I’ve been trying to make a simple appointment with Dr. Cage for two weeks now. The first week, I complained about how I was not able to make an appointment due to an unknowledgeable staff member telling me I would be called back. However, I was not ever called back. I complained the following week. Now, as of June, when I call, I ask for extension 1211, the appointment staff number. The receptionist “Barbara” keeps connecting me to the general office voice mail. I leave messages and never here back, again! Barbara is the person I complained too first and now she recognizes my voice when I call to attempt making an appointment. I give up on doctor Cage. She may be worth the trouble but my health cannot deal with this type childish behavior, it’s to upsetting to me. Her staff seems very vindictive toward complaints and now I feel targeted by her staff simply because I complained.

Dr. Cage is a wonderful doctor! She’s knowledgeable, compassionate and even funny! I fell and broke my arm nine days before leaving for a cruise to the Caribbean and they got me in on the same day and scheduled my surgery the next morning! She even made a painful experience fun!! I’d highly recommend this office to anyone who breaks their arm, wrist or hand!!

Was in a serious car accident which required extensive and complicated repair to the wrist. Dr. Cage and her staff have been very professional and friendly. The pre operation process was thorough. Dr. Cage is very thoughtful and personable. Though there were several patients the wait was reasonably short and Dr. Cage and her staff has been attentive throughout the process. Never giving me the feeling of being rushed. She was very thorough in what expect with the entire procedure. Excellent.

Very knowledgable, patient and truly an advocate for her clients. I underwent hand surgery for a tendon, and continue under her care for hand and digit issues. I highly recommend Dr. Cage.
