My husband is a VET and has been going to see dr patterson.at the VA. However he had to have surgery for a matter related to his cancer. Sr Lin was going to do it but he left. So we went to a private practice. Shortly after the procedure the dr who did the surgery left for Texas! So we have no one to care for him. We had to go see the doctor that does not like to ask a question when the wife asks it. And he said he will treat Mack if we get all the problems from the procedure squared away. So no one is really doing much, he has a scope planned for end of the month with an outside doc. It’s so crazy! We usually have a good experience but since being placed on disability for this agent Orange it’s difficult for Patterson to know what’s going on and he doesn’t want to listen. No answers for Mack either. Very disappointing!!
I recently had to see Dr. Patterson because my regular Urologist was booked. Dr. Patterson was not only very cold and insensitive, he repeatedly interrupted me and rushed me through my appointment. He even had the nerve to suggest I was imagining my kidney stone pain. (A month later I ended up in surgery after his mis-diagnosis.) He treated me as if I was beneath him and wouldn't even shake my hand. I will NEVER see him again and I will spread the word to be cautious of him as much as I hate to do that.
