*Dr. Knudson is fantastic - she cares, gives me time to ask questions, answers thoroughly & explains with detail - great doctor!




So the doctor is very nice but she always seems very busy and speaks very fast and uses terminology way above my understanding. I think it's hard for her to bring it down to a non-medical person's level. And sometimes I think she thinks I am understanding when I'm really not. And because she seems busy I hate to ask a lot of questions.


I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Knudson :)


we spent an hour. I am well informed


*Dr. Knudson did a great job. I had very minimal pain. She is the best!
