Dr Deckert is a very caring individual who cares about her patients and sees them as people and not just symptom, I had an issue over the weekend and was concerned about an infection. Dr Deckert took the time to see me on a Sunday afternoon. She examined me and assured me that it was OK.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Deckert
God led me to you, Dr. Deckert! I was newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia at the time and was suffering on a daily basis. I prayed for a doctor that truly understood what I was going through and would be able to help me. I went to Sprouts for supplement help and one of the women working there asked me if I needed help. I practically cried on her shoulder! She told me she knew of a doctor… See more
First of all, she is a close friend to whom I can tell everything about my life. She is smart, personable and caring. She is on the cutting edge of integrative developments. By the 12th ozone treatment, a non-hodgkins lymphoma node behind my knee shrunk from a quarter size to a pea size which is phenomenal!!
Having her cell phone number is very comforting as I know I can contact her… See more

Dr. Deckert has been my physician for 12 plus years. She has been exceptional and extremely knowledgeable with my condition. I truly do not know what would have happen to me had she not come into my life. I know it's ridiculous but, I have no idea what I am going to do when she retires.
My blood pressure was out of control and anxiety causing it to become worse. She not only found the correct medications, but calmed the anxiety without drugs. My husband and I have had to contact her when she was not in the office and she was always readily available. We both feel we have made a good decision in choosing MDVIP and Dr. Deckert. She has been a blessing in our lives. Adrienne… See more
I have been struggling for month with thyroid and adrenal fatigue. Dr Deckert could not understand why my body was not healing on it's own. She had me take 23and me and met with a genetic specialist to discover I have several gene mutations that are causing the problem. We were thrilled to find this new information.
In a word, or two, Stress reduction. I feel very confident that my health care is being monitored by someone who knows me and my specific issues and is readily available (emphasis on readily) to help me resolve unforeseen issues.
I was very frustrated prior to becoming an MDVIP patient with Dr. Deckert with the insurance/paperwork, approval/referral, wait/delay system of our current… See more
I have been with Dr Deckert since she was located in Alpine. I was so happy to find a doctor that would listen to my lists of concerns. As time went on I would wait in the office sometimes over 1 hour but it was ok with me because this was the kind of medical help I needed. I never wanted to see other Doctor after her. She understood my wanted to be more on the preventive side. She, even… See more
