A very caring doctor

I've been going to Dr.Knecht since he started practicing medicine. He's always been there for me. He always takes time to talk to about any medical problems and answers my questions honestly. I don't know how I would manage my health problems with out him.

He is the doctor that doctors use

Dr.Knecht has the most professional and caring I have ever encountered in a physician. He is great with kids and with adults as well. Other physicians go to him and he is a great diagnostician. He will point you in the right direction for a specialist. I know two people for whom and has discovered cancers at a much earlier stage than most physicians, according to the cancer centers they later attended. He will personally check up on you and WILL answer his home phone if you call him. He will also meet you at the emergency room when necessary. His staff is super nice and knowledgeable. In addition, he has a great sense of humor.
