I saw Mary the P.A. and she was gentle and kind. Her nurse Suzette was the best. She takes her time and she is loving and kind. I would definitely go back to see Mary and Suzette.

Dr. Pattison and her nurse can be very harsh and uncaring. She kept telling me to calm down and take deep breaths. She made a statement if you can't calm down we will have to send you to the hospital. Everything she said would cause anyone to get more upset rather than calm down. She needs some serious training on how to be more compassionate and how to de-escalate a patient that is upset. She is very harsh and gets annoyed if a patient is upset. She shouldn't be practicing in the medical field with how she treats patients. Go to any other dermatologist than Dr. Pattison

Dr. Pattison double books patients, so you have to wait at least 45 minutes before she even sees you. Her annual exam is quick and not very thorough. She and her nurse are very cold and incompassionate. I would recommend Dr. Pattison and her staff get training on customer focused care. They need to learn how to speak to patients and not berate them and make them feel bad.

This woman is nasty.I had laser hair removal and asked what the intense flash I was seeing was even though my eyes were covered. She got all huffy and accused me of being too upset to continue with the procedure even though I was not upset. She kept insisting the flash was bothering me even though it wasn’t. She was incredibly rude to my coworker after her diagnosing her with lupus. Coworker started crying and Pattinson walked out, telling nurse to “deal” with her.

Wow! I saw Dr. Perlmutter in this practice and she was FABULOUS! Her nurse Hope was also WONDERFUL! I've been to several of the local dermatology offices and can say that this is THE BEST! All of the staff from start to finish were kind and courteous. The client flow was smooth and quick. Dr. Perlmutter was friendly and kind - giving me choices and explaining in terms that I can understand. Won't hesitate to recommend!

I had a very unusual form of skin cancer. I found Dr. Pattison to be knowledgeable, helpful and calming. I went to her for a second opinion because the first doctor I went to was awful.

21 years ago I was referred to Dr Pattison for a spot on my body. She took it off, biopsied it, and thank God she did! She has removed cancer several times from both my Husband and I. She found it Not us. Dr. Pattison is a very focused Physician. She picks up on everything on our bodies. She not only cares for our skin, she cares for us as people. If you are seeking a Truly Excellent Dermatologist We Highly Recommend DR. THETA PATTISON and her wonderful Staff.
