What Patients are Saying About Dr. James D. Cable, MD

  • Dr. Cable was concerned for me, and he helped me fight worker’s compensation for treatment. The CoPE program changed me...I still have some pain, but I have ways to fight it more effectively now. I’m active in my children’s lives, all their activities, and I started a peer support group for patients suffering from chronic back pain. Now I find joy in every day, because I know I have something to live for, not just something to live with.
