I am a Home Care Nurse With Remedy Home Heath, Formerly Bay Nursing, Due to Very Poor Management, and change over in nurses and therapist about momthly, I left Bay Nursing after 9 years and took a job with the Most Patient oriented company I’ve ever worked for and hoping to see some of Dr Knapke patients with Remedy HHC Inc. I’ve watched and been a part of seeing his patients heal. I plan to see Dr Knapke for BI Lat knee replacements and I’m bringing my mother in law with me. Best surgeon

I was terrified - had never had surgery of any kind. Dr. Knapke engendered confidence. He is skilled and compassionate. My recovery was so quick it shocked friends in the medical field. I highly recommend him.

Dr Knapke was fantastic. He did total knee replacements on both of my Mothers knees. She is 80 and the first one went so well she came back for #2 within 7 months. She barely has had pain and can’t say enough about how good this dr is. If you are hesitant don’t be Call dr Knapke and do it today.

Had a total right hip replacement by Dr Knapke. I am so happy I had it done.Dr Knapke is an excellent surgeon. I can’t say enough great things about him and the wonderful care I received at Troy Beaumont. Yeah... I can finally enjoy life without being in pain 24/7. Thank you!

I put all of my faith in Dr Knapke: It has been a year, I am still in pain and was told 9 mo after surgery that it had failed. I saw the PA often but never saw Dr Knapke until late in July when he came in looked at my knee and announced that it had failed. I was in total shock, stayed in the parking lot and sobbed until I could drive home I wrote him a letter with all my concerns, I received no response. I am in constant pain, but I will not let him touch me again, too scary. I feel cheated.

Dr. Knapke is the best at what he does. I am a physical therapist with HealthQuest, and Dr. Knapke is one of the most highly respected doctors in his field. He has passed the family test when I sent my mother to see him for his hip and he is truly remarkable. If you are having hip pain he is the guy to see.

I read many reviews prior to going to my appointment with Dr. Knapke. I was a bit leery at first due to those reviews, but went anyway because 2 friends recommended him. I found the staff to be very kind and helpful, the wait time was not outrageous, I felt he took the time he needed to talk to me and explain about hip replacement and felt that he was very confident of himself and his team.
