Incorrect diagnosis

Dr. Deckter failed to share that the last test failed to show results as the test didn't work (camera only recorded a couple of minutes versus 8 hrs as it should) - said see ya in 3 months --- within 3 weeks new Gastro Dr. has diagnosed the issue with an EGD and starts treatment immediately !

Dr. Deckter is very knowledgable in his profession. Easy to talk to and to understand. The staff was very nice and helpful. My visit was spent in a timely manor and I didn't feel as if I were rushed in and out without an understanding of the problem I was seen for.
