If you are a parent who cares enough to see a great doctor for childhood ADHD, please consider Dr. Decker. Come with documentation. Be ready to listen and learn, he is very good. His bedside manner is not the best, but we have grown to like his presence in my child's life.

Please do not waste your time with this doctor. He is absolutely terrible. He has not benefitted our child or family in any way and if anything has made the situation much worse. We are now waiting another 3 months to get in with another doctor. The mental health care in Illinois is so bad.
