Patient Comments (1)
in River Ridge, LA |
On September 22, 2016, I had inguinal hernia surgery. Based on very high recommendations, by several physicians, I chose Dr. Decorte to perform that surgery. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Following the surgery, I questioned Dr. Decorte at to why I did not experience any pain following the surgery, I quote, "I'd like to think it because of the surgeon, I treat tissue very gently." From my experience, I rate Dr.Decorte as a great doctor and surgeon.
