September 23, 2009
COLLEGE STATION, TX - Dr. Adam P. Patterson,
DVM, DACVD, has joined the Texas A&M University College of
Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Department of Small
Animal Clinical Sciences as Clinical Assistant Professor and Chief
Dr. Patterson comes to the CVM after serving as a private
practice dermatologist in the Greater Chesapeake Bay area of
Maryland from 2005-2009. He notes that his practice philosophy is
to talk with clients, not to them.
"You can know a lot, but if you do not address the client's
concerns, you are worthless to them and ultimately their pet," said
While in private practice, Dr. Patterson supervised the
dermatological training of interns. As a part of his dermatology
residency program, he developed educational materials featuring
problem-oriented approach worksheets and lecture presentation, and
case-driven class notes.
In transitioning from private practice to the academic
environment at Texas A&M, Dr. Patterson noted the positive
relationship that the college has with its faculty.
"This CVM appreciates and supports the responsibilities of its
clinical faculty," said Patterson, "in training entry and specialty
level veterinarians while concurrently providing a service for the
Texas animal-owning population in times of need."
Dr. Patterson's clinical areas of interest include allergic skin
disease, autoimmune dermatoses and anal furunculosis, while his
scholarly interest is dermatology.
As a Diplomate of the American College of Dermatology (ACVD),
Dr. Patterson is certified as a veterinarian who has expertise and
specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of animals with
skin, mouth, hair, ear and nail disorders. He has significant
training and experience in the treatment of allergic disorders
including diagnosis and treatment of infectious and non-infectious
skin diseases, parasitic skin diseases, autoimmune diseases, and
chronic infections and inflammatory conditions of the ears.
Dr. Patterson has served the ACVD as Chair of the Website
Committee. Additionally, he has written articles and book chapters
addressing canine, feline, and small animal dermatology issues.
Dr. Patterson received his BS and DVM from Mississippi State
University, Interned at The University of Tennessee, and completed
his Residency at the University of Illinois.
