Ratings for Dr. Garry Knoll
Went for vasectomy consult, was given a photocopied handout to read that had errors (e.g. it said a vasectomy would stop the flow of semen rather than sperm!). The vasectomy was painful and took forever to heal (that's probably not unusual), and the doc was dismissive and used some basic strategies to assert control when it was not necessary. The clincher came when I sent the the sample back in to test if if it worked. I waited to hear the results, I assumed no news was good news. They didn't call or contact me at all to tell me it had not worked and I was not yet shooting blanks. I found out by calling a couple of months later, when they nonchalantly told me to get retested. Scary!
I have never experienced an eye roll by a doctor before. If he can't find out what is wrong with you he assumes you need to see a psychiatrist and prescribes anti depressants. His diagnosis or lack there of has been down right dangerous for me and other family members. He has become more condescending with each year and I, literally, can't stand to see him any more. To say I am disappointed by his clinician and diagnosis skills is an understatement. My pets deserve and get better treatment then I do from him. Also, his underlings he has recently gone into partnership are basically "Mini Me" clones and continue to dole out the same kinds of tactics. For shame!
Dr. Knoll, wasnt my favorite doctor, only because he worked along side dr. wilson, who was. But over the past few years, he has been AWESOME!! He personally called me after I found out I was pregnant following a miscarriage and took special care of me and made sure baby was safe. I appreciate his care.
Dr. Gary Knoll is hands down the best doctor we have EVER had. I have a young family (1 & 2yr). We were new to PG and he welcomed my family to his practice. Furthermore, my son HATES doctors and is calmed by Dr. Knoll's kind nature. Dr. Knoll also always has an appointment for my kids as he knows how imperative it is to have kids seen right away by a doctor. The one thing that goes above and beyond is Dr.Knoll's after hours call in number. He has grouped with a number of doctors that shares answering this after hours number. We can call this emergency line up until 11pm 7 days a week... including new years day when we last used it! This service has saved us many trips to the emergency line up with our kids. I can;t even believe this service is available in 2010! Doctors and service were not words that were put together until we met Dr. Knoll and his practice. Everyone from the wonderful receptionist to the other doctors he shares his practice are above and Beyond a 10 star rating.
Get another doctor if you can!! I can't understand why some people like him. He looks down his nose at my family members and doesn't even bring up their info on his screen to show them he is concerned. Come on Garry, their are a lot of poor to middle-class people in this town and they deserve the same attention as the important customers. When you leave his office you feel abused!!!
DR.Knoll treated me with disrespect He Miss diganose me. Gave me medication that made me shake and broke out in bruises. He tried other meds I told him I was dizzy. He said get up on the examiing table. So like a fool I did. He looked in my eyes and ears with his light and laid me down pushed me up and then said our you dizzy now. I was mad he sent me to Dr. Wilson and he reamed me out good for not taking his drugs
I also find the staff enormously condescending and insensitive; however, I must disagree with the general negative comments posted by others. After several disrespecting drs, Knoll is a breath of fresh air, I find him supportive, understanding and compassionate and I will send a Christmas card saying so. My situation has been trying and I am thankful and reassured by his medical expertise.
