Running on "patched" tires

I have a set of 19s that I'm going to mount on my rims.

They are the Bridgestone turanza serenity 245/45/19.

Anyways. 3 of them have a patch from the inside. One even has 2 patches ( pretty spread apart ) But overall it looks good and the patches were done at a tire shop.

I'll have them mounted next week but overall, are patched tires safe?

it should be fine if the patches were put on correctly. double check if there's any leaks coming out of them once the tire pressure is set
Too many styles, so little cars.

It gets sketchy if the patches are too close to the sidewall.

the speed rating is void once a repair has been done too.
