About Dr. Cable

Philosophy of care

Medicine is a shared responsibility, a combined effort between you and me. As a physician I must have the requisite technical skills, knowledge base and communication skills. Those qualities and your commitment to a full recovery provide for the best results.

Why I entered medicine

Medicine allows me to serve others in a meaningful way. Orthopedic surgery is mentally and physically challenging, but also rewarding, because most musculoskeletal conditions can be treated in ways that significantly improve the patient's quality of life.

Community involvement

During 15 years of practice, I have volunteered at multiple free clinics in underserved areas and find the work extremely rewarding. Most of these patients are in desperate need of orthopedic care and very appreciative.

Personal interests

"Downtime" is often spent with my three children, engaging in outdoor activities such as tennis, hiking, skiing, or physical exercise of some kind. When feeling particularly ambitious, I can be found practicing guitar.

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.
