About Dr. McCabe

Philosophy of care

In the field of epilepsy, just one seizure every 6 months is enough to prevent someone from driving, obtaining employment, or having a family life. Seizures can also lead to disability and death.

I strive to obtain seizure-freedom in all patients, while trying to minimize any side-effects. I promise to get to know you and understand what your main concern is. In return, I ask that you do your best to share all thoughts, concerns, and questions openly with me, and that you strive to make all you appointments, so that I can best serve you.

I will do my best to relieve these symptoms with no harm, with the goal to help you return to your normal lifestyle.

Why I entered medicine

As a child, I was always fascinated by doctors at my appointments. This ultimately led me to pursue the field of medicine. I initially planned on being a family medicine doctor and returning to my small hometown. However, no matter how best we think we have our future planned out, something always comes along that pulls us in another direction.

During my medical school rotations, I found my neurology rotation to be the most interesting, which led me to a neurology residency. While in my neurology training, I had the experience of seeing epilepsy patients being monitored in the hospital. This could take 1-2 weeks, which allowed me to get to know these people.

I was able to feel their frustration of how single events that lasted only 1-5 minutes were enough to control their entire lives. This led me to the field of epilepsy, of which I now focus my full efforts.

Community involvement

I am actively involved with the local Epilepsy Foundation.

Personal interests

I am a fan of many forms of music from Classical to Big Band, Folk, 40s - 90s, Broadway and movie soundtracks, Disney music, and others. I enjoy animation art, especially the original form of animation cels (celluloids) which were used up until the 1990's.

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.
