      I had 2 surgeries with Dr Knecht. The only time I saw him was pre-op, he never looked in on my in post-op to let me know how things went. I never saw him on my follow ups after surgery. I decided to go to another surgeon for additional surgery.

      He has treated my daughter's clubfoot since birth. He is an amazing physician. He truly cares about her and her condition. We truly appreciate him and his PA.
      in Sedona, AZ |
      My husband was suffering with a flareup of spinal stenosis and he had an appt with dr Knecht who is a foot and ankle specialist. When he heard of Larry's primary problem and our need to travel in one weeks time across the country to our daughters wedding, he saw a need and solution. We heard him on his cell phone asking his associate, dr Norris, to "fast track" Larry so that he would be able to attend the wedding. Thanks to Dr. Knecht and Dr norris Larry walked his daughter down the aisle!
