      Dr. Patterson expertly repaired my wrist after a nasty fall. He and his staff are very professional and caring.
      in Lakeland, FL |
      I have had many prior experiences with orthopedic surgeons and he is by far the best.
      in Lake Wales, FL |
      I didn't see Dr. Patterson today, I saw Kari Whitman. I'm a past patient of Dr. Patterson's. We saw Kari for discomfort in my left shoulder and follow up my right hand that he operated on. I still have numbness in the fingers. (Dr. Patterson replaced my right shoulder several years ago.)
