Dr. Patton is an ophthalmologist who was born and raised in south Georgia. As the son of a Methodist minister, his childhood was spent in several towns across Georgia including Newington, Americus, Columbus, Waycross and Dublin. It was in Dublin that he decided to pursue a career in medicine, and more specifically ophthalmology, after going on medical mission trips to Jamaica with a group of local ophthalmologists. It was through these experiences that he discovered God's calling on his life to help restore people by restoring their vision.
After achieving an undergraduate degree at the University of Georgia with honors, Dr. Patton completed four years of medical school at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia, where he met his lovely wife, Elizabeth, who was born and raised in Blue Ridge. He graduated in the top of his medical school class and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society prior to graduation. Upon finishing medical school, he remained in Augusta and trained in a four-year medical and surgical residency in ophthalmology.
The Pattons have now relocated to Blue Ridge with the desire to fill an important need for eye care in the area, as Dr. Patton is now the only ophthalmologist practicing full time in Fannin County. They are also very pleased to be living close to their Blue Ridge family and friends.
On a personal note, Dr. Patton is a Christian and aims to follow the Lord in all of his endeavors. He believes that it is God's call and purposes that have lead him to start Blue Ridge Mountain Ophthalmology. He is also a husband and father who loves his wife and three daughters. As an ophthalmologist, he looks forward to having you as a patient and serving you to the best of his ability.
