About Me

Care Philosophy

I specialize in shoulder and elbow disorders and injuries, arthroscopic shoulder surgery, and shoulder joint arthroplasty (replacement). When indicated, I use hands-on, in-office diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasonography which yields immediate image results. This imaging technology also assists in accurate needle placement when performing injections.

Came up with a creative way of treating my painful calcium deposit in my shoulder. Excellent bedside manner. He aslso treated a family member’s frozen shoulder and another’s broken collarbone. He’s thoughtful and comprehensive. Would highly recommend him. Beware of long waiting room waits.

Dr. Pattee is a surgeon that has integrity and honesty. Regarding my shoulder, he was able to identify and correct my problem. I like that he knows and uses ultra sound in his office to get an accurate diagnosis. I had a reverse shoulder surgery and revovered nicely. He came highly recommended from my ther doctors.

I like Dr. Pattee. His front desk personnel... not so good. They could be a little kinder and more courteous.

He repaired my right shoulder which had three frayed tendons, one split in half. He told me afterwards that he expected a partial recovery..... But we got to 95 percent. Outstanding. He was the best.
