It's very rewarding to find a very early subtle skin cancer that the patient was unaware they had, and thereby avoiding a potentially serious outcome.

David was very professional, and was very informative about the process. Would highly recommend David for your Dermatology needs.

I have always had excellent treatment at this office. I normally see Dr. Van Norman but a scheduling conflict resulted in an appointment with David Patterson. I was very pleased with him. I would readily see either of these in the future.I have recommended Dr. VanNorman to anyone who asks about a dermatologist and will certainly add Mr. Patterson to the recommendation.

Beautiful facility. Check-in area slightly confusing even though there is a beautiful sign. Check-in person very nice. Liked Dr.Patterson; he had been recommended by my husband. Visual check-up felt rushed. Maybe because Dr. Patterson is so good at his job. I’ll definitely return.

Hello, David does an excellent job. John

I have been seeing Dr. Patterson for years due to my alopecia areota(autoimmune disorder that causes a loss of hair at a very fast rate). I can always be certain that I will be seen at the time of my appointment. I also referred my dad to see Dr. Patterson and he was also very satisfied with his treatment to his pre-cancer that was located on his hand. We would recommend Dr. Patterson to anyone needing a dermotologist.

David is wonderful. I've seen him for over a decade and he has treated me with utmost respect, has listened to all of my concerns without rushing me out the door, and is always willing to treat any issues I have without making me jump through hoops or wait for things to worsen. I have and will continue to refer David!

this was a visit for our son. He was referred by his primary for some dark spots on his lower limbs. It was the first time he has seen our son. He examined the spots and also looked over this chest and back. No further treatment was recommended as the spots were non threatening. Professional
