A HUGE HUGE WASTE OF MY TIME. SHE LIKES TO ACT LIKE SHE KNOWS EVERYTHING, BUT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT SHE DOESN'T SEEM TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WOMEN'S HEALTH. MIGHT BE SHE DOESN'T REALLY CARE WENT IN FOR A THYROID CONCERN LEFT WITH THE SAME CONCERN AND ALL SHE WANTED TO DO IS REFER ME TO OTHER DOCTORS. UMMM THOUGHT THAT WAS HER JOB. NOT ONLY THAT BUT SHE WAS SUPER LATE BECAUSE SHE WAS CHIT CHATTING WITH PEOPLE IN HER OFFICE. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON HER.

Dr. Knecht spent so much time with me to get a good understanding of my medical history, and she was very thorough with options, and future testing. She is very knowledgeable regarding the hormones. I am 32 and have many problems including autoimmune diseases, and I love how she took her time with me.

I'm tempted to leave a horrible review because she is already busy enough, but she's too fantastic to do that. I have diabetes insipidus and she's literally the only doctor I've met that not only has seen a patient with that but sees it regularly. She is extremely knowledgeable and never "settles." She wants you to feel good and will keep trying until you do. Her appointments regularly run long, but she also takes a lot of time with her patients. To me its worth it.

Never mind the insane wait times, she constantly messed up my prescriptions and took a month of beggaring each time for her to fix the issue.

Had a 1PM appointment (first appointment with the doctor after lunch,) and wound up waiting in an office room for 17 minutes. Decided to leave since my time is as valuable as hers. Saw her talking to an associate in the hall. Would she see me if I was 17 minutes late for an appointment? VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. This is the 2nd time that this has happened to me with this doctor.

Arrived 20 minutes prior to my appointment time. After one hour past my scheduled appointment time, did not yet see the doctor, and made the decision to leave 1:30 mins after my arrival. This was a new patient appointment booked months in advance. Do not want to go to a doctor or practice that does not have the decency and respect to honor a clients time. Please be aware!

My experience was terrible. I initially liked her a lot and she seemed to be knowledgeable but the first issues were not starting appointments on time. Even when I had the first appointment of the day. Then either her or her staff could never get my prescriptions right either sending in old dosages or not sending in anything at all. It took her 3 weeks to call me with results of a lymph node mapping and then called to change my synthroid dosage 3 weeks after I had already changed drs.

Dr Knecht is very patient and makes sure that I'm doing well and is always a step ahead of what I'm going to need in terms of medication and labwork. I'm very lucky to have found her! she is very personable and makes me feel very comfortable with my care.
