My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as a primary care physician is to provide you with personalized care and attention with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. Lifestyle modification is emphasized and medicine prescribed as necessary, the former more effective than most people realize. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and you will benefit from the full extent of my 30-plus years in private practice. Some of my professional interests and areas of focus include high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and, for select patients, weight loss. 

As one of the few family medicine doctors in Houston, Texas, offering this personalized healthcare approach, I provide care that can help patients avoid needless trips to emergency rooms and urgent care centers, which are inherently inefficient and far too expensive. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time. Also, knowing you well enables me to get right to the source of the problem without becoming bogged down in excessive and meaningless data entry requirements. I do not use a computer when seeing patients. 

My primary care practice is located in Houston, Texas, and currently serves West Houston, The Energy Corridor, The Memorial Villages, Alief, Katy, Sugarland, Spring Branch, Bear Creek and Cypress. I am affiliated with West Houston Medical Center and am fluent in English and French.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Patterson

from Susan in TX March 10, 2024 for Bruce C. Patterson, MD

Dr. Patterson is an excellent doctor, particularly a good diagnostician. But one of the things I enjoy most is when we talk "cats!" He has had numerous cats over the years, as have I. We both love our cats like little furry children, and it is a pleasant experience to talk with a doctor about something non-health-related. It makes him more "human" and accessible. Going… See more

Dr. Patterson has been my principal GP for over 4 years. I have enjoyed this relationship, as he is a very thorough and knowledgeable physician. I feel extremely confident that Dr. Patterson is only a phone call away. I have had to call him after office hours and he would respond to my phone call or texts in a very timely manner.

I have never felt rushed during office visits. Dr.… See more

I love having a doctor I know cares about my healthcare. The fact that he sees me that day gives me a feeling of security. Also to know if my out of town daughter and grandson get sick he can see them.

from Rosemary April 3, 2019 for Bruce C. Patterson, MD

Dr. Patterson has been my primary physician for decades with good reason. Even before becoming part of the MDVIP program, he was always available and compassionate. His approach is to treat the whole patient, not just the presented symptom. He is conservative in his approach also and, as someone who doesn't expect pill magic every time, I very much appreciate it.

His followup… See more
