in Baltimore, MD |
Dr. Knutsen is absolutely exceptional. I received great treatment though her practice from the moment I was greeted by her front staff; to meeting with the nurses and other practitioners that assisted with my care; and Dr. K's great wonderful bedside manner. Most importantly, Dr. K did a fantastic job in her orthopedic role; I underwent major surgery to repair my broken hand, and am very grateful I found her! She helped repair what could have been a permanent disability. I am fixed and healing

Absolutely terrible doctor. Has no compassion for her patients, does not spend more than 3 minutes in a room with her patients. Does not care when I repeatedly told her I was still in pain. Left her practice in DC without even telling her patients. One day -- you just couldn't schedule a follow-up visit with her when she has done your surgery 3 weeks ago. Go to anyone else.
