This "Dr" was seeing my sister for an ear infection. He let it go way too long and she ended up going to the ER and being hospitalized for several days. If it had gone much longer, she could have lost her hearing. After doing some digging it turns out he was fired from the hospital in St. Joseph MO for incompetence. It shows. Do NOT see this man!

Had Endoscopic Sinus Surgery 8/23/16 to correct and open blockage from another ENT's work from 15 months prior. Dr. Scott Knappenberger was completely thorough, accurate, offers options, up front about recoup time and process. He and his staff kept in contact with me after the surgery to ensure I was doing well. Wish every physician was like him!!
