So rude and condescending. He was yelling at all the staff and nurses while I was in my room waiting for him to come see me. Didn't spend any time with me, and the few words he did say weren't nice or helpful. Didn't ask if I had any questions either. I would not return to see this person. He's definitely not a "caregiver."

Dr. Knapp has zero personal skills. I have seen him before and seen hints of this, but today he was an hour late, he spent less than 5 minutes with me, informing me I need surgery, but getting irritated with me when i tried to make notes about the surgery. I don't care how many degrees this guy has, he is too full of himself, and does not care about patient care. Find someone else, there are plenty of good doctors out there!

Very thoughtful and kind. Took the time to explain and show me what was causing my pain. Put a plan in place to help me finally get some relief. Thanks be to God I was seen very quickly.

He asked me what was wrong. When I started to tell him, even though I had proof of my spinal injuries, he cut me off and told me I just needed to lose weight. That that was all that was wrong with me. When I have had several doctors tell me I had degenerative disc disease due to a fractured spine several years earlier. He is a condescending jerk and I would not recommend this doctor to my worst enemy
