    Dr. Dechet was delightful, thorough and kind. She ordered x-rays and explained them carefully to me, and gave recommendation on how to treat my fractures & the best treatment options.

    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 .

    I'm sure Dr. Dechet is very skilled in her craft, but as a teacher I am also needed for my skilled craft in the classroom as my principal and 30 students depends on me to be there. When I arrived EARLY, I asked the receptionist if there was others ahead of me, he said, "Yes, one and she is with that patient. You will be seen on time which was at 8 a.m. Great I knew 15 mins. was about the approximate patient time. I had to be at work at 8:40 in WVC. Everything would be great. I was taken to the room at 8:05 - still not bad, but I sat there until 8:30. I was walking out of room - my job is in jeopardy. I was leaving as I came in - still in pain - We met at the door/she told me she could see me quickly and I needed a shot I undressed in her presence, got the shot, dressed, left and arrived at my school 10 minutes late. Even with a phone call to my principal, there aren't extra people you can just drag in to a classroom or leave 30 students sitting alone.

    I'm satisfied by the care from my doctor but I don't like that if I'm seen to hard a procedure, I can't not ask about a past procedure that she did on me as a surgeon.

    This visit was OK overall.

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

    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.
