Specialties

Dr. Robert S Knapp has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    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.

  • Psychiatry

    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.

One Star

Dr. Knapp is very nice and polite but my main frustration lies with his punctuality with appointments. It seems like his staff will book in as many people as possible in one time slot and you end up waiting at least an hour before seeing him. I've had to wait a few months for his staff to follow up with referrals and sometimes you have to call the specialist yourself to get an answer. The latest dealbreaker was finding out that they now charge money to simply write a referral letter for physio, therapists, etc. It was great in the beginning to have Dr. Knapp but the services and time spent waiting is worse than a walk-in clinic. I'll be searching for a new doctor.

I'd recommend Dr. Knapp

As with any doctor you must disclose all of your symptoms and fears - once done I found Dr. Knapp responsive and concerned. He is conservative and does not leap to the worst conclusion as other doctors do. Pleasant, curtious, and attentive. Taking time before ordering a battery of expensive tests when it is not an emergency I find refreshing.

Dr. Knapp misdiagnosed me for over 6 months and if I had not gone to another neurologist I would have had a stroke. He refused to order an MRI for me because of the costs and never listened to my symptoms without interrupting me and trying to make them into something different
