  1. Dr. Patten: Just reviewed your WLOX interview with Jim Tabor from 4 years ago on Sep.11, 2013. It’s still impressive and appears you’re still doing now what you said you were doing then. If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. I knew when I first met you that you had the enthusiasm, motivation, and heart for Chiropractic. And a burning desire to help others. Best wishes for you and your family for calm wind and smooth seas in the future.
