Dr Patterson DO

Reminds me of someone who got beatup in school and now has an opportunity to get even with people. He is not a caring person at all and if you cant meet that standard you have no business being in the medical field. Save your money and time see someone else...

Bad Doctor

I was seeing Dr. Patterson for about a year and half. No procedure he did for me has helped. The last epidural he gave me, has crippled me with shooting pains down my legs. When I got home from the procedure, I could not walk for over three hours. I called Dr. Patterson over four times, and never got a call back. When I finally got to see Dr. Patterson, we got into an argument about my condition. I was even kicked out of his office. If you value your health, do not see Dr. Patterson.

Tops in his Field of Expertise!

My wife has been disabled due to degenerative disc disease for years, affecting her quality of life. Dr. Patterson has been the only doctor after years of treatments and unsuccessful surgeries, to finally give my wife a chance of renewing her quality of life . His kind, personal caring of her is certainly appreciated and will never be forgotten

Saw Dr. Patterson today and he was very full of himself. Insisted that I never had a stroke. Made me feel horrible instead of helping me. Basically said I am imagining my symptoms just to get pain management .

Dr. Patterson was referred by my surgeon. The man was rude and did the wrong procedure. After this episode I discussed my experience with other doctors, PT, and previous employed medical staff who agreed with me and would never recommend the MD to anyone.
