Ratings for Dr. Melanie C. Patton
She stated that I did indeed have a sinus and eat infection but still wouldn't prescribe an antibiotic. Her reasoning being that I didn't have a fever. I have had pneumonia and no fever, so don't understand her rational. I understand over prescribing of antibiotics but I was miserable. Her recommendation was for supportive care OTC meds. Had to go see a different doctor to get any relief. Waste of time and energy.
I only saw this so called doctor twice. I asked her if she wanted to see my medical records ie. history of my chronic problems. She said "NO". I never was able to explain to her because I was in so much pain that I was diagnosed over 10 years ago with Fibromyalgia and chronic arthritis, glaucoma and tinnitus along with hearing loss, not to also add that a U.S. Judge declared me disabled. She told me she wanted to help me yet she disclosed to me that she would be leaving the medical office I saw her at to join another office that I had previously left due to their incompetence. I moved to this state for the warm climate because of my chronic pain which she told me to go swim. I know that as I will reiterate how I've been afflicted for many years, only now realizing that the Doctors in this state are beyond substandard! I regret moving here and I had to call a former doctor to get medical attention because this doctor would not prescribe to me certain drugs that I don't abuse but use!
Dr.Patton was a very smart and awesome physician. She listens, gives her professional opinions regarding various diets and will find solutions for better health care. I am not certain whether I will continue to seek medical treatment at Sunnyview Medical Center since she no longer practice there.
October 17, 2011 Dr. Patton is a very knowledgeable family physician she will think outside the box to find out what is wrong with her patients all the time. She does not give up on finding the diagnosis for her patieints as well. I highly recommend her as physician to see.
