I can not say a lot right now . Dr Decook rushes does not listen and if you verbalize anything negative in his presence... any concerns any questions.. if you show any emotions other than proclaiming how wonderful the world is ... he interrupts and gets visibly upset. He rushes not only at his office but also in surgery .. I better hush now- I’m just trying to recover from my visit and surgery .. it’s not going well

At age 70 having my first surgery was scary. When my hip pain became unmanageable a dear friend told me about Dr. DeCook. After my first appointment with Dr. DeCook and his exceptional team I was confident I had made the right decision. I believe Dr. DeCook’s Philosophy of exercise before and after surgery (using a great app called FORCE) and having a great professional and dedicated team resulted in my complete recovery. I was home 5 hours after surgery and walking (with walker the next day). I highly recommend Dr. DeCook and his team!

I was very pleased with the surgery and recovery. I was a little disappointed that for my six week check up I did not get to see Dr. Decook for a couple of minutes for his assessment like he did for my previous surgery.

This program sets you up for success and prepares you so well that it is almost impossible to fail. Love how the program prepares you in advance and how in touch you are with the office afterwards. The Force program that is used for knee replacements allows me to easily ask a question and receive quick responses from the office. I know other people who have had knee replacement with other physicians and were offered nothing to compare to this program. I takes all the fear out of having my other knee replaced now. Dr. DeCook knows his stuff!

I can't say enough about how pleased I was with the entire process of my hip replacement. I dealt with the pain for about 12 months before going to Dr. DeCook. The process was easy & professional from beginning to end, even as we went through the COVID Pandemic. On the day of my surgery I arrived and left about 4.5 hours later. I was walking with no aides (walker or cane) and minimal pain the next day. Played BBall 4 weeks later and now (7 weeks later) am playing 18 holes 3 times a week. The process, the people and the results far exceeded my expectations. A special call out to Dee and the great people that worked with me with the FORCE application (pre & post operation exercise regime). I attribute a lot of the success to the FORCE team and of course Dr. DeCook!! Just wish I had done it sooner!!!

Dr. DeCook and all of his staff, Surgical Center group and Therapy group are amazing, all fears, concerns and questions were fully explained and quickly. The therapy through 'Force' was very successful, recovery was quick with minimal pain. Freedom to exercise on my schedule and frequency was amazing. I would highly recommend this group to anyone who is needing an orthopedic service. In less than 1 month after surgery I was mostly back to normal schedule with very few restrictions, just very cautious and aware of my activity, and almost NO pain. Thank you Dr. DeCook!!!!

The whole experience, from pre-surgery preparation on Force, through surgery day staff work, the surgery itself, and post-surgery rehab through the Force app was extremely professional and effective! Could not be more pleased with the outcome!

I highly recommend Dr. Decook. His team, the facility he uses, and his practices are the best. The Force was there for me for any questions or concerns with immediate responses. I will only go to Dr. Decook and his team for any similar procedure in the future.

This has been the greatest experience I could have asked for. I experienced pain for over ten years and within two days I was starting to walk on my own! His entire team was five start and I wouldn’t go elsewhere. We drove almost two hours for his care and it was worth it!

Have had two hip replacements from Dr. Decook in 2020. Did my research and looked no further. Fantastic surgeon and his whole support staff is the best I've ever seen. His nursing and physical therapy is great. Any question you have is answered quickly. Couldn't recommend more highly.

I have had both hips replaced by Dr. Decook and I feel great. I walk 3 to 5 miles a day. I’m almost 70 and people much younger than I, have a hard time staying up with me.

There are orthopedic surgeons…and then there’s Dr. Charles Decook. My first hip replacement occurred October 31st and on March 12th I had my second hip replacement performed by him. What can I say besides this Dr. is nothing short of awesome! The pain in both hips is GONE; I’m up and walking the next day feeling like I have my life back. I’ve had now 11 surgeries in my life some good and some experiences and some not so good…however, I can honestly say this team cares about their patients. You can “feel” the caring displayed from the front desk, to the x-ray tech, to the nurses and staff to Dr. Decook himself. They are first-class and simply want the best care for you. I give them the very best rating possible. Five stars are not enough, I think more like 10! I came to him on a second option, and so glad I did. If you are considering hip or knee replacement please make an appointment, I think you will be pleasantly pleased.

My husband had a total knee replacement in October of 2018. He repeatedly told Dr. DeCook something was wrong. Dr. DeCook repeatedly maintained 'these things take time.' After 1 year and 8 months the replaced knee now hurts more than my husband's bad knee. With a car you can bring it back to the mechanic when the mechanic installs a faulty part or installs it improperly. My husband is worse off now than he was before and we are told we have no recourse!

Dr. DeCook is a superstar! I went to him from another state because of his reputation, and all the great things I heard about him are absolutely true. In addition to being a pioneering surgeon in the field of joint replacement, he is respectful, reassuring and thorough. His staff are all top-notch, and his offices are cheerful and comfortable. I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone who needs a joint replacement!
