Dr Patterson is wonderful! She's always so patient and so kind! We always look forward to our visits with her. She provides great information and is so encouraging! I never feel rushed and she answers all my questions.
Dr. Patterson was incredibly kind and understanding. She was also very nice to our other child, who attended the appointment and wanted very badly to also participate in the appointment.
Dr. Patterson was wonderful to meet with. She took time to familiarize herself with my son's birth history and recovery journey. She asked relevant questions and was encouraging about the challenges he's facing.
Dr Peterson did not garner my respect as a provider. She was intolerant of questions re: my daughter's care options and was defensive when I asked for clarification or more information about her conclusive recommendations. She was unable to fully explain the benefits and drawbacks associated with treatment options.
Dr. Patterson was very nice and took plenty of time to explain what was happening with my child, which I appreciated immensely. The one small issue I had was that occasionally I felt the medical lingo she used was more appropriate to my level and not my childs which didn't help my child do necessarily get on board with treatment without additional input/explanation from me.
Dr. Patterson made my child feel safe and comfortable during her visit. She was very helpful in relaying important medical information and very patient.
Dr. Patterson came in after reading the chart and was able to remember the history. It was great to see a physician spend that kind of attention to detail when treating our daughter.
Great Doctor! She is kind and listens. She was able to get the order for Impact testing for my daughter.
dr Patterson was personable, caring and made the visit pleasant and thorough!!

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 is so kind and caring. She shows patience with my child and remembers things she likes and brings them up to talk about with my daughter. She takes her time with us and explains everything in a way we can understand. We really enjoy our visits with Dr. Patterson!
The doctor was exceptionally wonderful to me and my son. this was our first visit with her and she just was so helpful and responded to every question.
Dr. Patterson is compassionate and caring for your entire family...not just the child/children who are her patients
Dr. Patterson is amazing with our daughter. She is kind and patient and takes her time. we don't feel rushed and feel as though our concerns about our daughter are heard.
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.
We had a great experience from the very beginning of our visit until the very end. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. Dr. Patterson was absolutely wonderful. She took her time with us, listened to all of our concerns, and gave us great information! She was so great with our daughter and treated her with kindness and respect!

Dr. Dina Patterson was wonderful taking as much time as we needed to talk to us and making my daughter feel comfortable. We can't say enough about her and will definitely recommend her to others. She was very helpful and informed and understood our concerns as well.
