Dr. Henry D Patterson


Dr. Patterson graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor's in Music from Brigham Young University. He then pursued his goal of optometry at The Ohio State University, where he graduated in 2011. Dr. Patterson is originally from the Bay Area and started practicing in Burney in June of 2012. He enjoys working in a rural community, where he can build relationships with his patients and loves giving quality and thorough care. When he's not taking a look at your eyes, he is busy with his four children, volunteering at their arts-focused school, tending to his chickens, cycling, playing games, or traveling with his family. If English isn't your first language, Dr. Patterson also speaks French, Portuguese, Spanish, and some German.



April has been with us since November 2012. She has a lot of passion for giving thorough, compassionate and excellent care to all our patients. April will be doing all your pretests before Dr. Patterson sees you. She is excellent at walking you through the process, and making sure all your concerns, health issue and questions are addressed. Sometimes, she may even be in the exam with Dr. Patterson, as a scribe, making sure nothing is missed.
