Dr. Joshua Decker, DPM is not only an efficient and knowledgeable Doctor, He is very pleasant, always has a smile for his patients and takes time to listen to concerns. Dr. Josh also has empathy for patients in distress and does his best to offer consolation. I enjoy my visits with him and would recommend him to anyone seeking a doctor in his field.

Friendly guy who knows his stuff. He took my foot care as an urgent case directed to him from another physician. He has since helped me to heal my injury as expediently as possible. While he spends time with you and greets you, it is obvious if he is not treating you, there is a no nonsense approach to off topic talk. If you want someone direct about your situation then this is your doctor. All in all a great doctor and one I happily will refer all my friends and family to.

I had such a great experience at this office! I truly felt that Dr. Josh Decker and the staff cared about me not only as a patient but as if I was a friend. He did an amazing job on my ankle surgery and I am so happy to be getting back to my active life after 10 weeks of healing!

I was referred to Dr. Decker for my daughter's ingrown toenails. The whole office has been wonderful. Dr. Decker spent time explaining the procedure and then ensuring we were aware how to care for her toes after. I've had to call and ask a question. My question was answered fully and immediately. I am very happy with the whole office.

I went in for an initial appointment because I was having some problems with my toe and slight pain on the top of my foot. I went in the exam room - took off my shoes and he looked at my feet for about a minute. I did not even get a chance to tell him what my problems were. Then he got my fee molded for $300 custom orthopedics. My appointment was over in less then 10 minutes. Then I received a Summary of Visit Paper in the mail talking about treatment plans, risks to surgery etc... All false

Performed bunion surgery for me. Turned out great. Would recommend to a friend. Only complaint was that it took 2 months to get my surgery scheduled (I guess that means he's in demand, which probably means he's good).
