Sorry to say I think he's pretty knowledgeable, but he forgets a lot of stuff he should follow up on. He forgot to write a prescription for me he said he would, and here I am waiting 10 days later, having already called in once to remind them. And my first visit was for a second opinion, and the rather rude receptionist told me as I signed in, "Oh, you're the one I didn't do the paperwork for to get your records transferred." Even though they'd had weeks to handle that. That doesn't exactly make for a great "second opinion," when all the doctor has to go on is me, talking, and not tons of tests and stuff.

Dr. Bouknight is amazing, genius they say, but his head nurse is extremely rude and condescending. She answers every question with a very snide response that sounds like legal jargon to keep from getting sued. "That is not the typical side affect of this medication." She makes the experience very unpleasant.

Dr. Bouknight use to be a good doctor, then he began to schedule 60 patients a day, The wait is about 3 hours, then he spends 2 minutes with you. The staff calls the day before an appointment to inform you, there are no more authorizations, to make you reschedule 2 months out. My insurance has been charged for an EKG I NEVER RECEIVED. This office deserves no stars! Don't waste your time with his ghetto nurse/Assistant!
