Phoenix, AZ |
Dr Patino is a very intelligent doctor. And does brain mapping that you can't get done just every where. How ever his office support staff is very poor. I ran out of medication called on Monday morning and have called and left messages every day it is now Thursday and still have not returned my calls.

I saw Dr. Patino at Banner when I was 16. I later found out that he diagnosed everyone with bi polar. He is a horrible person. He needs to loose his medical license. Sadly the system is so broken they can't even hold a corrupt doctor accountable. He's a dangerous man and his colleagues will defend him because that's what they do. A lot of people blame the millennial generation for everything but this man is a product of a very broken system.

Considerate, caring, and most importantly, he's knowledgeable. This doctor put my well-being at the forefront of our care plan.

Don't go here. As soon as my insurance changed and I needed to see another doctor, he REFUSED to refill my prescription even though I only had 5 days left and it will take at least a month to get an appointment with another doctor. I believe this is irresponsible, dangerous and unethical as well. I could have lied and scheduled, then cancel an appointment to get the prescription, but that's not me. Find a doctor that truly cares about his patients, Dr. Patino isn't that guy.
Gilbert, AZ |
Rude and condescending. I only met with him 3 times and was told I was controlling, manipulative, and a liar. I probably didn't even talk for 10 minutes total during these three visits because he kept cutting me off and eventually I just gave up. He and my mother had a productive time talking about ideas to discipline me for being so awful and it was extremely awkward to listen to. Unfortunately, I was not able to have any visits without her. Walked in depressed, walked out completely suicidal.
