"Dr. Dekis was kind and sweet to my daughter, and very transparent with me so I was able to get a better understanding of the injury that my daughter had. I really appreciate all her help."
"Dr. Dekis is great! She’s very caring and understanding with my child. Thank you!"
"Dr. Dekis was very responsive to our needs. She got us in that day to see our child and stayed late for the appointment, explaining everything clearly. We were very impressed by her."
I am motivated by the ability to intervene in diseases early before they have a chance to cause problems later in life. Also, let’s be honest, working with kids is just the best! My added hip preservation training enables me to evaluate teens and young adults for hip problems before osteoarthritis sets in as well.
