Patrick Patten, M.D. has been appointed assistant professor of radiology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. Patten, an interventional radiologist, will practice at both USA Health University Hospital and USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital.

Patten previously completed his residency training in diagnostic radiology at USA Health and now returns to USA following fellowship training in vascular interventional radiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

“USA provides world-class care to the people of the Gulf Coast,” Patten said. “I am happy to join Drs. Abdul-Rahim and Hussain in providing cutting-edge minimally-invasive treatments with compassion while also training the future generation of physicians.”

He added returning to Mobile also gives him the opportunity to be closer to family and friends and the opportunity to enjoy fly fishing and Mardi Gras.

Patten is originally from University Place, Washington. He attended medical school at Tulane University in New Orleans and completed a residency in family medicine at Tulane-East Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie, Louisiana. He has also previously practiced as a hospitalist in Metairie.

“I love interventional radiology because it uses imaging technology to guide minimally invasive procedures that have lower risk and faster recovery time for patients, such as those facing dialysis or liver or kidney cancer," Patten said.
