I was there as a first time patient. After waiting for 2 hours he spent 7 minutes with me. He was arrogant, didn't ask any questions about my symptoms, and didn't let me ask any questions. The few questions I did ask her just ignored me and didn't answer. My impression is that her is only interested in booking surgery. If you are not an immediate surgical candidate then he wants to get out of the room. He seems to be in it for the money and no interest in actually helping patients. I would stay away.

Terrible Customer Service

Never met with the doctor yet the PA who was emotional, young woman should not be seeing patients nor giving medical advice. Have called several times for my x-rays - still do not have them. UCI also requested the x-rays, they did not send them. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS DOCTOR!

Keeps Patients Waiting

Checked in 15 mins early, we waited 1.5hrs. Receptionist said he's always behind. Unbelievable...Do not go to this guy. I'm going to get another referral.

Total lack of regard

I arrived ten minutes early for my scheduled appointment. The line to check in was all the way down the stairs that should have been an indication to turn around and run! I checked in, I had filled in all the paper work which I had downloaded previously and sat down and proceeded to wait and wait. After I had been waiting forclose to an hour I asked the receptionist how much longer was the wait to which she responded that there were 6 patients ahead of me, which meant that if he spent 15 minutes with each patient I would be waiting for at least another hour and half before I got seen which meant I would have been waiting 2 1/2 hours! She said not necessarily that long because Dr Deckey may only spend 2 minutes with some patients. That horrified me more! I asked to see the office manager, who very calmly informed me that this is how Dr Deckey runs his practice and if I didn't like it I could leave! Which I promptly did! I most certainly do not want a Dr that has so little regard for my well being and shows such little respect for me.

I want to give a big thank you to Dr Deckey and staff for your response to my pleas for help. My spine surgery was Dec 12th. On the 21st I was struck with severe stomach and bowel pain. I seriously thought I was going to die. I had no idea what the problem was and turned to Dr Deckey for help. PA Dan responded to our call for help by sending me to the St Joseph ER and calling ahead to aid in a smooth admission. As it turned out my problem was/is diverticulitis and blocked bowels. Dr Decky ans staff responded to St Joseph twice to see me anyway and wished me a quick release from the hospital and a Merry Christmas. These actions gave me great peace of mind. Thank you Dr Deckey and staff. It meant so much to me.. By the way, my spine surgery was successful thanks to a very skilled surgeon.
