Took me back @ exactly my appointment time. Did my weight, height and BP. Took X-ray and the Dr came in; spent the appropriate time & then did a minor procedure on me and I was out in 40 minutes. I would not go anywhere else for orthopedic problems. The BEST!

If I could give less than 1 star, I would. The Dr has offices in Lakeland but only does surgery in Winter Haven!! When I expressed my unhappiness with this PROTOCOL, Dr refused to treat me. I find the Dr's PROTOCOL that forces me to ask someone (I am a widow with no family near by) to travel from Lakeland to Winter Haven and wait and waste an entire day ARROGANT and RUDE which is what I told them. If he prefers Winter Haven, then have his office there! His arrogance and rudeness extends to his staff, especially Stephanie. I am certain they have tagged me as a rude patient because I did NOT accept the idea of having surgery in Winter Haven when I live in Lakeland. That is fine. Maybe if more people spoke up about Drs' lack of concern for their patient's welfare, we would have a better class of Drs. Dr. Patterson has shown himself to be someone I would NOT want handling my surgery.

I met Dr. Patterson last July. He was very thorough. I will be having another meeting with him in a week or so to discuss the details of my shoulder replacement surgery with him. But from what I have experienced, he is very qualified to place in trust of my surgery.

Checkin was quick especially if you took the time to fill in all your information online. Wait time in the waiting room was short. Once in a room a bit longer. I understand why. Because he and his staff are very thorough a d take time with you. I had a nerve conduction text same day in office. I had the results and understood my options thoroughly by the time I left. A felt they were a very caring staff.
