Dr. Decker's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Decker "Dr. Jennifer Decker joined Dr. David Book in CSHP's Otolaryngology department at 1625 Medical Center Point in August 2013 and is an excellent addition to the team!

She is interested in trans-nasal skull base surgery, difficult sinus cases, and both cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery -especially rhinoplasty. When she's not working, Dr. Decker enjoys horseback riding, hiking in the mountains, and cooking - though she has not yet learned to bake at high altitudes!"
