    The medical/assistant nurse was the reason I got in to see that doctor the same day I called. She was very concerned about my care and the fact that I had a painful fracture. I want to make sure she gets kudos for caring for the patient

    Dr. Dechet was wonderful. I came to the clinic to get information/ help with my carpal tunnel issue. After telling Dr. Dechet about the pain I was also having in my shoulder, she sent me to the x-ray to get pictures of my shoulder. She then gave me a shot in my shoulder to help with the inflammation .
