I have a history of Colon Cancer in my family so I have to have a colonoscopy every few years. Dr. Deckter is a no nonsense just get the job done type of guy. He makes me feel very comfortable in an uncomfortable environment. Dr. Deckter at least in my case has called me personally with biopsy results every time I had to have polyp biopsied. I hope he keeps practicing for another 10 years!

I would recommend Dr. Deckter. His style, experience and his treatment plan for a digestive problem were excellent. His approach was refreshing with meal plans and a non Rx plan that has helped me.
