    Dr. Decker is part of an exclusive club of physicians that can build a rapport with patients within the first couple of meeting them. He takes the time to listen to what is bothering you, performs a thorough examination and then diagnosis your issue. He explains the diagnosis in a manner that you can understand and is open to you asking questions. I've seen him multiple times and I never felt rushed. Outstanding credentials, awesome listener, a true partner in your healthcare. Thanks

    excellent.

    Tells me to schedule surgery then tells me to go to another facility. His little change of heart is going to cost me hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars I don't have bc HMC is where I recieve hospital assistance! He also wasted crucial time sending me to occupational therapy, which didn't work, so I'm left with a severely atrophied hand while I wait to get an appointment at another facility... something I could've done FOUR moths ago, likely with better surgery outcome!
