"I have nothing but respect for Dr. Dekle and her professionalism. She’s an incredible diagnostician and listens with caring ears and an empathetic heart.


She’s very attentive to my concerns and offers a customized plan for my many aches and pains.


The staff at Essential Internal Medicine are friendly, helpful and efficient. Plus, they can usually get you in on the same day or the day after. I would recommend Dr. Dekle to anyone looking for optimal healthcare."
