I went to see Dr. Deckey almost a year ago for a second opinion. I was working with another doctor and I was not happy with the level of attention they were putting toward getting me healed. Dr. Deckey performed a replacement/fuse surgery on my L5/S1 in Feb. 2020. It has not been 8 months since surgery and I feel great. I am amazed by the mobility that I have as well as being 100% pain free. I would recommend Dr. Deckey to my closets friends and family.

Dr. Decky has been a really great Surgeon, He has performed 2 Cervical Surgeries on me and did a really great job. He love doing Surgeries and that is one of the reasons he is so good. After surgery , not so much, I had Surgery a year ago April, and I called his office and left messages 3 time today, and used the Patient Portal Account to send an email to him, his office ask me to contact another spine doctor as ask him to give me a prescription. I would not have minded having another doctor take over the prescriptions if I had been ask, but I was not ask. I have an appointment scheduled with his assistant next week, so you can see they are willing to take my money for appointment, but not providing after Surgery Support.

Dr. Deckey performed a lumbar fusion on me in January of 2017. My chronic pain is gone and I'm able to do almost everything. I'm 68 so I think it's a miracle. Very grateful for him and his associates.

Do not go to this doctor or this office. No care for patients and impossible to get a call back from ANYONE there. Waited 1.5 hrs to see doctor only to see PA. He pulled up someone else's xrays (scary) which I had to correct him on. Sent down hall for more xrays. Finally see Dr. Decky after another 45 minutes who didn't want to give me the time of day to see what was wrong or how I was feeling, exam me or anything. Left with a MRI referral I needed to question. 3 calls, no answers!

Dr. Deckey began seeing me in 2004. He worked with me four years before my first 5-level cervical fusion. A few years later a 5-level lumber fusion was required, followed up with a 5-level fusion above the lumber. Dr. Deckey has kept me up-right and walking. He has treated me with respect, compassion, and remarkable skill. His staff, from the front office, to the PA, and Carmen have been nothing but excellent for these years. I'm suffering again, I look forward to seeing the Dr. in 3/2018

Dr. Deckey is the best spine surgeon in Orange County. You are in excellent hands. It is normal to be apprehensive, but my operation solved 10 years of back pain. If he says surgery will help you, believe him and trust him and his staff! They are all great people. I am 100% happy with the procedure.

started my research I believe I found the best at his profession in Orange county as well as the surrounding counties. That was Dr. Jeffery Deckey. He & his staff opened me up 4 times in 5 years. twice in 2013 and twice in 2017. I feel if I had gone to any other surgeon I would most likely be dead. Praise is difficult for me but when it is truly disserved it comes easy. Jeff, I can't say enough. I feel I've come to know you, Dan and Dan's counterpart well and you are all good people. God Bless!

Excellent surgeon. Spine Specialist. Only performs surgeries if he feels he can provide a good outcome. Had surgery on lower spine last year with a great outcome now need to see him for my neck. Not excited about this but an excellent surgeon that I can highly recommend.

Arrived for my appointment to find he was not in and his staff didn't bother to call and tell me. They schedule me the next day. Everyone was doubled booked. It took 4 hours past my appointment to see me. He spent less than 2 minutes with me. His staff is inconsiderate of patients time. His office is chaotic and I can't imaging waiting to see him for HOURS after surgery. Maybe he is a good surgeon but how he runs his office is awful.

I have to wait for more that three hours each time I go there, only to see his assistant for five minute. I dont want to say Dr. Dickey is not a good doctor, simply he doesn't have time to see one more patient.

The first time i had to wait 2 hours to see Deckey then he comes in and I only get 5 minutes with him. Second time, I waited 3 hours to see him then he leaves the office without seeing me & notifying me. He is unprofessional and incompetent. Go somewhere else.
