We covered my issue and upcoming surgery and when I left his office I felt reassured about Dr Patterson and my surgery.

Dr. Patterson was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He was also extremely kind. He explained my entire situation, and then sent me off for some further tests and referred me to someone who specializes in operating on my condition. It was a really good experience and he is everything you'd want in a doctor.

The doctor was fantastic in explaining and tutoring me on the aspects of what was happening. He was as good as I have been with. He did have someone shadowing him, and that person took assiduous notes. If he had to take notes and communicate I wonder if it would have been that exhaustive. I was very grateful for the detail.

Dr. Patterson was so kind to me to work me into his surgery schedule. I had been in pain for eight days and he said we need to take care of that now. I could have cried.
