He's a great doctor. I would definitely recommend him and I have. I have several friends that use him.
Thank you!

Dr. Kneidel has treated out daughter twice, once for a foot fracture and most recently a broken ankle. He made her feel comfortable and even smile during a difficult time. He is not a man of many words but I have complete faith in his skills. With her ankle, our pediatrician sent us for an xray and the radiologist told our pediatrician it was not broken. 6 days later, Dr. Kneidel looked at the same xray and immediately knew what was wrong, 4 weeks in a cast and 4 in a boot. Thanks Dr. Kneidel!
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us.

What a sad excuse for a doctor. Went in for extreme pain in my foot. Nurse took xrays which I was not shown. Kneidel spent a whole 2 minutes with me and chuckled and smiled. Honestly he looked hung over. My husband who was with me thought so too. Offered nothing but stretching exercise for foot and to continue doing Advil. Told me to come back in 2 months. Acted as if there was someplace more important to be. My husband and I are seriously considering disputing that "visit" with insurance. Trash
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We appreciate your feedback and welcome the opportunity to discuss your experience further. Please contact our clinic supervisor fsmith@apexorthokc.com.

After seeing 4 foot and ankle surgeons who disagreed with each other, Dr. Kneidel left me feeling comfortable about what was going on in my foot. His staff was fantastic (yes even the pink cast his nurse put on me after the surgery--this was a running joke between us;), and while not the most chatty doc I've seen, I always felt like he knew exactly what was going on in my foot and now that I'm playing sports again I'm even more impressed with his work. I'd recommend Dr. Kneidel to anyone.
Thank you!

Thanks to Dr. Kneidel I am training for my first marathon since my broken ankle. Two plates, sixteen screws and two surgeries later I am running pain free and so grateful I was under his care.
Thank you! Best of luck in your marathon!

Terrible. Walked out of my appointment asking myself did that just happen. Sarcastic and confrontational and for good measure an eye roll ...not anyone I would let operate on me.
Thank you for your review. We apologize if you were not satisfied with your visit. Please contact our clinic supervisor, Fawn Smith, so we can discuss your experience in greater detail. Thank you.

Worst experience I have ever had with a doctor and I was treated as an infant for my club feet who lost his license. He didn't bother reading my chart and barely looked at my xrays. He literally rolled his eyes when I described a symptom. He made pronouncements about my condition without fully realizing the full implications of my medical history. Then, he failed to advise any meaningful treatments for my excruciating pain, going as far as to tell me to take an OTC that I said didn't work
Thank you for your review. We apologize that you were not satisfied with you experience at our clinic. If you would contact our clinic supervisor, Fawn, we would appreciate the opportunity to discuss your complaints in greater detail. We are always open to any questions or concerns.

Thank you!

Dr. Kneidel has a very kind and soft demeanor. All my questions were answered at all my pre and post surgery visits. I had an excellent outcome from my surgery and his office staff was prompt and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Kneidel for any foot and ankle surgery!!!
Thank you!
in Kansas City, MO |
I would recommend Dr Kneidel for his expertise but he is not a warm, fuzzy surgeon. You have to pry out information by asking lots of questions however he is very willing to answer each. He doesn't offer much emotion either way; just a too the point kind of surgeon.
Thank you for your review.

Awful. This man has the worst bedside manner and does not deserve to operate on a dead animal. ZERO STARS.
