Dr. Knotts explained things in a way I could understand and went above and beyond by recommending a book, an application, and a blood pressure monitor. He is easy to understand, polite and respectful. I never felt rushed and thought he was very thorough.

I can't say that I really had a bad experience with Dr. Knotts but I may be not the standard patient that can be medically treated like the average patient. I never had a new issue with my knee in the past so I was not exactly prepared to ask a lot of questions.
