Thanks for refusing to treat my son last wednesday! He was admitted to L S U and had emergecy surgery in the middle of the night Thursday. Was it that he had medicare and medicaid? Or you did not have the ability to do the surgery? I tend to think it was the money. Thanks alot.

Dr. Knight is so easy to talk to and takes time explaining everything. His nurse, Angela is the best. He's the best surgeon in town.
