"I was a patient of Dr. Patton several years ago. I had knee pain and he treated me before recommending knee surgery. I went through drop foot that was thought to come from my left knee area. He went out of his way to get me to the doctors that I needed for this treatment. He is an exceptional doctor and I highly recommend him."
