About Dr. Combs

Philosophy of care

I consider myself an educator. It’s my responsibility to educate patients about the medical problem they’re facing. It’s also my responsibility to educate people about how to prevent medical conditions and remain healthy.

Why I entered medicine

When I was 12 years old, my grandmother slipped on the ice on Thanksgiving and broke her hip. The family doctor came to the house, cared for her and made arrangements for her to have hip surgery. After surgery, her doctor called to tell us that she had a heart attack and passed away. That’s when I said to myself, “If I could do something to prevent another family from receiving a phone call like that, I will have done something with my life.”

Personal interests

I enjoy the outdoors – hiking, camping and canoeing.

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.
