I have been a patient of Dr. Knibbe's since 2008. After going to 6 different Drs, he had a diagnosis in 15 minutes, and a plan for treatment. I am comfortable discussing any problem I might have, he never rushes me during an appointment. I really enjoy his humor too. I would have no problem recommending him to anyone that is in need of a rheumatologist.

I can not say enough about Dr. Knibbe. For two years my daughter went from Doctor to doctor to specialist, passing us around and not giving us any new information. After one visit with Dr. Knibbe, we finnaly had answers. He took the time to ask questions and listen. After two years of being in pain and no answers from other doctors, Dr. Knibbe told us what was wrong, and what we could do. A wonderful man and Doctor.

I have been seeing Dr Knibbe for over 10 years. Before moving here from Chicago I was seeing the Head of Rheumatology at Northwestern University. Dr Knibbe is every bit as knowledgeable as the Doctors at Northwestern.

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.
