Quality Health Care 


Physical Exams include a consultation, laboratory testing done in our office, EKG's and hearing tests.  We generally schedule physicals in the morning considering that you will be fasting for your blood tests in order to get the most accurate results.  We expect you to fast from midnight the night before - that means nothing to eat or drink after midnight except for water. Physicals generally take up to 1 hour with new patients up to 1 1/2 hours. 

Vaccines are provided to update or for travel if needed.  We offer most vaccines except for yellow fever and COVID-19 vaccines.

Appointments are always necessary. Even if you are only coming in for laboratory testing, blood pressure checks or vaccines, we require you to call at least a day prior to your visit to the office.  If you cannot keep your appointments with the doctor, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance.

You will always receive a call regarding your laboratory results drawn in our office regardless of the results. This will provide you the opportunity to ask additional questions or update any medications you may be taking. As always, we aim to do our best to provide you with the highest quality medical care possible.

Preparing for your visit.  If you are coming in for a physical, please come in fasting and take your medications as you normally do with water. A facial picture may be taken of you during check-in for identification purposes and kept in your chart for documentation only. We have found this to be enormously helpful.

Dr. David Patterson does not accept any insurance.  This office is a self pay office and payment is expected at the time of service. We accept all major credit cards, health savings cards, checks and cash.  He has opted out of Medicare as well. If you have Medicare Part B, you must sign our Medicare Contract agreeing to not submit to Medicare for reimbursement. However, you can submit to your secondary insurance instead with our Medicare Opt-Out Receipt.
