Dr. Knopke is very competent in his practice, but he is not a very good people person. He is consistently terse, condescending, and unapproachable. While I have no doubt that he is an astute practitioner of medicine, I would look elsewhere if you are seeking cordial and polite care.

First of all, Dr. Knopke is great. He is kind and explains things in a way that is easy to understand. Absolutely one of my favorite doctors. BUT, that staff of his is a collection of incompetent fools. Have labs done? Break out your Crystal ball because they won't call and let you know the...more

Sean, I am truly sorry you had difficulty with my staff. While access to your records is free upon request, our policy is to give negative results by phone and discuss positive results at follow-up. Similarly, medication refills are offered up to a time when further evaluation is needed. A short course of refills are offered if there is trouble returning to the office as expected. If there are further problems, I welcome a call from you so that we might discuss the problem specifically.

Great Doctor. When it comes to medical testing to find the underlying cause, he is very detailed. Takes the time to explain results and options to resolve your medical issue. Listens to your input.
