He's an excellent dr. He performed partial knee replacement on both my knees. I recovered very quickly. I was surprised because I'm in my 70's. He always explains things very thoroughly and answers my questions. I have recommended him.

I love dr Knedel. He replaced my knee on June 1, 2020. I started physical therapy on June 5th. My knee is doing great. My scar looks amazing. A small line down my knee. I am able to walk without worrying about my knee going out on me. Thank you Dr Knedel!

First, his office people were both very friendly and efficient. No long waits! Doctor Knedel was also friendly, I never felt rushed, and he was very informative. And most important, the hip replacement surgery was much easier than I expected. Surprisingly little pain and a quick recovery. Highly recommended.

Do not go to Doctor Knedel. He is the worst Doctor I have ever been to. After just a few months of my knee not getting better he suggested me to go to different Doctor. Well I went to LA the Doctor I went to said he had to redo the total replacement. And cut out the scar tissue that Dr. Knedel said he could not do. After being in pain for 10 months Dr. Knedel said he didn't know what was wrong with my knee. If you go to him and he does it wrong good luck because he doesn't want to help you.

I was experiencing hip pain discomfort for about two years. I had a right hip replacement on August 12, 2019 by Dr. Knedel. It went very well. He had all needed prescriptions ordered for prior pickup. He stated that the hip pain would be gone at the time of the operation. He was right. The healing time is much better than I expected. First week I walked around my home with the use of a walker. Second week slight use of a cane. By the third week I was off of pain medication and walking without a two year old painful limp. I highly recommend Dr. Knedel.

I wish there were more stars to give Dr Knedel and his staff, they deserve at least TEN! The efficiency, compassion and care I received from the first phone call were exemplary. The office is busy, but I was never kept waiting or late being seen for an appointment. I never had a problem getting ahold of someone when I had a question, and the one time I left a voice mail, the call was returned promptly. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr Knedel and his staff (including his team at St Agnes) for surgical procedures and follow up care. Thank you!

Dr. Knedel and his staff are professionals who take time to listen to the patient's concerns. I never feel rushed and know that I can ask about all concerns and ask for explanations if necessary. I'm so glad he chose to practice in the Fresno/Clovis area and will not hesitate to refer friends to him should they need an Orthopedic Surgeon.

Dr. Knedel did both complete hip replacements within a ten month period in 2018 with great success. He is the best Orthopaedic doctor I have been to. He is extremely kind and knowledgeable in his field. He makes one feel very comfortable before and after surgery...very approachable and followed up with me immediately. Also, there are NO long waits to be seen! I would highly recommend Dr. Knedell, a true blessing to me. Pat Christiansen

Dr. Knedle is very skilled and kind. He is professional and is excellent at communicating with patients. He took the time to answer all our questions, and was very reassuring with my 80 year "young" mother. I appreciate all of his help and would definitely recommend him as a doctor for surgical needs.
