You will not find a better doctor in the Atlanta area. Dr Patten is thorough, compassionate, kind, and caring. He will spend just as much time with as is needed and never rushes. Yes, you will most likely wait a very long time past your appointment time, but it is well worth it given how attentive he is. I cannot say enough good about him!

I was referred to Dr. Patten, This relationship lasted about 5 years. The relationship started out fine an he appeared as a Doctor who cared, as time increased the service decreased. Rude customer service from office staff. I posted a review and I then started to receive better service. After receiving better service I was asked several times to recant my REVIEW, since I didn’t I received a letter telling me I was no longer wanted as a patient because I wouldn’t follow his direction on meds.

This an great doctor who takes his time with patients and, from what I feel, is genuinely concerned about their well-being as well, as all doctors SHOULD be. His intuition, knowledge, and resources have helped bring me to a place of resolve after years of being in the dark. A courteous and professional staff are on board with him as well!
