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 She was telling me I was wrong based off an outdated blood test.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

      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.
