Dr Cagle is a fantastic surgeon. His bedside manner is excellent, he is caring, and really goes the extra mile to make you feel at ease. As a physician myself, I would both refer patients to him and recommend him to family and friends.

Very trustworthy and professional. I would highly recommend.

I had nerve pain in my lower arm. X-Ray staff said I would be scheduled for elbow surgery. I explained the nerve issue. The nurse corrected me saying I would have surgery, sarcastically asking who I thought was in charge of my care. I answered that my wife and I were in charge. She was angry & we asked to see the Dr. After waiting 30 minutes, a second nurse was equally uncooperative. She refused to let us see Cagle. He gave us dirty looks in the hall as we left. No apology, no explanation.
Tim, I am sincerely sorry to hear you had such a bad experience. My goal is always excellence in patient care, and I truly care about my patients having an excellent experience. It sounds like you did not actually get to see me. Are you sure you were scheduled with me. I was no longer practicing in Springfield, IL in July 2016. I hope you were able to take care of your nerve pain, and I wish you a full recovery. Paul Cagle
