What People Say About Dr. Dean Knudson, MD

My son was mandated by Hennepin Co. to have a Psych & IQ testing to insure he still qualified for benefits as he is mentally handicapped. I mailed the counties requirement for testing to Associated and talked to them when scheduling the appointment about what we needed. The appt. was made with Dr. Knudson. Dr. Knudson was extremely rude to me and my son. He never made eye contact, was cold and didn’t interact with my son at all. Dr. Knudson said he couldn’t do anything with him as he was screaming. My son was whining & upset. He also said he wasn’t qualified to do the testing we required. Why were we scheduled with him? None of what he was asking had anything to do with why we were there. Dr. Knudson’s report was filled with inaccurate information, he said my son was mute. This was a huge waste of time and taxpayer money. The office staff was’t helpful and they DO NOT have a handicapped entrance, no one offers to hold the door for a wheelchair. Avoid this place!!

Very disappointing. Dr. Knudson left his last position with another group and we, his patients are the ones that suffered. We got put in the middle of his departure which resulted in NO CARE for us, his patients. It was a very bad and negative experience for me as his patient. Basically, I was left without any care and ZERO medication refills. Thankfully my personal MD prescribed the medications I needed. Knutson never should have left us in that position esp when we have mental health concerns.

My daughter has had ongoing mental health issues since she was 12. She is now 26. Dr. K is the first psychiatrist that has helped her. She is finally on a good mix of meds and is very stable.
