About Dr. Paul

Philosophy of care

When I was young, I had a gastrointestinal condition that caused me to be hospitalized many times. As a result, I know the fear a young person feels when they’re dealing with a health problem. I share my story with patients, let them know I understand what they’re feeling, educate them and help them realize things will get better.

Why I entered medicine

I’ve always been fascinated by science. As a boy, I would spend a lot of time looking at things under my toy microscope. My mom was a nurse, and she inspired me to enter a career in health care. She instilled in me the desire to care for people, which remains near and dear to me.

Community involvement

I volunteer with a local youth group and conduct preventive screenings at local health fairs.

Personal interests

I enjoy hiking and mountain biking. Doing anything with my wife, Kathleen, and four children is fun.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
