Dr. Dekker is awesome. I have been a patient of his for over 25 years. His office staff is very pleasant to deal with. He is thorough and invites questions. He is a good listener. I never feel rushed. I have seen PA's in his office for cold/flu symptoms and they were pleasant as well. I did not feel slighted, they were knowledgeable and thorough. Anytime I have call his office with a concern, he has always called back.

Been a patient of Dr. Dekker for about 30 years and I'm still around so I guess he's OK. Dr. Dekker is thorough and patient. He's always had a solution or made a good referral for me. Also has an efficient staff for support.

I am a new patient of Dr. Dekker. It was a delightful experience. He is very caring and personable, and my physical exam was comprehensive, thorough, and comfortable. Paul Dekker reminds me of all of the things I've liked in the best physicians I've worked with over the years. I couldn't recommend him more highly.
