    Dr. Dechet is great. It is rare to find a female orthopedic surgeon and she was really helpful.

    Experienced on Apr 15, 2020

    the doctor took much time and explanation and show concern for my pain. she gave a referral to an appropriate doctor. I didn't like the way my mental health history became part of the discussion of my physical pain. do not recall how this was initially breached. she did provide opportunity for my mental health provider to contact her.

    Dr. Dechet's Sense of urgency and concern for my welfare became immediately apparent. She methodically, precisely followed an exacting routine to diagnosis, counsel, and prioritize each factor while carefully explaining her findings and recommendations. Without her meticulous attention to detail, I do not think I would have received proper care or known how to proceed and my life may have been in jeopardy.
