"The Rudest/Most "Disrespectfull Doctor"

My most recent visit to this clinic was a shocker for me I have never been treated in this manner by a doctor. My doctor wasn't present so they placed me with him. To begin he walked in the room said his name and asked what brought you in. I told him, and he asked who is your doctor I told him and he rudely asked, she is not here? I said I didn't know, he seems angry at that point maybe not wanting to bother, all that time he never once looked at me, then in a rude tone he shouted to me get up there... get up there as if he was taking to a kid or a dog. I said to myself good thing I have common sense to know what get up there means.. After I got up there all this time he hasn't said much to me he never checked me except for using is stethoscope on my back I had a thick coat on and I said should I remove my coat he once again in his rude tone said no I can do it. All this time he hasn't said much of anything except when I asked one question. After using his instrument over my thick coat he went on to quickly write my prescription I had a very bad cough so I thought he would have given something for my cough. When I took the prescription to the pharmacy I asked is there something for cough she said no only what he wrote. The same way he came in the room is the same way he left out of the room rude and insensitive. I hope I never have to run into the likes of him "as a doctor" ever again because that was a first for me.........

Best Dr. in Westchase

I have been seeing Dr. Patterson for over 20 years. He is very thorough and no non-nonsense. He will not prescribe unnecessary meds because the pharmaceutical industry pushes it. He will give you only what you need. My entire family and circle of friends have been referred to him and always have good things to say. Very trust worthy and knowledgeable.
