Dr. Pattison is more than outstanding. She took her time addressing all of my concerns (there was a long list) and listened so carefully to me. I felt like all of my issues were addressed and felt so, so much better after seeing her. I can´t say how helpful it has been being under her care. I trust her without question and hope to continue to have her as my primary care provider for as long as possible!

January 2018
First of all, Dr. Pattison is the best physician I´ve ever had and I´ve been seeing her for probably two decades now, at least. She never makes me feel rushed or that she doesn´t care about my physical or mental well being. She´s able to explain everything well so that I understand what´s happening, what her recommendations are, and why I would benefit from following her advice. She makes me feel like a human being, not just another patient, and that we´re working together as a team. With her combination of knowledge and wonderful "bedside" manner, she should be nominated for Doctor of the Year!

excellent, caring physician
April 2017
My only "complaint" on this visit was that I felt a bit rushed. Dr. P. didn´t give me time to ask questions and I think it was because this was my first check-up since starting Medicare. But still! I have been her patient for several years & never felt rushed before.
April 2017
Dr. Julie Pattison has been our provider since the beginning of her practice at VMC. We so appreciate her effort to help us in preventive care rather than waiting for problems that have to corrected/cured. We have great respect and confidence in Dr. Julie.
April 2017
We fully appreciate Dr. Pattson and her assistance, the real reason we visit the clinic. #9. Outstanding!!
April 2017
Dr. Pattison is clear in her explanations and does not use patronizing language. She responds to all my concerns and offers treatment suggestions but allows me to make my own decisions.
March 2017
No complaints at all, and so far I really like Dr. Pattison. I´m a nervous talker, and she was very good at grabbing the relevant bits and giving me the information I needed. Not everything above applies, as it was a ´new patient´ visit, and I was referred to a specialist for something that still needs to be diagnosed.
March 2017
Dr Pattison has been my Dr for years and I am very satisfied with my care and treatment.
March 2017
LOVE Dr. Pattison!
February 2017
I had emailed mid-morning about a UTI that I was desperate to get antibiotics for.......within a few hours, the assistant had contacted me to offer me a 5 PM appt - which I realize is later that physicians normally take add on appts - so Dr. Pattison´s willingness to stay and see me (even though I was running about 10 minutes late to get to the appt) was wonderful.
February 2017
I´VE BEEN GOING TO DR. PATTISON FOR MANY YEARS AND I FEEL SHE´S SAVED MY L IFE TWICE WITH THE DISCOVERY OF A LUMP IN MY BREAST AND MY HEART THAT "SOUNDED FUNNY". WOULDN´T TRADE HER!
February 2017
She is an excellent care giver! She´s the reason I continue to go to VM!
January 2017
Thank you SO MUCH for allowing my doctor to spend more time with me during my annual physical! You streamlined the intake process with helpful forms that allowed me to think about and prioritize MY issues. That plus more actual time with the doctor made for a calm and focused meeting without frazzling me. This is a HUGE improvement!!!
