Chris Patton, M.D. | Board Certified Pediatrician
Dr. Chris Patton received his undergraduate degree from New College of Florida. He was a merit scholar in undergraduate and medical school. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Tennessee College of Health Sciences. Dr. Patton completed his pediatric residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, in Nashville, Tennessee. Following completion of his pediatric residency he did an additional year of residency training in Dermatology at Vanderbilt.
After residency Dr. Patton joined a pediatric practice in Nashville where he practiced for 22 years, doing general pediatrics and pediatric dermatology. He simultaneously served various pediatric leadership roles with non-profits and Vanderbilt University Medical Center in that community. In 2019, he followed his children west to embrace all the Pacific Northwest had to offer and practiced in a large group practice for three years. Then in 2022 he decided the time was right to establish his own practice, Pacific Northwest Pediatrics, a practice where families are able to see their own full time doctor creating more of a true “medical home” feel.
His perfect time off would be spent in the mountains, exploring the coast, in the water, hiking with friends or his always trusty companion Jax, a Golden Retriever. He enjoys skiing, backcountry adventure and biking. He loves to travel, exploring culinary hidden gems, and anything outdoors. His special talent is a bird that accompanies him and whistles during exams…listen carefully!
Dr. Patton’s passion is the 'ministry' of taking care of families and being a steward of the most precious resource in the world: our children.
Dr. Patton is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
