After my previous doctor for over 35 years retired I was hesitant about finding a new doctor. I am now a patient of Doctor Cynthia Michel-Knowles and couldn't be happier. The staff are friendly, have a sense of humor, and are very proficient in handling patients and doing the preliminaries before the doctor enters the room. Dr. Knowles does not rush the appointment, explains the tests results thoroughly, and treats me with respect and concern. I did not wait more than 15 min. Very happy.

As a physician myself I often question what do patients expect from us, I resent that the only bad review Dr. Knowles has received is from a patient that is not diligent enough to at least get the standard annual examination. For everyone's info even insurances companies do not consider a patient an established one after three years but rather a new one. Any physician in the same situation would have done the same because new pt appointments are usually limited because of the time they require.

My husband and I had seen Dr. Knowles in the past and I don't see doctors just because I'm sick, so I have not seen her in 3 years. I am actually sick now and the staff told me that they only thing they could do for me was to go to Urgent Care. It must be nice to be so busy that you can turn business away. I will be finding a Dr. that just doesn't toss me out of their system because I don't visit too often! We will both be taking our business else where.

Dr Knowles is the first doctor in a long time that I felt completely comfortable with, she listens to what your saying, she doesn't make you feel rushed through your appointment and really explains what is going on in terms you can understand. I have had only good experiences with Dr Knowles and would recommend her.

I have been seeing Dr Knowles for the past couple of years and am very pleased with her and her staff's treatment. I get treated very well and feel that she really listens to my concerns and also feel that she genuinely cares about my medical status. When I first started coming to her clinic my test results were very poor and extremely dangerous levels. Since then with her plan she has helped me to get everything back to a reasonable status. To Dr Knowles and staff I am very greatful. Thank you
