Verified Patient Reviews
As a person that has a paralyzing fear of going to the doctor, I highly recommend Dr. Knopke. He was thorough, kind, and heard what I had to say. The staff was accomidating and kind as well.
I felt comfortable and he was able to anwer all my question and concerns about the program with a clear and easy understanding!
He was very nice and friendly and he took the time to talk through everything he was very thorough. He made me feel very comfortable even though I was nervous when I came in
He was very thorough. He listened to me and suggested a lot of treatments that could potentially help me. He is exactly what a patient wants in a Dr. The staff was very nice as well.
The dr was very understanding abut my issues
It's very hard to find a doctor that will whole heartedly listen to you let alone actually see you and not have a nurse practitioner sit down with you for your very first visit. I was very please with the way that the staff as well as a doctor treated me I felt as though my concerns were listened to you and the doctor really did care about my overall well-being. Although it was my first time at the doctors office I was seem very quickly which was a very nice surprise. Many doctor's offices over book their patients and have you wait an extremely long time just to be rushed through your visit this was not the case here. I'm excited about the things that the doctor and I discussed and I know that he is going to put me on a better health and wellness plan for my lifestyle.
I was very happy to actually see Dr. Knopke personally. It is rare to have that kind of attention & service. It was a priceless & major decision factor for me before I ultimately committed to the weight loss program he offered.
I first saw Dr. Knopke 2 years ago and he is now my primary care physician. He listens to my concerns and takes time to explain options. I appreciate his attention and trust his advice.
Very nice person that was very informative and answered all questions.
