What People Say About Dr. James Patton, MD

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.

Dr. Patton has been my neurologist now for several years. He's knowledgeable about my disease even though it's extremely rare. He listens to what I have to I have to say. He also responds quickly when I send messages thru their online portal. His staff is also great and have been extremely helpful in dealing with difficult pharmacy issies.

Dr. Patton treated me for approximately seven years, and I have great respect for him. He is a skilled doctor with a VERY quick mind. He is kind. He is the only Dr. that I have ever looked forward to seeing for an annual exam. After some tests, he diagnosed my disability. When I was asked by my employer to get a 2nd opinion regarding my condition, (for work related reasons) the Dr. who gave me the 2nd opinion said to me "why are you here? You are already seeing Asheville's area expert on your condition"!! (He was referring to Dr. Patton) I also benefited from seeing Dr. Patton's PA's. Payal Soni-Patel was always engaged and attentive, very sharp. And Rebecca McGowan suggested two additional treatment options in an attempt to help me. A special muscle cream and physical therapy for my hand condition. Due to the nature of my disability, I am no longer an required to be under a Dr's care; hence, I no longer need to see Dr. Patton. I will miss him. He helped me & I am grateful.

I have been a patient of Dr. Patton's since 2004/2005 and I could not be happier nor more confident in his care. Appointments are always easy and not ever stressful as the office is well managed. I have never had to wait long for my appointment and I have always been accommodated when I have needed to see him.

Dr. Patton has given me excellent care as well as answered all my questions and concerns. When I’m unsure of anything he’s been patient and taken the time to explain to me in ways I can understand.
