100% Satisfaction!

Decker Integrated Orthotics and Prosthetics is happy to announce that we received 100% for patient satisfaction for the month of April 2014.  This is based on surveys that are sent to patients both two weeks and 60 days after a device is delivered.  

We take a lot of pride in our patients being happy and take the feedback we receive to make our care even better.  Our goal is to set the standard for orthotic and prosthetic care for Kansas City, and surrounding communities we serve.
