I love that she takes the time to visit and talk to me. I feel she really cares about me and how I am doing.

Awful, unprofessional. Called to schedule a Dr.'s appointment specifically with the Doctor NOT a nurse practitioner. According to the scheduler, I was scheduled with the Doctor. The only appointment they had available with the doctor was 3 months out. So, I accepted it. I called 3 weeks prior to my appointment to see if anything may have opened up sooner and was told that the NP quit so my appointment would have to be moved out 2 months further than previous appointment. I said forget it!!!

Very condescending office & poor listeners. One my first (and last) I explained to the nurse my medical history and she relayed it to the doctor ALL wrong and when I tried to correct the doctor, she kept talking to me as if I were a child. She was telling me I was wrong based off an outdated blood test. I had to literally tell them to shut up so I could explain. I never went back. A doctor is supposed to be a great listener and Paterson is clear not that.
