I was completely aware during an entire colonoscopy although the list of medications to relax and put me to sleep were Versed, Fentanyl and Benadryl. Either the nurse took my medication or the pharmacy they get it from did. I was the lucky recipient of a full colonoscopy without anything to help me. I screamed repeatedly, tried to grab the instrument 3 times and was chastised by the nurse for doing so. Dr. Knopp did question the amount of meds given and why I was still awake. Do not go there!!

I was very impressed with Dr. Knopp, he was super nice and caring. He was very knowledgable about my stomach issues and came up with a very good treatment plan.

This Doctor is horrible! Do not go see him if you are sick. He will drag you along and then send you to other doctors after he gives up on you.
I am sorry that you feel this way. I try my best to be diligent and thorough but despite this we as physicians are not perfect and sometimes we can not come up with all the answers. I really try hard to get to the bottom of the issues without sending patients off for further evaluation at other institutions. I am again sorry that I failed you and hope that you are doing better.

Dr. Knopp is amazing! I felt very comfortable opening up about the issues I've been having; he listened so intently, asked questions, & provided answers to all the questions I had. I had previously been to a doctor in a different city & felt very rushed & like my problems were unimportant but Dr. Knopp never made me feel that way. His staff is very friendly, helpful & made a very uncomfortable procedure bearable. Id recommend Dr. Knopp & his staff to anyone having belly issues. Thank you all!!!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Knopp says...

As a physician, I am fully aware that my patients are coming to me with difficult and very personal issues. Let's face it…most gastrointestinal issues are difficult to discuss with your spouse, let alone your provider. Many of my patient's issues are not brought to their provider's attention secondary to fear of embarrassment. Physician's offices are busy and patients do not feel they need to burden their physician with "A little rectal bleeding" or "Diarrhea" at the end of their check up for blood pressure control. As the son of a colorectal cancer survivor, whose early symptoms were not mentioned because fear of embarrassment and not wanting to waste his physician's time with insignificant complaints, I am dedicated to providing you with the time required to fully discuss your issues. I will listen to your concerns, encourage questions, and explore your treatment options. For me, the most rewarding aspects of being a gastroenterologist are when my patients return to the office feeling better and when they know that my staff and I truly care about their overall well-being.
