With the office downtown, parking is rough. Very few parking garages around the building take cash, so come prepared! The office was clean & modern. I wasn’t impressed with the doctor though. He wasn’t particularly friendly, and did a very poor exam (I’m a nurse, so familiar with physical exam!). I won’t be back.

In a world where appointment times are shorter and everyone is in a hurry it's pleasant to see Dr. Patterson getting back to more personalized patient care that most patients desire. When seeing Dr. Patterson I never feel rushed and he always takes the extra time to explain the diagnosis and treatment plan with great detail. I'm fortunate to have Dr. Patterson as my PCP and look forward to continuing in going to his practice for any medical needs for years to come.

I was able to meet Dr. Patterson today for the first time. I had been seen by his Nurse Practitioner Katherine Ahlfeld 2 weeks ago. Because I have a very complicated history, Katherine felt it was best that I meet everyone that would be involved with my care. Dr. Patterson and his team seem very in touch with their patients. I definitely felt like they all work together for the best possible outcome when it comes to patient care. I know this was my first visit with Dr. Patterson, but if this is how they treat their patients, I know I will be with them for the long haul. Thank you Dr. Patterson and Katherine for two great appointments.

Today was my first appointment with Dr. Patterson. New to the community, establishing with a new doctor was an important concern for me and my husband. Dr. Patterson was exactly the doctor I hoped to find. An excellent listener, patient with my questions and understanding of my hesitations. An authentic, caring doctor. I left feeling heard, with a plan of action, knowing what to expect next. I feel we made a very good choice selecting Dr. Patterson.

When I arrived at this appointment, the office was full of patients ,but the staff was efficient and nice - and, I was promptly seen by the doc at my appointment time. My exam was not rushed at all. It was a thorough exam, I left with a reasonable plan for my problem, and I felt like Dr. Patterson and the staff were friendly and interested in making sure my visit went smoothly - for a trip to a doctor, it was as best as could be. I have a new doctor and hopefully a quick fix for the problem bringing me there.

I was a new patient, and I work in the medical field as a practice administrator. The entire experience was great! I have been having some issues, and Dr. Patterson was able to come up with a plan of action, which I appreciated. He also took my opinions into account on the plan of action so that I felt comfortable with it. I felt extremely comfortable sharing my life story after just knowing him for a few minutes, so his bedside manner was really good. Very laid back and kind. I also got in to see him within days, which is hard to find these days. Definitely recommend him to others!
