I really liked Dr Van Patten. I found him to be both caring and extremely knowledgeable. I went for my routine exam. However my husband had a very serious eye issue and we felt very confident working with Dr Van Patten. He was very thorough and ordered several tests and referral to a specialist; he made time in his busy schedule for daily appointments to start, then several times a week until he felt my hubby was improving. He really was wonderful.
Thanks for sharing such positive feedback about Dr. Van Patten. We feel fortunate to have him on our team and will pass on your kind words to him.
