Testimonials

  • "Wow! My eyes are full of choking water. Thank you so much and I want to thank everybody for listening. Wow, Dr. Pat may I share a sentiment with you? Before we began I'd like to share a sentiment. You remember there's a show with Bob Barker "The Price is Right"? And where someone's name would get called and suddenly it would become a Pentecostal church where somebody receives the holy ghost and experiences a surge spontaneous burst of joy and you can just see all over their face. In that moment, what that sentiment feels like it's like, "Reverend Thabiti you're the next guest on The Dr. Pat Show!" and that's how I feel right now Dr. Pat. I want to thank to thank everybody for listening and I want the whole world to know Dr. Pat that I just love you so much. I just love you. I just think that I'm speechless."
    Rev. Thabiti

  • "Thoughts of Dr. Pat and my interview experience include, Warm, gracious, so much fun, filled with wisdom, asked great questions, enabled me to share my research regarding Intuition, Consciousness, Healing and the Power of Love with her listeners, comfortable, genuine, caring, probably one of the most engaging hosts who has ever interviewed me, delightful and an amazing psychologist who really "gets" people. I was honored to be asked by Dr. Pat to share the hour with her an entertaining and enlightening hour that whizzed by, leaving us both wanting more time to talk. How fortunate Dr. Pat's listeners are to have a host who comes from love and, as a psychologist, truly honors their needs."

  • "Being on this show helped me so much to just feel that what I needed to and what I share with the world is important. And to you, Dr. Pat, as a supporter, your excitement and energy, your work really helped to put the word out and basically made my work global. She helped me to really be known all the way to India, all the way to Australia and work with people all over the world. I really contribute a lot to what we have been doing now for years together on this show and I just want to thank you for really inviting me to be a part of this. And I want to thank myself for making this choice. I’m certainly happy even though at the beginning, it scared me; it was exactly the right thing for me to do."
    Dr. Friedemann Schaub
