Hendersonville, NC |
Dr. Patton is a wonderful doctor. I have been to multiple physicians over the years, including ones at Duke and UNC, and he is the best. I am so lucky to have found such a kind and compassionate physician. I love his staff and his office. He is easy to talk to and he will listen to you. He has worked with my condition over the years and was able to find a medication that works for my particular neurological condition. He has been a godsend.

in MAGGIE VALLEY, NC |
one of the most efficient practices ever. Intake and registration were swift and easy with the electronic tablets. Staff was efficient but friendly. After registration, wait time was 2-3 minutes. In exam room, interview by staff member was immediate, friendly and thorough. Wait for the doctor was no more than 3 minutes. Dr. Patton was thorough yet conversational, listened, and discussed his opinion and recommendations in detail. A very personable man who also created an air of confidence.
