    Dr. Dechet & her team are exceptional. I would never see another MD for this condition. She is top notch & wonderful!

    Experienced on Feb 21, 2019

    The doctor is very knowledgeable and shows compassion for poor patients. Unlike many doctors she seems to care more about helping people than getting rich.

    Excellent experience every visit.

    Dr. Dechet remembered me & my knee even though it had been more than a year since I'd seen her, and she remembered my situation.

    She was awesome.

    Dr. Dechet is the first provider I have had who uses a "scribe." It's so nice! It helps her and she can give me appropriate attention without having to multi-task with a computer. She's always on time.

    I have referred this provider MANY times to other people. She's great!

    Very friendly Dr. and staff [...]!

    Doc is helpful and easy to talk with.

    Experienced on Sep 25, 2018

    She knows her stuff but offered little care of concern for my caring for myself with the osteoarthritis.

    Experienced on Sep 21, 2018

    Dr. Dechet is respectful, pleasant and immediately likeable. She did not condescend to me about my condition being due in part to my age. This all made it likely that I will consult again with her in the future.

    Dr. Dechet's care was exceptional. She didn't seem like she was in a hurry to get me out of her office (a rare quality in doctors I find these days), and she showed extreme care for my insurance situation as she stepped me through different treatment options. I left the appointment feeling heard, respected, and also very cared for. Dr. Dechet is not just a superb physician. She is a kind human being who knows how to relate to her patients.

    Lately it seem like we need to speed up visit because she is behind on time.

    Experienced on Aug 16, 2018

    The Dr. was very informative and gave me several options that would fit my needs.

    Experienced on May 30, 2018

    Dr. Dechet was excellent. Although she isn't able to do my ankle/foot surgery, she explained in detail the options and recommended another physician who could help me. I was impressed by her explanations and her willingness to spend time with me as a patient even though she was going to refer me to somebody else.

    Computer seemed to not work well. The provider was great. [...]

    Great experience, very caring with our 2 year old son made the casting experience quick & painless for us all!

    Dr. Dechet is what I hope folk all my health care providers. she is professional, compassionate, informative, realistic and was concerned about my entire health. she explained everything to me without any condescension.
