Patient Comments (1)

our family has been using Texas Eye Institute for years. I had a relative loosing his sight to diabetes with a sudden hemorrhage inside both eyes, making him virtually blind. I convinced him to go see Dr. Decker.... The staff were quick to get him in to see Dr. Decker. It was a scary situation....more
