Surgery got an Ileostomy
I went to visit dr knapps not knowing if he would help me on a problem I already had . He went straight out to help me not being afraid I had fishlas and a botched colon surgery from a different doctor. With in a month he scheduled surgery and did a wonderful job helping me and did an Ileostomy cleaning me out getting rid of the Abscess and tube bag that I had. He is very professional and there to make sure you are taken care of . The best surgeon who was not Afraid to help me out when no other surgeon wanted to do my surgery.

Wonderful Doctor
Dr. Knapps did a reversal colostomy on Nov. 1, 2021. He was able to use Robotics and he also took the time to remove adhesions. He is very friendly and knowledgeable and i would highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Knapps for making my surgery comfortable and going the extra mile in helping me.

After meeting with Dr. Knapps, I was very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism in the field of colon surgery. His bedside manner is excellent, he can explain complex situations in an easy to understand manner. He was great making sure I knew what to expect at each phase of the surgery, including pre and post. I give him a 5 star plus because I am convinced had it not been for his skills as a surgeon, I would not be alive today.

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
