Dr. Decook literally saved & improved the quality of my life. My hip replacement (done by another doctor) had become severely infected. I consulted 2 doctors prior to being referred to Dr Decook. One wouldn't touch it & the other was considering amputation. Thanks to Dr. Decook this 45 year old woman can walk and care for my son. Thank God for Dr Decook.

Excellent staff for follow up and excellent result on my total knee replacement. Process from check in to check out was flawless including post op and short stay ortho floor. The Dr even came to see me after surgery and walked with me. He is a very disciplined clinician and also strives for excellent outcomes. I recommend him highly.

Good surgeon, but I just waited nearly an hour for a follow-appointment. If you use this doctor, adjust your expectations accordingly.
