Dr. Knipe is an ENT expert. He is knowledgeable, thorough, compassionate, and a wonderful patient advocate. He goes above and beyond to provide excellent care. He stayed after hours to perform a procedure for me before we left town for the holidays- that is the kind of considerate doctor he is....more

Dr. Knipe addressed my ear pain in a very considerate and professional manner. He's a good listener, and asked sufficient questions to arrive at what proved to be a proper remedy. The entire experience was pleasant and comfortable. I would certainly recommend Dr. Knipe and his clinic to others.
