This doctor and office are amazing! I have MS and Dr. Patton and his staff are wonderful. I have been under his care for 2 years but have been managing my MS for 22 years. He is one of the very best doctors I have seen for treatment of my MS. I would and have highly recommended him and his staff to several people that have concerns about neurological needs. He takes his time, answers all your questions and provides top notch guidance for the best treatment. If you are looking for a heartfelt doctor and staff that cares about you and your health this is the office you want!

I also have my speciality medicine for MS administered at Dr. Patton’s office and am extremely pleased in their ability to administer it in a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere. Thank you Dr. Patton and all at Asheville Nerology.

Dr. Patton is exceptionally competent, professional, and caring. If there was a 5+ available, that would be my rating. He's the best movement disorders neurologist I've seen in my 8 years of struggling with dystonia. I highly recommend him!

We waited for 4 months for a visit with Dr. Patton and it was well worth the wait. Everything that we read and heard about Dr. Patton was right on target. The moment he walked in the room and introduced himself we were immediately comfortable with him. He was very thorough in his exam, his questions for my wife and his explanations of treatment adjustments. Dr. Patton was very engaging, empathetic and also had a great sense of humor that helped put my wife at ease. We're thrilled that Dr. Patton is my wife's new neurologist.

Here are feelings after my first visit to see Dr. Patton. He is both a professional and a personable man. I immediately felt comfortable with him. He took time with me while doing various tests including walking down the hall with me and keeping me from walking into the wall. He confirmed my diagnosis of PSP and gave me helpful information about dealing with PSP in the future. I really look forward to my next appointment coming up in August.
