Dr. Matthew S Kniss has the following 3 specialties
- Clinical Neurophysiology
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Nerve Conduction Studies
- Migraine Disorder
- Alzheimer's Disease

I was very displeased with my appointment with Dr. Kniss. He acted like I was some junkie trying to obtain narcotics. He asked me several questions that he would have known the answers to had he taken the time to review the pages of information I had to fill out prior to the appointment. His demeanor was appalling and I was highly disappointed that I waited 3 weeks to get into see this Dr. and he spent 15 minutes with me. I would highly recommended seeing another doctor or going to a different clinic. He also prescribed me a very dangerous medicine that (again if we would have read my medications list) could potentially have been fatal in combination with another medicine I was taking. Don't waste your time and find someone else who is willing to care about their patients.
I have suffered nearly my whole life with Neurological Disorders, starting from the time I was 6 with Bell's Palsy to present day where I have become Orthostatic Intolerant. Dr. Kniss looks at the whole picture, and is very precise. It is always a pleasure when I have an appointment with him, as his bedside manner and insight fullness is amazing. His office and staff are very personable making the experience a very pleasant and comfortable one. A rarity these days to get the whole package.
