I have been a patient for 35 years. He shows diligent interest in your health care. Wonderful bedside manner. I started going to him when my (at that time current) family practitioner pretty much gave up on me during an asthma episode. Dr. Patterson stayed by my side in the hospital until he was sure I was going to make it through. He listens well with any problem you may have and always does anything he can to help. You never leave his office without feeling better about yourself. Wonderful sense of humor. I have been with him so long, I can’t imagine him not being there for me. He has helped me keep my head above water during times of severe mental stress. He is a wonderful physician. I would recommend him to anyone (friend or enemy). You can ask anything and get his opinion plus the opinions of other health providers he communicates with. You get the ups and downs on both sides. His staff is always friendly and professional.

This Doctor is not only not requiring patients to wear masks in his office, he is not requiring his staff to do so either.

“Diabetics” My wife went to Dr. P for her diabetes. He was the only one that could control it. After visiting about every specialty clinic and Endocrinologist in Lee, Moore and Wake counties he was the only one able to help her. He approaches control in innovative ways; conceptualizing each individuals problems differently. Not the cookie cutter, one size fits all approach that others use that do not work for everyone.

I met Dr. Patterson for the first time yesterday. I was overwhelmed at his kindness, interest in my medical conditions, attentiveness to detail, and complete thoroughness. I called my family ecstatically, raving about what a great doctor I had just encountered. I would unequivocally recommend him to anyone in the Sanford/Fayetteville region.
