A native of Nashville, Dr. Patton's perfect time off would be spent in the mountains, in the water or hiking with his wife, three kids or two pups Jax, a Golden Retriever, or Roxy the Shih Tzu.

I love the 'ministry' of taking care of families and being a steward of the most precious resource in the world: our children.
