I recently moved to Arizona to start a new life. I had already started the journey of sobriety so one of the first things I had to to do when I got here was find a new doctor. Luckily I was able to get in to see Dr. Dekker and I am very glad that I found him. I do travel from Chandler to Phoenix but it's worth it. He actually takes time to figure out what is going on and what to do about it. He is very caring and flexible with scheduling which I appreciate!! I definitely recommend him!

If there were more doctors like Dr Dekker I would not mind so much having to see a doctor, this man is absolutely down to earth and genuine and truly wants to help whatever your situation might be. In 48 years I've never had a doctor call and check on me just to make sure I was ok when I didn't make it on time for an appointment, his commitment to his patients is nothing less than amazing to me and I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Dekker is fantastic. He has been extremely understanding, agreeable, and helpful to me. Just an all-around great guy and great doctor. I've heard people complain that the wait time can be a little long sometimes, but its because he takes time to talk to you and see how you're doing. Plus, the wait is worth the service in my opinion and I have no problem with it

I am a 100% disabled veteran suffering from multiple TBIs , Severe PTSD and anxiety. I am also the victim of physical/emotional abuse and domestic violence during my 5 year marriage to a Marine.Most psychiatrists I have seen have been eager to simply write me scripts and send me on my way. He is incredibly caring and one of the few doctors that take time to ensure you understand every aspect of your diagnoses and spends time ensuring that each diagnosis you had previously is accurate!

Dr. Dekker treats myself and my wife and has treated us with care, respect, and thoughtfulness. We have both struggled with doctors for a long time and finally found Dr. Dekker who listened to all of our concerns and was the only doctor that actually found something that worked for us! He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and taken care of and explains treatments and medications. He even let my wife bring her emotional support animal into appointments with her. Definitely recommend!
