Patient Comments (2)
in Florham Park, NJ |
I had gone to two other doctors before getting to Dr. Decker. He resolved my eye issue, is extremely knowledgeable, competent and his bedside manner was fantastic.
in Livingston, NJ |
Very thorough, warm, and friendly, and dedicated to his patients with a wonderful bedside manner. Takes your entire current medical history into consideration and addresses issues involved. Very important to be honest and upfront with medical history, medications, and over the counter supplements which can interfere with proper eye care. Dr. Decker's expertise has saved my eyesight numerous times. Why would you go anywhere else?
