Dr. Knecht is extremely wonderful. She explained everything to us. She made us be at ease about the process, even went as far as making me watch the process online. She was awesome and she's amazing.

She was nice, but I felt like she didn't really take my concerns and take consideration kind of just acted like it was no big deal.

Elizabeth was very very nice with my child and did a very fast efficient job and I would recommend her for any of my friends and family.

I just wanted to comment that I've recommended Dr. Knecht already to a couple of friends from work, other moms concerned with their littles and I'm not sure if they have followed through but she has been the most responsive and respectful, especially about my little guys concerns. I really appreciate that because I had been telling our normal pediatrician for over a year and as soon as we walked in she was like absolutely and did a bunch of tests and found out that he needed his adenoids taken out. So was such a huge mom relief. This last visit I felt a little rushed. I think it was cuz we were like one of the last appointment of the day. I don't know if that was just because of again being last appointment of the day, but I had a couple other questions and I got I forgot to ask and then when I went back to ask everyone was gone already.
