      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.

      Very friendly and explained problem and options thoroughly. Surprisingly pleasant experience considering at a doctor appointment.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Patterson's Care Philosophy

      As a physician, my aim is to partner with the patient to provide them the best care possible. I strive to present as clear an explanation of their condition as possible and of all treatment options. I will summarize and present the most up-to-date information garnered from years of training at the best institutions as well as by attending yearly national meetings and CME courses, constant review of peer-review literature and communication with colleagues at academic centers around the world.
