This office is great when it comes to fixing problems in a timely manner. The nurses are always willing to answer any and all questions they have. The front desk girls always have a smile on their faces and you can tell they love their job. I would recommend any of my family or friends to Dr.Knowles.

Office staff short, unfriendly and unhelpful. Was started on new medication and when Office had a problem billing insurance was told they couldn't speak to me about side effects of new medication and exacerbation of disease. Highly unethical and rude. Upon complaint discharged from care. Now taking new medication without care or guidance from prescribing doctor.

My overall experience at Dr Knowles office was great. His office staff is always willing to help, and the billing office goes the extra mile to get payment from insurance before sending me a bill. And even after sending the bill, they are always willing to work with you to accept payments.
