My husband needed to find a new Primary care Dr. And after having several other failed attempts with other Doctors whojust seemed to not care or address any of my husband's concerns , we finally found a true and dedicated honest Dr. In Carl Knopke. He was amazing with my husband and truly is in his profession because he wants to help people feel better and have a better life. He is absolutely a God Send and I can't stop telling everyone how great he and his wonderful staff are. I wish we would have found him sooner. he is the definition of what a perfect Primary care Dr. Should be.

Dr. Knopke is absolutely wonderful! I’ve been a patient in his clinic for a couple or of months, his staff (especially Aurora) truly and honestly care about your wellbeing. I am usually seen by his equally amazing PA Maddie, this was my first time meeting Dr. K. He was so incredible, he took the time and LISTENED to my concerns, although the office was very busy, I not once felt rushed. He presented me with a few choices and options on how to deal with my health concerns and throughly explained and discussed each option. I highly recommend him and his office for ALL your healthcare needs.

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.

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.
