Dr Tena Patterson seemed tired irritated and uninterested in my questions. she interrupted me while I was attempting to ask questions. She frequently rolled her eyes at me during the visit. This was my 1st visit to see her. However, due to the negative experience, it was my last visit as well.

My wife saw the same care provider right before me and felt that the care provider made her feel silly for getting a checkup because she had gotten a wellness woman's exam a few months before (pap smear) and told her its the same as a checkup. It wasn't the same as all according to her because they addressed different issues and asked different questions. However, I personally felt that she addressed my concerns.

I have been going to Dr. Patterson for about 15 years now and have always been very satisfied with her as my doctor. I have had a few problems over the years and she has always recommended a doctor for me to see about my condition. She is always ready to answer any question I might have. I also like her as a person beside being my doctor. She is very friendly and we have had quite a few laughs over the years.

This is my first time having a female care provider as she was researched and recommended by my wife. I was initially concerned about having a female doctor but my experience with Tina has proven that I was wrong. She has made me and my family comfortable and feel secured to have her as our family doctor.

I have been seeing Dr Patterson for 12 years and over the last year I noticed her attitude towards me changed. I thought it might be related to a bad day she was having or a personal issue so I looked past it. now I see that she dislikes me very much. I don't care why tho. Dr Patterson lost her cool with me on my last visit so I have now found a different primary care provider.
