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.

For it being my first appt with Dr Patterson I of course was very nervous! But he was very nice and explained what my problem was and ask if there were any other questions I had with anything else. I appreciated that greatly!
Forefront Dermatology
Appointment was made for face condition which I explained when I made the appointment. David made some suggestions but stated he does not treat the problem I came in for and suggested I see the cosmetic dermatologist. My appointment was not made with the correct provider in the office, so it was somewhat a waste of time. David was great but couldn't really help me.

Great experience. My expectations were met.

This was my first visit. The appointment was fast and Dr. Patterson/ nurses were awesome! I will definitely be returning for future appointments and recommending to family. Thanks again!
Forefront Dermatology
The experience was very good. The only thing that was not so happy is something you probably can't control. Took me a long time to get an appointment. But I understand that is the nature of the business
