Dr. Knapp treats you like a friend rather than a patient. She listens and gives wonderful advice. No sugarcoating either...she is straight up and honest but in a comforting and caring manner! She loves her friends (patients)!

As we can all agree, this is not your most favorite type of appointment. However, it's made bearable by the fact that I always look forward to seeing Dr. Knapp. She's so incredibly personable and what I find the most intriguing, is that she does the pelvic exam, all the while talking to you, to the point that you don't even realize the exam has been completed. She asks the right questions and then she listens! Always urges me to ask any and all questions I may have that she didn't cover. She's never in a hurry to get to the next exam room. She always makes you the priority and you're completely aware of that fact!

I have known Dr. Knapp for about 20 years now, and she is the same Dr. Knapp today that she was then: very professional, brilliant, sharp, extremely knowledgeable. And what is equally important – caring. A nice, kind human being. All these years not only did she treat me, but also advised me on a variety of matters related to my health. I know I can always rely on her. I would recommend her to anyone with high confidence. Thank you very much for everything, Dr. Knapp - from Satik Movsesian.

This was my second visit to Dr Knapp but my first procedure with her. Having had this same procedure done 5 years ago I was not looking forward to having it again. The previous procedure was a little time consuming and extremely uncomfortable to the point of a little painful. Dr Knapp carried out this procedure in about 2 seconds flat and I didn't feel a thing! She was miraculous!
