We sincerely appreciate the trust you have shown in allowing David H. Decker, M.D. to provide for you or your child’s psychiatric needs. At this time, we are notifying you that due to Dr. Decker’s emergent health issues and his resulting immediate medical needs, he is unable to take patient appointments effective June 11, 2018 and must terminate his psychiatric medical practice at this time. Dr. Decker is currently uncertain as to when or if he may be able to resume treating patients.

We have made arrangements for the SIU Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department to accept Dr. Decker’s current patients who had appointments the weeks of June 11, 2018 to June 15, 2018 and June 18, 2018 to June 22, 2018 and patients who have appointments scheduled from June 25, 2018 through July 20, 2018. You may contact Candace with SIU Child Psychiatric Department at (217) 545-6900 to schedule an appointment. If you have emergency needs, we recommend you call the Emergency Departments at Memorial Hospital at (217) 788-3030 or St. John’s Hospital at (217) 544-6464. If you have an appointment scheduled after July 20, 2018, at this time we recommend that you arrange for psychiatric care with another provider. To assist you in this choice, you may contact your pediatrician, another provider in your network, or contact SIU at the number above.

Should you want a copy of your or your child’s medical records, please have your new provider contact FPS by July 20, 2018. The Family Psychiatric Services, L.L.C. (FPS) office will be open on Monday, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for the provider to make such request. You may also mail the attached authorization form to David H.
