Patient Comments (1)
in American Fork, UT |
I had to have a hernia repaired recently and was very nervous about the procedure, I had a few other health issues that could complicate things. Dr. Patterson was very patient with my concerns and remembered them the day of the procedure, he reviewed them with my and answered all my questions thoroughly. I underwent the surgery and I'm feeling 100% now. He's a first rate person and a great surgeon. I highly recommend him.
