Chris Patton, M.D.

Chris Patton M.D.

Dr. Chris Patton received his undergraduate degree from New College of Florida. He was a merit scholar and 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, similar to Southern Oregon Pediatrics, doing general pediatrics and pediatric dermatology. He simultaneously served various pediatric leadership roles with non-profits and Vanderbilt University Medical Center in that community.

His perfect time off would be “spent in the mountains, in the water or hiking with his wife Kimberly, three kids or two pups Jax, a Golden Retriever, or Roxy the ShihTzu. He enjoys skiing, hiking and biking. Kimberly and I love travel, exploring culinary hidden gems, and any outdoor adventure.” 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.
