Dr. Patterson was a blessing. She took the time to speak to my son and explained things to him in a kind and gentle way including cautions with the medicine prescribed. It was a relief to meet with a doctor who took the time and made the effort to understand his situation. She was encouraging to him as well.

Dr. Patterson was excellent. She spent time really studying my child in order to make proper diagnosis. She was very gentle with him but was also thorough in her exam. I would highly recommend Dr. Patterson.
