I disagree with some reviews! Dr Knievel was WELL worth the wait! The reason many doctors don't have a long wait is they aren't that good. She sought after and can only see one patint at a time (she's human like the rest of us) and deeply cares about helping me. She said "your condition is hard to treat, but I won't give up on you if you don't give up on me"-very comforting for me to hear after seeing neurologists in AZ and CA who said there was nothing that could be done for me. ????
in Sierra Vista, AZ |
I travel 3 hrs in one direction every 3 months to see Doctor Knievel. I was diagnosed with IIH and chronic Migraines, and although IIH is hard to treat Doctor Knievel has done her best to help. She is very understanding and listens to her patients. Doctor Knievel along with her staff are very friendly. I would highly recommend her to anyone with IIH/PTC or Chronic Migraines.
in Glendale, AZ |
I was referrred to her after being diagnosed with IIH. For starters her office staff is horrible and never return phone calls. The whole place is very disorganized and things change constantly. Dr. Knievel herself is nice in person but there has been several times things have been put in my chart that don't pertain to me or she'll mention something to me and I have to tell her that wasn't me. Not very personalized care, she won't remember you. Hard to get appointments currently on a waitlist.

My wife has a Chiari Malformation\thunder clamp headaches. We have been working with Dr. Knievel for about 6 months (only 3 visits, 2 blood patches, multiple scans, different medication, multiple Emergency visits, with no results. We have done everything she has recommended for the sever headaches pain that begins in the back of her head, radiating down her neck, shoulders, and moves to the front of her head. She's been in horrific(wanting to die) pain. This doesn't seem to speed up Knievel.

Thank you for the posted reviews. I am looking for another doctor and absolutely will not use this one now.
in Peachtree City, GA |
I travel across the country to see and be treated by Dr Knievel. I find her and her staff very approachable and helpful. She listens to me, as a patient and a person, allowing me to feel safe and cared for. My migraines have been reduced by more than half under Dr Knievels care. I am grateful that I found her.
Mesa, AZ |
I was referred to Dr. Knievel after having brain surgery. I was in constant pain, had terrible headaches, balance issues, fluid pocket in the back of my head, and could not sleep. She did not even try to help resolve my issues. I was just another number to her. The wait time was unacceptable and the office never bothered to call to schedule follow up appointments like they were suppose to. I am so happy I decided to seek treatment out of her office.
in Phoenix, AZ |
I was in the hospital on May 13th with a neurological disorder - I was referred to Dr. Knievel - I called the next day as I was told to follow up within one week of the hospital visit. I called 3 TIMES and never got an apt - I called again today and finally got an apt set for SEPTEMBER. I am out of my meds and they didn't seem to care. Hopefully, when I visit the office I wont be treated as poorly.
