and raised right here in Sanford, Dr. Robert Patterson has more than 25
years experience as a Family Physician. His reputation
for superior expertise and a sincere compassion for his patients
precedes him wherever he goes. In fact, he's known nationally as a
medical pioneer and innovator in Family Medicine. Dr. P's philosophy for
success- to follow the Golden Rule- is actually a strong
component in his practice.
We strive to treat each and every patient as we
would our own family members. To our delight, this philosophy seems to
bring more new "family members" through our doors each day.
technically a Family Physician, in reality Dr. Patterson is so much
more. His specialties include Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
Preventative Medicine, Nutritional Medicine and HealingPrayer. He's
also one of just two family doctors in North Carolina belonging to the
American Academy of Allergy & Immunology. And as an allergy sufferer
himself, he's known for taking an integrated, aggressive approach to
alleviate his patients' symptoms.
In fact, Dr. P is known for
taking an integrated approach toward the problem at hand with all of his
cases. Because he has such an extensive knowledge of both westernized
medicine and what many call "alternative" treatments, he's able to draw
from both perspectives to offer relief as promptly as possible. So if
you suffer from something that's not easily treatable like Fibromyalgia,
ADD, Migraines, or Chronic Fatigue, this is probably music to your
ears. Even if you feel you may never have the need for alternative
medicine, its still nice to know Dr. P is a certified expert on both
side of the fence.
After receiving both his undergraduate &
medical degrees from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill,
Dr. Patterson spent his residency in Charlotte, NC. Additionally, he has
served on the faculties at UNC, Duke, and East Carolina Schools of
