I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Dr.Knechtl and his staff. You don't wait in the lobby for more than 20 minutes (which I've found is good for a doctor). When you get to the examination room you aren't in there very long. The doctor offered to buy my medication, because he knew I could not afford it. I have never been so touched by another person's kindness. My only issue with McLaren is one time a pharmacist was rude to me.

Don't go. They make you wait 20-40 minutes past your appointment time. Knechtl doesn't really care about you unless you have insurance, or what he would consider a significant problem. I'm in pain every day.. his response? "Yeaaahhh... okay... umm". Way to make your patient more comfortable. I'm looking for a new.. and better doctor.
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
