My experiences with Dr. Knego and his PA

The first time I came in, I saw the PA. He was very helpful and explained the issues I had and what surgery was going to be needed. When I saw Dr. Knego, he suggested that since the surgery was going to be extensive, if I wanted to hold off, he thought I should try other options first. After sever months, and numerous options, I concluded that it was necessary for surgery. Prior to the surgery, he called me on the phone and we talked for at least half an hour going over everything and decided that the extensive procedure would not be necessary and opted for a lesser surgery, but that would still take care of the severe spinal stenosis of L5-6 and LS1-2. The procedure went well, and although I am 73 years old, healed remarkably quickly and he was wonderful as well after the surgery. He and his PA fought for me when the hospital wanted to release me and send me home after only 3 days rather than sending me to rehab, where I finally went to recover and rehabilitate. I couldn't have done it on my own.

One Star

Disregards medical evidence and refers patients through multiple testing and specialists. Always behind schedule and wait time could run as long as 3+ hours at times. His bed side manner needs major improvement!
