About the Practice

Gianna of Albany is pleased to be the first practice within a 2 hour radius able to offer NaProTECHNOLOGY™, the exciting breakthrough in women's health and fertility.  This breakthrough allows you and Dr. Patterson to work together to craft a plan for your health and fertility that is unique to you and to your body.  You and your input become an integral part of your care.  This will require visits that are significantly longer than those in traditional practices.  In order to provide this kind of intensive, personalized care, Dr. Patterson has simplified basic office tasks.  As a patient you can see your test results, pay your bills, send secure messages to the office, and receive secure messages from Dr. Patterson.  The websites that allow this to happen can be found on the Patient Portal tab, or by clicking here.


Gianna of Albany is founded on the premise that each person is a precious and unique gift from God.   It is committed to delivering excellent health care through medical and lifestyle interventions  that are consistent with the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Healthcare Services (ERD).   This kind of care is delivered with a deep commitment to honoring your dignity and treating you with the respect that you deserve.
