surgery. He answered all questions asked and was extremely empethetic to my pain and quality of life. I would HIGHLY. Recommend Dr Patterson for anyone experiencing back pain. After the proceedures I've experienced almost a 99% reduction in pain.
