Told office staff I was wanting to get a pneumonia shot she told me I had to check with my insurance company before I could get it because it cost about 400.00 dollars for the shot. I really look at her like she was crazy. The staff is a little off to me they do the minimum of being nice but they're really not that friendly.

I chose Dr. Patterson mainly due to his reviews and availability. I was very impressed. The office staff was very friendly, office was clean and comfortable, and the wait time was very short. Dr. Patterson took a lot of time to listen and understand my issue and was very knowledgeable and helpful with a course of action. I was very surprised by the amount of time he took to see me and he did not seem rushed at all. It was my first visit but I was very happy with it.

Dr. Patterson and his team were very understanding when I had to reschedule my appointment twice, both on short notice and were able to reschedule each time to the dates that I had requested. Upon arrival at the facility the receptionist was very helpful. I arrived about 45 minutes early and Dr. Patterson saw me in less than 10 minutes after my arrival. The technicians were friendly and the Technician that took my blood sample seems to figured out how to do that without causing any pain. Great!

Dr. Patterson is a doctor that I often recommend to family and friends. He is extremely thorough and takes the time to listen to what I have to say. He includes me and my preferences in his treatment options. He explains medical issues in a way that I can understand. His offices are clean and comfortable, and staff makes me feel welcome. I can always get in to see him when I need to, and I have never felt rushed at his office. I feel like he and his entire staff are part of my health care team.

My wife is a patient of Dr. Patterson. Since coming to Dr. Patterson, from the initial call to set up an appointment, to a recent visit, Dr. Patterson and his entire staff has made my wife feel as though they have known her for years. There also has not been a long wait time to get in from the time you sign in until you see the Dr. We would recommend Dr. Patterson to our family and friends.

Dr. Patterson was very easy to talk to. I have never trusted doctors and have avoided them at all cost. I was dreading this appointment but after meeting Dr. Patterson I felt very comfortable. He was patient and very understanding. I had such a positive experience that I scheduled an appointment for next year. I have to also mention his nurse, Kim. She was amazing. She was very warm and kind. She helped in making the experience a good one. I recommend this doctor very highly.
