Silver City, NM |
Dr. Knaus quite possibly the best bedside manner of any physician I've seen in my over 50 years of doctors appointments. He is attentive and thorough. He carefully weighs out the best course of action for my care. I never feel rushed by him. He has even taken interest in mental health therapies that I have told him have helped reduce my pain. An openess to a mind body connection isn't easy to come by in an.MD. I highly recommend him!
