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.
As an Optometric Technician, my main role is to assist Dr. Patterson in providing you with the best possible eye care. Prior to your visit with the Doctor, I perform a variety of tests including ERG's, autorefraction, tonometry, visual fields, retinal photos, and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scans. Each of these tests is useful to Dr. Patterson in determining your proper diagnosis and treatment plan. At first, some of these tests may seem a bit intimidating or strange. However, my goal is to make you as comfortable as I can during the testing and to answer any questions you may have regarding the process and the equipment.
