Whenever I have a visit with the Doctor. I know that I will have 100% devotion of her time with me as a patient. She has changed my life considerably after almost 10 years of care. I know if she is ever late it is because of her 100% attentiveness to her patients. She is a rarity today in this profession , and your office should be proud to have someone as caring and attentive as her on staff. Dr. Patterson is someone whom truly cares about her patients , she knows everything about me , does not have to look at charts, and I know if I call her with a question she will return the call ASAP.
