James P. Decock, MD

Dr. DeCock grew up in the Midwest where he completed his bachelor of arts in chemistry at Northwestern University and medical school in his home state of Kansas at the University of Kansas. A residency and internship in family medicine at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center's Family Medicine Residency program brought him to California, where he discovered the beauty of the state and its people. Board certified in family medicine, Dr. DeCock believes in establishing relationships with his patients throughout the course of their lives, not just when they have a particular medical need.
