    Physician was OK I guess. The front desk is a mess. The reception is rude and more interested in talking about movies. Same for the nursing staff. No thanks, we won’t be back.

    Whenever i see a negative review, i wonder how can one go wrong about Dr. Temp Patterson. He is upfront, on your face, but he is honest. He rightly said, he is like a traffic police who gives u a red signal. One can shoot the signal, still remain lucky to live, or as fate decides, meet with an accident. Dr. Patterson is the best in his job, and if he is highly paid, it is because of his work I am thankful, we still have such wonderful doctors.

    I took my dad to Dr. Patterson several times a few years ago. I saw first hand how he treated my father. I was so impressed that now I see him when needed. Jul 12, 2016 I visited him and he is still awesome with his professionalism and caring.

    After lots of research I selected Dr. Temp Patterson for a tonsillectomy. Since I am 34 years old, I was worried about the pain and length of recovery. Dr Patterson was experienced with the tissue welding technique for removing the tonsils which was supposed to reduce pain and recovery time. Dr Patterson was very knowledgeable and professional, the surgery was quick and post surgery pain was low. After 3 days of taking it easy, I was out mountain biking and enjoying life.
