Great bedside manner, very knowledgeable. I was referred to this doctor by my OB/GYN Dr. R. Hirata after I suffered from seroma (c-section) and caught an infection inside the incision. This doctor cultured and cleaned the wound, then taught us correct procedures for cleaning and dressing--more than Dr. Hirata did! And Dr. Patterson was kind and understanding through it all. His receptionists and nurses were all very kind, too.
