She doesn't take insurance, doesn't like EHR's s so leaves her patients without good care cordination and it is hard to get your lab results or see your records, is very political and kind of snotty to my wife.

So thankful I have found a physician that spends time with me, listening instead of typing on a computer. I never feel rushed during an appointment and I feel that I have Dr McKnights full attention. Dr McKnight has gone above and beyond with my care. Dr McKnight and staff are utmost professionals. I am so thankful she is my Rheumatologist!

I WAS a patient of this doctor for nearly 9 years and today because my health card did not work, she refused to see me even telling her office receptionist that I needed to reschedule?!?! Really?! I think when a patient has longevity with a doctor, my care should come first. I have NEVER missed an appointment. BEWARE that she will openly discuss her political beliefs which I found TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE! I have already found a new rheumy who comes highly recommended by my primary doctor!

She really cares about her patients.
