Dr Patterson was the first OBGYN I saw when I moved to Waco over 15 years ago. She\'s the only OBGYN I\'ve seen in Waco because she\'s absolutely phenomenal! very kind, caring and incredibly patient and informative, even about non-OBGYN medical issues. Dr Patterson always asks about my kids and my husband. Of course, she delivered both of my kids! And I truly appreciate that she takes time to hear about them and what they\'ve been up to. Dr Patterson is amazing and I\'m very thankful for her.
