I recently had a consult with Dr Knowles and needed a CT scan. My insurance required authorization. The lady in the office who handles this, got the authorization approved the same day as my consult! Now that is fast. I got the CT scan and the f/u both within 1 week of the original consult. I highly recommend this office. Great staff.
I would highly recommend Dr Knowles and his staff to take care of any Urologic needs. I have seen Dr Knowles and his wife both and I am very impressed. I would also like to state that his billing office has impressed me as well. They were very willing to help. I had to have a surgery done and was very nervous but the doctor and his surgery scheduler was very kind and helped calm my nerves. I would recommend him to anyone.
I want to thank Dr. David Knowles and his staff. It was a great experience. From the start of calling to schedule an appointment to being taken care of. They work very hard to work with whats best for the patient in every way! All the staff from the receptionist to the nursing staff to the providers were very kind hearted and friendly! I would suggest Dr. Knowles to anyone that would need a Urologist.
My overall experience at Dr Knowles office was a pleasant one. Everyone from the front desk to the billing office was very courteous and willing to assist me and to answer my questions. Although I had to wait a little while to be seen, it was very understandable because it is a very busy office. It was definitely worth the wait. I recommend anyone needing a urologist to call Dr Knowles office.
