Knittel Ansa's Care Philosophy

Knittel's approach to treating & caring for patients is simple. He believes and provides the following three: Individualize Care - He believes that no two patients are alike, no two limbs are alike. He takes the time to know his patients by active listening carefully and then formulates treatment plan that fits the particular patient's physical ands psychological needs. Timely Delivery - Knittel believes that delayed care is bad care. He is dedicated to work with the patients, referring physicians, insurances, and the entire clinical team to provide the patient with timely health care delivery. Each patient deserve the best service - The Aspire Experience. Training & Education - Be believes that perfect practice makes perfect. It is about the Advice he gives his patients, not the Device. He takes his time to train and educate each patient to make sure that they are comfortable using and caring for each device. He truly believes that the prostheses or the orthoses are useless without the appropriate training; and he refuses to make devices for patient to be left in their closets (this is not fair to the payer).
