in Plattsburgh, NY |
I was referred to Dr Kneifel by the VA to check for a shoulder replacement a few years ago. He didnt want to see the mri and x-rays on disc I had brought with me but did a quick x-ray and dismissed me saying he just does shoulder repair and not replacements have a good day bye. Now I must have the replacement as i am in constant level 6-7 pain as the joint has disintegrated so much debris is just "floating" and causing concerns. And that does not take into account the tendons are completely torn

He was patient, explained everything and took the time to listen to my concerns. He was open to waiting on surgery to see if other non-invasive methods worked first - they did not. He performed by knee surgery and I have not had a problem since - awesome doctor!!

I went to see Dr. Kneifel today for the first time for my knee. He is very professional and he gave me options on what I wanted to do today. He is very polite, efficient and caring.
