Verified Patient Reviews
I can't say enough about Dr. Pateder. He saved my life, literally. He fixed a botched surgery that another provider from a different practice performed. Dr. Pateder is one of the best Dr.'s I have seen. I highly recommend him.
Doctor was good but I was not impressed with the way office staff treated me. I was asked to put deposit of an approximate amount that was higher than the insurance copay. The doctor did not offer anything to relieve pain but asked me to make another appt. with his fellow doctor. Disappointed because after spending time and money no real benefit!
Dr. Pateder was very knowledgeable and personable. Fantastic!
Dr. Patedar came across thorough. Before him, his PA came in and did the physical examination and talked briefly about symptoms etc. This helped getting more of quality talk-time with the doctor. He was open to hear our questions and concerns. The Dr. didn't prescribe any unnecessary procedures. Excellent overall experience.
The professional and courteous staff were very helpful as always.
