I had emergency gall bladder surgery while on vacation in Tyson's Corner, VA. Dr .Dekker was my surgeon and he was exceptional in every way. He was extremely competent and personable. I am also a physician and I know a great doctor when I see one.

He doesn’t listen to patient concerns or take the time to explain his findings. Had I been less proactive in my...Read More
