"My visits have been pleasant, friendly and professional. Today’s surgical visit was similar and efficient. Being injured and in pain is difficult enough. Dr. Patton and his staff not only help you recover, keep you informed, but make an otherwise difficult time easier."

"Dr Patton put me on the path to fix my bum shoulder. Just as he told me, it has taken a while but my shoulder is much better. No long waits but took plenty of time explaining my situation."
