Dr. Patterson did both of my carpal tunnel surgeries. No hassles staff handles everything smoothly including insurance. My surgeries were both very successful. It's very difficult to see the scar. Very pleased with how everything went.

He is outstanding! I trust him completely with my upcoming surgery, and trusted him to do what was right for me and for the future of my hand movement. I have and will continue to refer him to anyone that asks about hand surgery. His PA Tom was equally invested in my recovery as was Beth is scheduler and Rose his assistant. GREAT TEAM!

The doctor was very impersonable and rude. He yelled at me in front of his staff and other patients while I was in severe pain. He told me if they cut off my right hand, what would i do, but use my left?, as opposed to offering a solution. He was very rude. I advised him what the other doctor said about me, and he said, I dont care what the other doctor said, I am a specialist. He almost brought me to tears in his office. He lacked empathy and people skills.
