My Mom had Alzheimer's and Dr.Decker prescribed an anti-psychotic, with black box warning against use for dementia patients. This was to"help" her with anxiety and sleep (my mother was never combative except in a few rare moments over months). She was barely able to walk from this med and became more confused than ever. He switched to another anti-psychotic w black box warning she lost her mobility/more confused and died of bed sores shortly after.

Dr. Decker has treated myself as well as 2 other members of my family for epilepsy for a number of years and has been great. He might not be the most outgoing but he is smart and caring. He takes into consideration what I need mentally, but doesn't give into what I want if it's not safe for me. He was also amazing when I was without insurance for a year!

I've been seeing Dr. Decker for many years for my migraines and his treatment has made such a huge change in my quality of life. He listens to everything I have to say and takes me seriously.

We are most interested in information not bedside manner. However, this Dr. had neither. The Dr. came in, did not answer questions and did not have follow up appointment as promised afterwards. This is after waiting several months for an appt because he had come highly recommended. He prescribed meds without asking about other drugs. A good pharmacist told us it would not be a wise choice to take this.
