Notable quotes from Dr. Patton’s interview:

Even before I started medical school I thought I had it all figured out, but things change.
I figured out pretty early that I had a strong sense of community and I really wanted to work in neighborhoods that didn’t have access to care.
I love to work in community practices.
Clint Arthur event at the Omni Hotel in Atlanta, GA. (Rob Tannenbaum)
Working with kids every single day and taking care of their families all the time was something that drove me.
Find ways to integrate work into life, and life into work.
Make a commitment to have fun in your life. Because the more fun you have in your life, the more satisfaction you’re going to have in your life, and the better your life will be.
