“Doug and Carol were able to capture my vision with sensitivity and make it a reality. It is rare to find such creative and technical talent together. I hear from friends, museum heads, the City of Seneca and even a marketing firm in NY, “Terrific, Tremendous, Phenomenal,” and that this site is, “out-of-the-box thinking for a Historical Museum.” Pinnacle continues to carry the new Lunney House Museum branding through-out promotional materials and advertizements. I have joined this team as an Historical consultant.”
[NOTE: The city of Seneca took over both web sites we created for them and eventually replaced them to suit their “new vision” for city museums.]
Dr. John Martin, Director and Curator - The Lunney House Museum, Seneca, SC
“Doug and Carol came highly recommended and have certainly lived up to that recommendation. They patiently and meticulously helped to bring our vision to reality. From the moment they walked it the door and creatively suggested our antique mirror become our logo I knew they too had vision and a love of History. Their photography is beautiful and expresses the beauty of what we wish to share with our guests. Dr John Martin, director and curator of the The Lunney House Museum, has been
a valuable part of the team as Historical Consultant. His contributions have reached far beyond that. We are very pleased with this team for their technical and entrepreneurial contributions.”
[NOTE: The business has new owners and they have replaced the site.]

“PAR Electronics, Inc. already had a basic site in place when Doug was brought in  to straighten out a myriad of browser incompatibility issues that had arisen from the initial design done with Dreamweaver. Doug's ability to dig in and write pages directly with HTML soon had the site cleaned up. Doug continues to do additional work to grow the site. Here again, Doug's work is exceptional with a minimum of intervention required by me. I have tried a number of different developers, and found none close to Doug's knowledge and expertise. PAR highly recommends him.”

“During your time on my staff as Division Computer Services Officer you completely overhauled our web site which had languished for a couple of years. You took on the project enthusiastically and created a much simpler, user friendly web site that met our expectations completely. Your thorough knowledge was easy to recognize as you carefully explained all that you repaired and rebuilt. Not being a web expert myself, I felt completely informed as to your work and the end result.” [Since 2008 it has had some design changes by the current webmaster.]
John C. diPretoro, IP Division Captain, USCG Auxiliary
“The Patterson team has been a pleasure to work with. We have had an ongoing relationship with them for many years as top selling Brokers for our NC development: Whitewater Ridge. They are equally professional in their web design business. Their team concept if refreshing. Doug and Carol's creativity and talent in the website development field is exceptional [site created in 2010]. They are great on follow-up and can be trusted to help you take your business to a new level with their entrepreneurial expertise.”

“United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla Category Best of the Web - Runner-Up is hereby granted to [Doug Patterson, webmaster/designer for] Flotilla 25, 7th District. September 23, 2004.” [This was a National competition. We have redesigned the site since then. See Flotilla 25 below.]
M. S. McBain, Department Chief, Information &
Communication Services, USCG Auxiliary
“Douglas R. Patterson performed exceptionally meritorious service during the period of 01 January, 2007 thru 31 December, 2011 while serving as Flotilla Staff Officer - Communication Services, Flotilla 25.
“Upon taking office Mr Patterson quickly set about re-designing the flotilla's website. Through his expertise he created a more attractive and user friendly website. His efforts of maintaining the website have resulted in more accurate and timely posting of information.
“FSO-CS Patterson's devotion and dedication to duty reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the Coast Guard Auxiliary.”
James R. Merritt, Vice Commander, USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 25
“The Pattersons helped us recover from a bad experience. Our previous webmaster owned our domain name, but would not maintain the site or give us access to it. There was nothing we could do but let it expire; it was the only way we could get rid of him. Doug always leads his new clients through buying their own domain names so this doesn't happen. The Pattersons brought creativity and energy to the project. They are fun, respond quickly to our needs, reasonable in pricing and up-to-date with technology. Their patience and follow-through over the years have been exceptional.” [This site was active over 4 years until September 2011 when the business was sold. The new owners have a different focus for the business, so they replaced the site with a blog.]
