Dr. Patterson was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He is a proud Fighting Texas Aggie, graduating from Texas A&M University in 2001, before earning his M.D. with honors from LSU Medical Center in New Orleans. Dr. Patterson met his future bride, Margaret, while in medical school and the two moved to Pennsylvania for specialty training, he in dermatology and she in pediatrics.
After completing his dermatology residency at Penn State Milton Hershey Med Center in 2010, Dr Patterson went into private practice back in Baton Rouge. Having become fast friends with Dr Eid during their time in Hershey, PA, in August 2019 the Patterson Family made the move to Fredricksburg, joining the Virginia Dermatology and Skin Surgery Center team (which is now a part of Pinnacle Dermatology).
His professional interests focus on primary medical dermatology, including: acne, psoriasis, skin infection, eczema/allergy, patient education, and skin cancer detection/treatment. He enjoys the great variety in dermatology, working with patients of all ages and skin types to find the best solution to their problems and to maintain comfortable healthy skin.
In Dr Patterson’s free time, he enjoys hunting/fishing, running, following the Aggies and Saints, and spending time with his wife and four boys: Patrick, Liam, Oliver and Philip. He takes pride in contributing to the health and happiness of our communities.
