I felt he was very thorough, didn't try to talk me into unnecessary surgery, and gave me another optional way to address my foot issues.

I had insertional Achilles’ tendon surgery in 2012 from Dr. Kneidle unfortunately. I still have stinging chronic pain to this day May 2020. I use to be very active: basketball, marathons, cycling, now I have to decide if going for a walk is worth the increased pain while and after I do so. Other doctors have examined me but say, ‘the scar tissue is just going to be that way.’ I would seriously consider another doctor and get results and references on your particular surgery. I have had other surgeries on my legs and they turned out good, not as good as new, but workable. The Achilles surgery has greatly deceased the enjoyment I find in life.

I am not the ideal patient to leave reviews as I have some very unfortunate experiences with less than adequate surgeons but I do want to let others searching for a specialist to find comfort in the team at Apex. From the people manning the phones and front desk, to the professional that guides you to your room then finally your Dr. All unique in their approach and I find each Dr I have seen to actually listen. While I hope to not remain a patient much longer as i would to hear I have mended up fantastically and no need to return. I will say my experience has been quite positive and that is coming from someone that wants to look brave and tough but inside I'm anxious, concerned and would like nothing more than to not be near any white coat. I cant see what they see and I secretly wish someone would have a magic wand and find that magic cure but since that isnt an option I do recommend coming here and feel confident you are with the best group for your needs

I have had two Major foot surgeries with Dr. Kneidel and he did a great job. His staff is very helpful to work with and if I called with a question, Mandy is always good about returning calls. Others complain about Dr. Kneidel’s lack of communication but he is a kind man who may answer too briefly for some but I had an over all good experience. He is an excellent foot surgeon, and that’s what mattered most to me.

Dr. Kneidel is a wonderful doctor and I recommend him to anyone needing foot/ankle surgery. I don't understand any negative reviews as he has always been professional and kind and he always listens and makes sure I've had time to ask all my questions. Wait times are very quick as well. Do not hesitate to use him as your orthopedic surgeon!

I came in with a broken ankle in 1 foot and extreme pain in the other. No pain management was even discussed. At 2d visit after mri and discovering tendonitis and bursitis I had to insist on pain medication and inflammatory. Doc failed to be interested in solving my issues and was rude as well. Staff very uneducated and appear afraid to return to doc for info. I have tried for a week to discuss these concerns with Apex admin without success.

Never going back! One star because the office staff was great. Dr Kniedel was an Utter disappointment in his lack of caring or compassion towards a patient and a worried mother. I brought my 11 yr old daughter in on crutches with massive swelling, pain and frustration. He looked at the x-ray and Mri discs prior to coming into our room. Touched my daughter's foot once and asked if it hurt as she flinched. Then said this is what she has. I stood there shocked and speechless. I tried to explain her issue more and he dismissed me as if it was all wrong. He said she should walk but her foot was so swollen and hurting she couldnt. He was snide about a physical therapy referal. It felt like he thought she was insignificant and a waste of his time. A true disappointment when your child is in pain! She is now under the care of another orthopedic specialist whom has taken the time to care and in fact disagreed with the diagnosis.

Indifferent. I took my husband with me into exam room since I needed help getting into the only shoes I could wear. Dr. came in and introduced himself to my husband, and shook his hand. I was the patient, not my husband! He then turned to me and said, "You broke your ankle." I felt that he acted like I must have fallen off an assembly line. 2nd visit, he did not address me by name (as he did not the first time). VERY poor bedside manner.

He’s quick to jump and doesn’t really listen to questions or discuss anything. He said I had options for treatment. Never gave me an option just said one. If you say someone has options that means more than one treatment. My boyfriend was with me also and he made fun of what he was wearing. Needless to say I have switched to a different ankle specialist where he actually explains things and understands better!

Dr Kneidel was both informative and compassionate with our 16 year old daughter. He took the time to explain the surgery and answer all of our questions. Unfortunately, getting them to return a call to schedule the surgery has not been as easy. Left a message on Monday at 8AM, as of Tuesday at 2PM, no return call.
