If possible, please route these comments to the doctor. This is the first time I have really wanted to express gratitude to a doctor. Dr. Knoche has given me my life back. Since January, I have been in intense pain or fear of pain. I rarely stood up or 'walked' due to complications, and this was especially problematic for my Ataxia. Thank you!!!!

The doctor was very thorough and spent a great amount of time with me. So I was ok with waiting for her.

Dr. Knoche is amazing. She is very calm and that helps to put me at ease. She listened to my situation and gave me a plan to follow with the understanding that I should call with any concerns. If only all doctors, PA's, and nurses treated their patients like this it would be wonderful! Thanks to all of the staff as well! I highly recommend Dr. Knoche!

Both provider's were excellent with my daughter. They made us feel that they care and answered our questions and addressed our concerns. While this could be stressful, they've eased that for me.

not great about wearing masks. I'm sure they have all been vaccinated by this point but it sometimes is uneasy seeing them talking without masks on them helping patients. primarily the office staff. I never seen a nurse or doctor without their mask on.

excellent MD truly listened to all my concerns and showed real empathy
Mar 5, 2021
in contacting the office you never get a human no matter what option you pick that is why I give "fair" for " Ease of Contact" because even when I called after my appointment again or to return a phone to staff member you do NOT get option to Speak to a human which I personally think is bad !

I did due diligence in researching Dr. Susan Knoche in considering which surgeon to select. Upon meeting her and her staff Elisa, I was quite pleased. After speaking with Dr. K. for an extended period of time, I believe she is an intelligent, competent, and personable individual and surgeon. Her background and experience are impressive. I was comfortable enough to set a date for my surgery.

I completed pre registration information at home, then when I arrived there was more to fill out ...some duplication.
Mar 2, 2021
The staff and Dr were very friendly and easy to talk with. They showed concern for me as a patient and I would recommend them to anyone.
