Dr. Pickens A Patterson III has the following 2 specialties
- Pain Medicine
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

What else can be said? Dr. Patterson is truly a "Top Doc". The time he spends with the patients, the level of care, concern & just the overall respect he shows everyone. He's keeps the patient informed about what he's doing & the plan of care for them. His staff is very professional & are equally nice & caring for the patients. He's been my doctor for 9 years & will continue as my pain management specialist forever. If you're looking for a smart, handsome (it helos), caring, compassionate doctor with a dynamic staff make an appointment. You won't be sorry
Before becoming a patient of Dr. Patterson's I didn't think that I was going to ever experience life pain free again, I was told by other physicians that I was going to be in pain for the rest of my life and I just had to learn to live with it . Not True .... Dr. Patterson has given me my life back !!! Dr. Patterson listened and heard all my concerns and took the time to educate my spouse and I on diagnostic tests and procedures. He had the best bed side manner I have ever experienced. Thank you Dr. Pickens Patterson and Camp Creek Staff.
Dr. Patterson is a wonderful physician. He is very intelligent - knows just the right questions to ask - while also very empathetic to patients' pain. I experienced severe back pain for years. Dr. Patterson worked with me to identify the source of my pain and to develop a treatment plan that has worked wonders to improve my quality of life. Dr. Patterson took his time to ensure he accurately diagnosed the cause of my pain and recommended a comprehensive treatment plan, while also ensuring I fully understood everything he planned to do. I highly recommend him.
I was always treated with respect and made to feel like a fellow professional. I do not get along with his replacement. He listened to what I said and I felt comfortable with him.
