Obstetrician Gynecologist: Latoya Patterson, MD, MPH


I’m Dr. Latoya Patterson and
I am one of the obstetricians and gynecologists with
Duke Women’s Health Associates. I see people for obstetrical care and
gynecological care. So when they’re pregnant, but then when
they’re finished child bearing, and they’re having other issues and
need a hysterectomy. And so,
there’s a lot of different things I do. I see people from all walks of life. Coming to see a gynecologist can
be really nerve wracking, and so at the start of the visit if I haven’t
met you before I like to you know, sit down and get to know you. And then we get into why you’re there,
what can I help you with. My favorite part is being able to
follow women throughout their life. And so you see them really early on when
they’re starting their menstrual cycle or having issues with their menstrual cycle. And then you know, they grow up,
they get married, they have a baby. You see them during their prenatal care,
you may deliver them. And then as they get older they transition
into needing other services from you. What I really like about Duke is that
all the sub specialties are here. And so you could see someone as
a generalist that are having issues or you figure out that they may have
cancer and then down the street, we have our GYN oncologist who
are available to help us and so that is really nice to
have those people at hand.
