Dr.Knepper has been our family's Primary care physician for 15 years. I hope he never retires.
Mr. Knepper was very nice and my son liked him. However, the nurse and one of the front office staff were not as nice. Will be looking for another doctor as I know the importance of having a friendly, efficient staff which I have doubts that Dr. Knepper has.

Dr Knepper is very thorough and explains diagnosis and medications in plain language. He is not only an excellent physician, but also a caring and thoughtful person.
As always, his demeanor is THE BEST. He remains ProActive in covering all the bases: symptoms, treatments, and concerns regarding my health issues as they affect my life and activities. He continues not to talk down, as if explaining to a child. But, not over my head, as if I had the training and knowledge he has obtained. He is very patient and considerate in considering patients' fears and ideas on health topics and activities. He NEVER rushes you to get in and out of his office -- very concerned and understanding. Before leaving the exam room, he reviews topics and care previously discussed -- a great communicator. He is one of the BEST if not the BEST in patient care.
Always takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns.
Great as usual! Highly recommended..
Took his time whilst I explained my medical condition, provided an exam, and requested a radiograph as a precaution to ensure no inomales exist.
Thorough, professional with a sense of humor, looks beyond just the symptoms presented, accurate.
Excellent Doctor and treatment provided, with exceptional knowledge & referrals.
Dr. Knepper always listens to my concerns, discusses possible causes, and offers options for addressing the reason for my visit. He is easy to talk to, and explains things well in language that I can understand, not medical jargon. I am thankful to have finally found a general physician that I actually LIKE going to see.

Dr. Knepper was great. He listened to my concerns and followed up accordingly. The only downside was that the wait to get my blood drawn was long then neither CMA could draw my blood so I had to go to the hospital to get it drawn.
It was my first visit with Dr. Knepper. He was pleasant, professional, personable, and prompt. Though he had several other patients that lengthened my wait, it revealed that he was willing to dedicate his time to his patients instead of limiting his interaction. " He cares about you not the about time." He expressed that he would allow as much time as needed for our initial assessment.
