    Dr. Knolmayer was a "10" throughout the entire visit.

  • Dec 27, 2023

    Dr. Knolmayer is excellent. He explains things thoroughly. He takes his time and makes sure I understand what he is doing and why. I never feel rushed when I see him. I am pleased with the results of my knee replacement surgeries and recommend him without hesitation.
