Patrick is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. He and his wife have three children, Harper, Jonah and Levi.
He explains his philosophy of practice like this: "One of the challenges in my job is remembering that although I might see 20 or more people in a day, each patient only has one doctor’s appointment. I try to give each patient the time they need and the opportunity to have questions answered and make sure they understand our plan of care. I believe my job is a ministry to the community of Medicine Lodge and try to treat my patients accordingly." When not at work, Patrick loves to spend time with his family, and he can occasionally be found in a tree stand in the fall.
