What People Say About Dr. Joel Patterson, MD
Reply
This Dr has a terrible bedside manner. Throughout my visit he was telling me everything my Orthopedic Surgeon said was wrong he had his hand on his face rubbing his head like he was bored or frustrated with me. It was my first and LAST visit with him, I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy!!!
