Patient Comments (2)
in Cleveland, TN |
My first surgery. From the very beginning of the referral process, the office was extraordinarily kind and Dr. Knabb was great. I felt absolutely confident in his professional ability from the start and his bedside manner put me at ease. I was very nervous about the surgery (hernia repair), but it went very well and was successful. I have experienced no complications, but Dr. Knabb and his staff have been there through the process. This is a great surgeon.
