What People Say About Dr. John Patterson, MD
Reply
Would not recommend. Dr Patterson was friendly, but did not prescribe medications appropriate to my illness and situation and did not prescribe any medications for other symptoms (hacking cough). Had to call the nurse on-call after 2 additional sick days to remedy my illness.
