In the hospital, Dr. Patterson's techs were extremely rude and invasive to me and the hospital staff, standing around in my room waiting for him to arrive even though I asked them to leave the room. Written instructions said to have an office visit within 1 week and yet the earliest his staff would give me an appointment was 6 weeks. I would not go to Dr. Patterson again because of his staff, which is a reflexion of him.
