Dr. Cagle is wonderful. I've had shoulder pain on and off for about 1.5 years due to a snowboard fall. Heordered an MRI right away and in under a week I was scheduled for surgery. He does not push you, however, for unnecessary procedures. He allows you to choose your path of treatment, explains everything in easy to understand terms and is absolutely lovely to speak with. His secretary, Sabrina, is also incredible and welcoming. One of the best medical experiences I've had.

This is just initial consult HOWEVER....I was a pretty great OR nurse before my spine got ridiculous so I feel I have a true insight with surgeons especially ortho which eventually became my favorite specialty. Cagle is able to combine friendlyand professional. Additionally, it was very obvious to me the bonafide expertise he has with shoulders. Knowing my history he was kind enough to listen to some of my jabber (nervousness). There was no hmmm uhhh gee. When I was still in the OR we had a line: “gotta like a surgeon with a plan” I plan to follow whatever he advises after my MRI is done. And that says a lot. Coming from me.

It was great, everyone was nice and knowledgeable, even the waiting room was pleasant. I was seen right after arriving on time for my appointment, which might be because I had an end of the day appointment. Dr. Cagle was verynice and answered all of my questions and offered some good solutions for my issues.

Dr Cagle emits confidence and authority in his expertise, I left confident that his diagnose and treatment advise was accurate, to be trusted and follow. The paperwork and administrative, insurance and other bureaucratic paper pushing wasannoying and is shameful for this day and age and a disgrace for our country .

Excellent Visit. Knowledgeable and professional surgeon and team. As a very busy dr myself & after many months of elbow pain and burning, I saw Dr Cagle who examined me and was able to set me up for a same dayMRI which was extremely helpful because I have limited free time. He then did an injection of steroid into my elbow which was quick and easy. The next day the burning sensation was almost entirely gone.. Its great to be back to normal. I am so happy with my results and I will be starting PT soon to maintain. HIghly recommend.

Dr Cagle was fantastic. Since he only focuses on shoulders I felt confident that he knew what he was talking about. He was able to decipher my scans quickly and gave me an honest and unbiased assessment based on the scansand physical exam. He didn't want to rush me into surgery (torn labrum) but if I do go in I know where I'll go. The office was also convenient being in union Sq and his assistant Sabrina was a joy to communicate with. Highly recommend. Thank you Dr Cagle

I found Dr. Cagle to be knowledgeable and friendly. He spent an appropriate amount of time with me including patiently answering questions. However, in spite of filling out Zocdoc forms on line I still had another stack of forms to complete.

Sometimes doctors run late, and Dr. Cagle was very apologetic about getting tied up with whatever caused it. As with my first visit he was friendly, attentive, and addressed all my concerns. I'm in no hurry to see him again :) but I definitely recommend him.
