This is an outstanding office. Dr. Patterson has been my physician for over 15 years. His staff is equally impressive. They truly care about their patients and will take very good care of you. I would not go anywhere else.

My family has been seeing Dr. Patterson for years. We really think he is a great doctor. He does take care of your problem, if it is something above his expertise, he will find you someone to help you. His office staff is always there to help you out with anything you need. When you go for an appointment, you never have to wait long. I like the fact that he doesn't just run in and run out. He will sit there and listen to you problems, and make you feel comfortable. Thanks for being our doctor.

Caring, spends needed amount of time with me, Actually LISTENS to me and takes time to make recommendations for care and discuss options or what I don't understand. He doe not make me feel rushed. He treats me with respect and doesn't talk down to me, which my previous physician used to do.

I was seen by Mr.Patterson 1 year ago,I didn't feel that my exam was thorough,but thought maybe I'm over exaggerating,(I had established care)so decided to return for my 40 yo assessment.This visit confirmed my thoughts,Mr.Patterson is not personable at all,I explained that I had felt my heart beating fast when at rest he acted nonchalant,and told me that this wasprobably normal.He told me that I would need to call my insurance company to obtain approval for lab test. He didn't seem to care.

Dr Patterson and his nursing staff are great!!
When I went in the doctor gave me a list of many things that could be wrong but told me there was no point in testing for them because there was nothing that could cure my swollen tonsils. He said I could have mono which would have been a simple test but instead told me we weren't going to test for it because there is no cure for it anyway.I would at least like to exclude that from what could be wrong. He spent a lot of time on his computer and less time actually examining my swollen tonsil.
