I didn't understand at first that there was another Dr.'s office in the same suite, so I wondered why everyone was getting called and going in before me. I later figured it out.
Dec 23, 2021
Both the nurse and Dr were amazing. They made me feel comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation.

I wasn't asked for my insurance card and id until I was leaving (in extreme pain). I would have preferred to do this when I first got there.

My first impression of Dr. Kanache and her staff was excellent. When I called to schedule my appointment, Betsy answered the phone and was curteous, concerned and efficient. I was very please with my initial experience. The on line sign in and processing was extremely easy. When I arrived on the day of my appointment, I was greeted by the front desk and everyone was extremely pleasant. I was taken back to Dr. Kanache's office very quickly. Her nurse took additional information and data. She was very pleasant and kind as well. Dr. Kanache was great. She took a thorough inventory of my health history and asked me lots of questions regarding my condition. My husband accompanied me to this visit since it was a surgical consult. My husband is an Orthopaedic Spine Surgery, so he also asked lots of questions and Dr. Kanache was patient, thorough and concise regarding my treatment plan and also described what the processes would be if surgery were needed in the future. We came up with a conservative treatment plan, but she explained that she would be there for me if my condition intensified (and in the event that I need surgery). She told me that her nurse would follow up with me in a few weeks in order to check on me. I thought that was nice. She stated that if surgery became necessary, she would be happy to do the surgery. I will definitely have Dr. Kanache perform my surgery, if it becomes necessary. I have the utmost confidence in her as a surgeon. She was direct and to the point. I am 100% satisfied with my visit.

Thank you for minimal wait times and not rushing through the appointment! Alyssa was so friendly and helpful prior to me seeing Dr. Knoche. Dr Knoche was thorough with my visit and took her time with me. She was actively listening and has great communication, which I truly appreciate! Very pleased with my visit. You can tell she's a doctor who is considerate of her patients and knowledgeable with her profession!
Oct 28, 2021
Alyssa made me feel very comfortable and answered as many questions as she could. She acknowledged that we had talked on the phone, which was nice to put a face to the name and know that she was familiar with our previous conversation.

I am very appreciative that Dr. Knoche is considerate of my feelings on my treatment. I feel confident in her diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

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!

It did not please me at all that I had to fill out MORE health forms in the waiting room when I had already given all of that same information to you online.
