I highly recommend Dr. Knackstedt. He has performed Mohs surgery on my face 3 times in the past year. I think he is professional, friendly, and makes me feel comfortable in his care. He took the time to answer my questions without rushing me and gave me valuable information from his educated point of view.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Knackstedt to members of my family and friends. He is very knowledgeable, spends time explaining the procedure and had my complete trust in him. He is very soft spoken and is a good listener. Made me feel very comfortable. His nurse is the best. Very friendly and courteous. Believe it or not, they turned my apprehensions about the procedure into a pleasant experience.
