Dr Dechter is the most uncaring doctor I have ever been too. I went into each appointment being honest, always trying to take the best care of myself. Being a small business owner means everything too me. He could careless, never even too the time to get to know me or my situation. Now am facing loosing my business and everything I built and he told me to my face he didn't care. What happen to doctors caring about their patient and helping them get better to be able to have a quility of life.

His staff made a major error and because of it my wife is the one paying the conciquences and he will not see my wife any more. He is closed minded and can not admit that the screw up was on his staffs behalf. I guess he figures that it's okay to let a 63 year old woman suffer as long as he can protect the wrong that was done to my wife. Since when is making a patient suffer the right thing to do? Since when Is a doctor not human? Maybe an attorney can figure that one out.

I've been a patient of Dr. Dechter's for four months, and I can't speak highly enough of the care I have received from him and his staff. He is extremely knowledgeable, is willing to answer all my questions, and has bent over backwards to make sure I had all my procedures completed ahead of my surgery date. He and his staff have come in early and stayed late on my behalf, and they have gone above and beyond a level of care that is missing in many medical clinics. I would gladly recommend him.

Dr Dechter was patient, kind and very knowledgeable. He listened to my concerns and helped me to come up with a treatment plan that worked well for myself, my family and my employer. Dr Dechter's staff is always prompt and courteous anytime that I have needed to call in with questions or concerns. I have undergone a few procedures that were completed by Dr Dechter and every one of them has given me the ability to live my life with less pain. I highly recommend Dr Dechter to any and ALL!!
