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.

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.
