Dr. Kneeman took over my care about a year ago, though I have been under KPA's care for about 6 years now.
I started with Dr. Gupta. I had been unable to work due to Occipital Neuralgia (diagnosed just before I came to Dr. Gupta), and Dr. Gupta got me back to work in about 3 years, which was an amazing feat!
With my treatment plan in place, and Dr. Gupta spending less time at the pain clinic in Ottawa, I started seeing others in his practice. They were great doctors! But I never felt the same level of engagement with them as I had felt with Dr. Gupta.
Then I found Dr. Kneeman!!
I am always a nervous wreck when I see someone new, but Dr. Kneeman is awesome! Calm as a cucumber while still being very engaged! He's very thorough and very practiced with the tools of his trade!
When we decided it was time to renew my RFA (radiofrequency ablation) and we went to do the nerve-block tests, Dr. Kneeman prevented me from experiencing potentially terrifying side-effects!
There had been a miscommunication from the last time I had nerve block done (not with KPM) and I was not supposed to be taking OTC aspirin for a week prior to the blocks! (Which I had been as I had no idea!)
Dr. Kneeman is the one who discovered this, through the nurse asking him about Ibuprofen that I had taken earlier the day before so he came in to talk to me.
We could not do the nerve block that day, but I was, and am, incredibly grateful that he caught the issue before it could become a terrifying experience!
Yesterday I had my RFA with him, and he was just as awesome as ever! It helped that I knew I was in amazingly competent hands, so it seemed like no time at all I was back at home, feeling better already!
TlDr: I started with Dr. Gupta (who remains awesome), but I am also ecstatically happy that I am now Dr. Kneeman's patient. Both doctors are absolutely incredible and I am so, so grateful to and for them.
