Excellent service and attention. I had a severe problem with much pain and suffering. Dr. Jean Knapps got me a very accurate diagnosis and solved my problem in a few days. He was also very professional with my colonoscopy that went all easy from beginning to end, therefore I would not hesitate to recommend him.

I was in the office for a physical check-up and to schedule surgery for an umbilical hernia. The office was spotless and tidy; the waiting time was minimal. Dr. Knapps invested the correct time for my review; he was very attentive to my questions and clarified all my doubts. The surgery was scheduled, as well as the subsequent follow-up consultation. I widely recommend Dr. Knapps as a dependable and technical skillfully surgeon.

Not a Review but a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Knapps, My wife was referred to D.R Knapps for a medical issue. Come to find out that my wife's issue as not one of Dr. Knapps expertises. Dr. Knapps took the time to look at my wifes C.T scan and go over a little bit of what was going on. He assisted her in finding the right Dr. and even followed up with a called and talked to my wife's new doctor. Thank you Dr. Knapps

I feel very lucky that I was referred to Dr. Knapps. Yes, he is a wonderful doctor but just as important, he is just a good person who made me feel comfortable before and after my surgery. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone.

My husband found Dr. Knapps when he had to have emergency surgery to remove his entire colon due to ulcerative colitis in December of 2018. Since, he has been his surgeon for the next steps of his recovery and future surgeries. He just completed my husband’s second surgery and really takes the time to make sure we are confident in his decisions and his work. He really cares about his patients and how they are feeling. Even though my husband’s surgeries have been extensive, he gets relief knowing Dr. Knapps will always be a friendly face to see during and after. I think that has really made a difference in his recovery.

Fantastic. Friendly, comfortable, smart, and down to earth. Dr. Knapps talks to my family and me like we're just people. He gives information without assuming we know what he's talking about but without being condescending. We were so lucky to have been assigned him as my father's surgeon this spring - he literally saved my father's life.

Dr. Knapps was very patient and answered all my and my Mom's questions, very warm and understanding, he made us feel very comfortable with the procedures and was always available to answer any questions. The fact that he spoke Spanish made all the difference in the world for my Mom because she was able to communicate herself to the doctor without having me as an interpreter. We will recommend him to every single person that I know that may need a colon and rectal surgeon.

One of the best doctors I have ever had. My situation was very rare and he was with me every step of the way. He went out of his was to get ahold of me and made sure I was doing okay. Also, he always tries to use the least invasive treatment first!
