Dr. Lawrence V. Deck III is the reason my 91 year old mother is still alive and enjoying quality of life.

Dr. Lawrence V. Deck III is the reason my 91 year old mother is still alive and enjoying quality of life. She has been on hospice for three years with end stage heart failure. She suffers from a-fib, COPD, and a scary rapid propensity for pneumonia. Dr. Deck, in conjunction with hospice, stay on top of her symptoms and procure the appropriate antibiotics within a couple of hours after she begins to display the slightest symptoms of pending pneumonia or bronchitis. Dr. Deck moved heaven and earth to make sure that she receives two breathing treatments a day. This has been a spectacular preventive measure. My mother hasn't had to be hospitalized in over a year! He visits her at least once a month and sometimes more often to perform the otherwise extinct house call. He truly cares about my mother and interacts with her in a professional and most congenial manner. Our family is very grateful that we have Dr. Deck and that MDVIP provides a conduit for him to practice medicine the way it was intended to be practiced.
