in Rickmansworth, HRT |
Dr. Knowling and his staff provided excellent care from the first consultation through to recovery. I am from Huntsville, although now living out of the country, when it came time to choose a surgeon for my procedures, there was no other choice for me other than Dr. Knowling and his staff. I was well taken care of and the results are just as I wanted and expected!

Dr. Knowling was everything I could ask for in a doctor! I'm so happy with my results and would 10/10 reccomend him to anyone! Comfortable environment with great staff and most importantly a trustworthy caring doctor!
in Russellville, Al |
So glad that I chose Dr. Knowling and his staff for my cosmetic procedures! Everyone in his office was so pleasant and helpful during each visit. I never waited more than 5 minutes even though his office was busy. I am so happy with the results I recieved with my abdominoplasty and breast augmentation.

Dr. Knowling did a breast reduction and tummy tuck on me. The scars are healing beautifully. His staff was very friendly. Very satisfied! Would recommend him to all my friends and family.
We are so happy that you are pleased with the outcome of your surgery. Please let us know if we can ever help you in the future.

My first visit with Dr. Knowling. I could not have asked for it to have been any better. All issues were addressed and staff was 100 percent courteous, informative and friendly.
