WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

"I have had the pleasure of getting to know Ms. Patton and witnessing her interactions with patients, colleagues, and medical staff at the hospitals I practice. She has an admirable professional demeanor which will be a great asset to our profession.

 

Further, Ms. Patton has received multiple awards through the years attesting to her leadership skills. These should easily transfer in an ability to communicate with colleagues and hospital administration.

The medical profession needs dedicated, strong leaders such as Chelsi Patton to address the challenges of the ever changing and complicated atmosphere the healthcare world has become. I welcome her into my profession because she will be a great asset."
