Worst eye exam I ever had. After waiting almost 45 minutes, he spent literally 10 minutes, if that much, on my exam. I now have to make an appointment to go elsewhere to get a proper eye exam. I am very disappointed especially since I see other reviews that are good. I am not sure what went on the day I was there but I will never go back to this practice.

Hardly 5 minutes with the doctor, who run from patient to patient. Did not want to consider any concerns. Optometrists provided more comprehensive exam.

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.

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?
