Dr Patterson has been my physician for over 10 years. He is courteous and responsive to me as a patient. He always gives me adequate time to ask questions and spends the appropriate amount of time talking to me. His office is run efficiently. I never have had a problem scheduling an appointment. I've never had any complications when blood is drawn. He demonstrated genuine concern for my health and makes the appropriate recommendations for health improvement when needed.

Dr. Patterson is an exceptional physician. He is not only knowledgeable but he concerned about your health. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and addresses each one. Even though I wasn’t happy about the results of my test. Dr. Patterson encouraged me by letting me know this wasn’t a permanent condition and by making lifestyle changes it could be changed.

Brensa in Memphis – Jan 04, 2018
Very impersonal. I felt rushed and as though I was not being heard throughout my appointment. His lack of eye contact and thoroughness was very disconcerting and something I am very unaccustomed to when seeing a Doctor. His lack of compassion and personal skills might have been made up for in expertise, however I felt the experience lacked in all categories and left feeling disappointed.

Dr. Patterson is an EXCELLENT physician. He is very attentive and extremely concerned about my health and well-being. Once, I needed help after hours and the call that I received was from HIM...not one of his staff members. I really feel as if I matter as a patient.
