About Dr. Patrylo

Philosophy of care

I believe in providing holistic care to patients. Too often in medicine, patients are seen as their disease and not as a whole person. I try my best to treat patients as full human beings, and always consider their backgrounds, culture, surroundings and the people in their lives who helped shape them. That’s a major reason why I went into family medicine. By listening and getting to know patients, I get a full sense of who they are. The relationship and trust we build is extremely meaningful and valuable to me, and allows me to provide the best care I can.

Why I entered medicine

I’ve always had a passion for helping others in need. When I was younger, I watched my mother go through so much pain and suffering due to a serious medical condition. She was fortunate to meet a group of excellent physicians and surgeons who not only changed her life but also changed my life and enabled me to dream of becoming something I never imagined: a doctor. After my mother regained her physical function, she was beyond grateful that she could provide for her two children again. She brought so much positive energy to our family. These physicians gave us hope and a second chance. I learned that a doctor can positively impact multiple lives at once and not just one person’s life. Now I try to do the same for others and share those special moments with them.

Community involvement

During my residency I volunteered in schools giving kids sports physicals. I found I loved working with children, and I especially enjoy caring for babies. Now, in addition to my regular practice, I elect to spend time doing rounds in the hospital nursery working with newborns. It is part of what I love about family medicine – the continuity of care. You start with babies, and then begin caring for the entire family. You really get to know each individual over the course of their lives.

Personal interests

My husband and I are huge foodies, and we love exploring different restaurants and trying new foods in the area. When I’m not sampling the local cuisine, I enjoy cooking Korean food at home, which I learned from my mom. I also love watching movies and TV shows after a long day of work – mostly dramas and thrillers. It’s my little reward, and a great way to unwind and relax.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
