About Dr. Sibley

Philosophy of care

I teach patients about their disease and the most up-to-date treatment options, including what tends to work and not work. I help them improve and reach an outcome they are happy with through mutual decision-making. We weigh the risks and benefits of various options and choose a plan we are both happy with. I treat all patients like family but also use the scientific orthopedic literature to guide the decision-making process.

Why I entered medicine

I am the son of an ophthalmologist and a nurse, so I was always exposed to medicine. I saw my parents helping people and was inspired to pursue it as a career. It's very rewarding to help people get their function, motion and quality of life back. As a collegiate baseball player, I was drawn to the anatomy and function of the upper extremity, and how to rehab and treat its common injuries.

Community involvement

I have worked with local high school students interested in medicine and coached baseball in the South Parkland Youth Association. I am also the team hand surgeon for many local high school and college sports teams as well as the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. 

Personal interests

Professionally, I enjoy teaching medical students and residents in the office and the OR. Personally, I like to go to the gym and enjoy spending time with my wife and four children. I am often a part-time chauffeur for my kids' activities, as well as a T-ball coach.

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.
