Patient Comments (26)

I most definitely will continue to recommend Dr. Paterson to anyone who is experiencing shoulder problems. He is a skilled, compassionate and caring surgeon. He has a special gift of explaining (answering questions) to his patients in layman terms. He is a great listener. I appreciate all he did...more

Dr Patterson took care of a partially torn upper bicep tendon and I'm healing really well at three months post surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing shoulder work done. He is competent and caring, taking the time to listen and explain as needed.

Dr. Paterson is a brilliant surgeon. He performed my reverse shoulder replacement and my recovery was meteoric. His bedside manner is excellent as he listened carefully to everything I said. He took the time to answers all my questions at each visit.
