She severely over-medicated my wife with Neurontin and morphine to the point where my wife wife could barely stay awake. When I questioned her approach my wife was discharged from Dr. Knoploch's practice

Very limited on availability however requires that you go every month or she will drop you. If you have a full time job or a job that requires travel then you should probably look elsewhere. Very controlling and rigid to the point where it is not in the best interest of the patient. Also, office staff rude.

I have suffered with chronic, severe pain from Osteo Arthritis for years. I was having an extremely hard time finding a surgeon who would even consider bilateral double knee surgery on me (biggest concern was my age). Dr Knoploch not only made my life enjoyable again by treating my pain & keeping it tolerable, she also went above & beyond to help me find someone who specializes in knee replacement surgeries. I wasn't just another day at work, she's skilled, cares about & values her patients.

I was a patient of Dr. Knoploch's , approx. 4 yrs, while I lived in CT. My back pain was unbearable. I was told there was no cure and not procedure left to help me. I reached out to Dr. Knoploch, who put all her experience, time into my case and it didn't take her long to find a solution where I would get some relief and be able to function again. 10 yrs. later I still endure pain, nothing like the first day when I met Dr. Knoploch. Better late than never, Thanks Dr. Knoploch. Maria Gourlay
