I would highly recommend Dr. Knops for any ENT problems. His friendly, supportive demeanor set me at ease during my very first appointment. He is extremely knowledgeable and explains your medical situation, and the plan for recovery very well. I am very pleased with his efforts.
Bellingham, WA |
Dr. Knop quickly established repore with me through warmth and concern about my condition. He was thorough in our first encounter and answered all of my questions. He did not rush. I required an outpatient surgery and i have additional conditions that also required a consultation with my cardiologist and the proposed anesthesiologist. Dr. Knops and his staff coordinated all of my needs.
in Everson, WA |
Dr. Knops has been my treating physician/surgeon for nasal polyps and accompanying sinus, ear and throat difficulties for the past 20-years. He has always provided excellent medical care as well as providing clear explanation of treatment. I have full confidence in his ability to provide me with the best health care possible and am very appreciative of the medical care I have received from Dr. Knops and his staff over the years.
