After seeing 4 or 5 other specialists that could never figure out what was going on, I was finally lucky enough to get in to see Dr. KcKnight. She listens, she cares, she takes time to figure out what is really wrong with you. With all this crappy insurance problems out there Dr. McKnight has a very fair cash price deal so I can still see her and not have to have a very costly monthly insurance premium. Best Rheumatologist around. - Jennifer M.

Dr McKnight is amazing! She helped me get my life back. She is very attentive and spends time with you. She really listens to all of my medical complaints. Her staff has been very accommodating and friendly. I am so lucky to finally find a doctor who genuinely cares.

A highly professional MD that truly cares for her patients. Very easy to communicate with and follows up accordingly. She is available when required and acts on requests immediately. Simply stated, she is fantastic and I would gladly recommend her to anyone.

Saw McKnight, found RA, plus. A very high prednisone MG amount was the recommendation. 5 2" gained up to 180 lbs. Also had biologics. Wanted off the prednisone, she said I would not be able to walk. Glad, a great family Doctor, wing off prednisone. My RA is Bad 500 +) I WALK Other Rheumatology Dr. 1 clueless other Dr. contract cancelled, Baptist. Went back to McKnight, prednisone, I said NO, she has cancelled me said I was rude. Can't find a RA Dr. being OSTRACIZED DO NOT GO! My Opinion

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!
