    Dr. Thomas-Patterson, known as “Dr. Donee” to her patients and colleagues, is a Family Medicine Physician and Director of Medical Community Outreach at Einstein Medical Center.

    Dr. Donee is living her lifelong dream of building stronger, healthier families through outreach to underserved communities in the region.

    With specialized knowledge in the areas of preventative, adolescent and women’s health, Dr. Donee provides quality medical care and patient education to local organizations, including schools and faith- and community-based groups. Her passion for the well-being of others was demonstrated early in her career when she developed a women’s health clinic in French Indonesia through a Women’s Health Fellowship from Temple University.

    As part of Einstein's award-winning academic healthcare system, Dr. Donee collaborates with 900 AM WURD’s Sara Lomax-Reese and Einstein specialists to educate a broad audience on healthy living topics on the HealthQuest Live radio talk show.
