I've been a long term patient of Dr. Paterson and she has been awesome!!! She takes time with her patients and really works to alleviate their concerns. Great bedside manner and her nurse is awesome too!!! My only wish is that her practice would get an online communication system so that you email questions, etc. Regardless - I highly recommend!!

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 She was telling me I was wrong based off an outdated blood test.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.
