Dr. Knudsen is great. I found her and she was willing to take on my case. Wouldn’t see any other doctor. She knew what was wrong before the blood work even came back. I highly recommend her.

She stays attune to what's new and available for her patients. I appreciate her attentiveness and attention to details as a patient; I know I am in the best of care. The office staff is highly competent, helpful and friendly. Thank you Dr Knudsen and staff.

This visit took place during the COVID-19 quarantine and was an e-visit. I have been seeing Dr Knudsen for several years for management of PCOS and premenopausal osteoporosis. She and I are of similar age, stage of life, and educational background. She directs her care and patient education for me based on these factors, which I appreciate very much. I find her to be extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current treatments. And while she informs me of these treatments in relation to my own health status, I do not find her to be pushy as to one or another, and gives me time to make my own decisions. I am, and have been, very happy with the care I receive from Dr. Knudsen.
