Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Knapp "As an endocrinologist, diabetologist, internist, primary care physician and healthcare purveyor trained overseas in chiropractics, I try to address all my patients' complaints. My wife and nurse practitioner, Diane Turkovich Knapp, does an extensive one hour exam on new patients. No complaint is too mundane . I no longer hug any patient after I was found not guilty 3 years ago; my case was expunged (meaning it never existed) by the courthouse. ."

To begin with, the receptionist at this office is unfriendly. Knowing the first consultation will take approximately 2 hours, I kindly requested a 1:00 appointment as I have to work at 3:30.

The secretary can be rude at times. However, the quality of patient care is exceptional.

Recently switched to Dr Knapp as my PCP- wish i had done so years ago. You truly feel like a patient instead of just a number/insurance claim.

Every visit is at least a 2-3 hour wait! And after the wait, I had to endure 20-30 minute lectures on everything from every possible condition I could inherit based on my family history, eating, dieting, etc. Poor front desk service staff. I lasted a year with this doctor before I switched.
