Dr. Deacon has cared for our children since birth. Daughter 21 and son 18. We live in Rowlett Texas and drive about 30 miles to see him. He is incredibly kind and compassionate and caring to his patients. He never has rushed us through an appointment and has answered all our questions and concerns. His office staff has always been great. We recommend him for all your children's needs.

Dr. Deacon has been my son's doctor since birth and he is 16 years old now. I just love him, he is very thorough and listens to your concerns and takes the time to explain everything he is doing. He gives plenty of time to give his undivided attention.

My son started seeing Dr. Deacon at 18 months after his previous Dr. retired. I was very impressed with his bed side manor. he spent time with me and answered any questions I had .. My son required a referral for a sonogram and to see a specialist. His office had everything taken care of very quickly. With in hours I was on the phone with the hospital making the appointment. Dr. Deacon called after each apt and was very prompt with the results. I really appreciate his level of professionalism.

I was amazed at the level of care and the compassion from this doctor and his staff. I have never taken my special needs son to any doctor that was as patient and understanding as Dr. Deacon. He was a very kind and loving doctor, not only to my son, but to me as well. He took the time to listen, and had a very gentle approach with my child. I highly recommend this doctor.
