Dr. Knoll was pleasant and reviewed my past records and current test results in the exam room with me. She answered my questions and addressed any issues I brought up. My visit was routine, a full eye exam and was handledpretty efficiently. I was moved from the 'big waiting room' to a 'smaller waiting room' as I proceded from test to test. My appt. was 3:30 I arrived about 10 mins early. I was brought into the back area around 3:45ish and when all was said and done I left about 4:55 pm. The office is clean, the front desk receptionist was pleasant and checked me in quickly. Note: I did fill out all the paper-work online ahead of my appt. to save time at the office through ZocDoc.com. All in all a good experience and Dr. knoll was pleasant, efficient and to the point. I was satisfied and felt good when I left. So yes, I would recommend Dr. Knoll.

Visit was average. She did answer all of my questions about LASIK. Overall, and average appointment. I am used to being fitted for eye glasses during my visit but I am new to this town so that may be different here.

Very busy office but very well run. Dr Knoll was obviously very busy herself, but didn't make me feel rushed. Gabe me a chance to ask any questioned I needed to, and talked to me until I understood everything.

I just didn't leave feeling like she heard what I was saying and just don't feel secure with her diagnosis,She just say what she thought my symptoms should of been instead of listening to the facts i was trying to explain,likei have a rare autoimmune disease,am a new on set diabetic,a new new renal failure patient. in stead- i just just got told that eyes change as we age- Really? what a blow off.

Even though all paperwork competed in advance at zocdoc, the office did not have it and made me repeat the entire questionnaire which wasted too much time before getting to see doctor.

pleasant- but part of reason i made appointment was I was having eye discharge-which she observed but was gone before i could ask if I needed a Rx, plus it was shortest eye exam-I think the tech flipped the lens twiceat most,even though i complained of vision changes and had significant medical history,.other then to tell me I had no diabetic changes,no other medical issue were addressed that in the past had other doctors doing quite a comprehensive exam due to my medical issue,some which have direct relationship to my vision.

I found her to be cold and indifferent. I waited over an hour for a 2 minute eye examination and felt as though my concerns were not being taken very seriously. Her advice was flippant and her attitude careless. I will not be returning to her office.
