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.

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!

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.
