Having just met Dr Patterson, being new to Florida and assuming I would be facing surgery I was pretty nervous walking in his office. i was pleasantly surprised when Dr Patterson walked in the room and he made me feel like I have known him all my life. i dread the surgery but would not want anyone else handling it.

Lacks bedside manner, very rude, disrespectful and condescending. Over the process of 5 months he was never friendly. His ARNP was very nice but he was not. For the amount of money that we shelled out thru appts and surgery I would expect a little different demeanor.

Any bone setting or surgery is not cheap but, if you cannot pay your portion of the bill (what insurance won't cover), they will not allow payments, they will not provide you further service or surgery. However, for $183.00 you will wait and then, they will remove whatever bandages and apparatus that you have already paid for in an emergency room or doctor's office before your ill-advised referral to them. Finally, they will leave your injured area completely unprotected and send you packing.
