I have been going to Dr Kight for most of my life and eventually got a job working with him everyday. He is the most caring, loving, super intelligent, kind hearted person I’ve ever met. He treats every patient as if they were his very own family. You’ll never find any physician like Dr Kight. And the staff, well they are extremely knowledgeable and so wonderful. And the new office is Gorgeous. Check out the beautiful painting throughout the office. Some of them are Dr Kights work?? . He’s so clever and good at everything he does. He’s my dear friend and Dr for life;-)

Highly recommend Dr. Kight. I have been a patient since 1998 and Dr. Kight has performed many skin cancer surgeries on me through the years. He, along with his staff and nurses are very caring and trustworthy. Convenient location, short office wait and accepts insurance too. Hoping he never retires!

Dr. Kight and his staff are great. He is a straight up Dr. and I have the most respect and faith in him. There is hardly any wait time and he gets right to your issue in terms that can be understood. There was a time that he didn’t take the health ins that I had. Boy was I disappointed in the Dr.’s that I visited during this time. I let his office know how dissapointed I was and they worked hard to get signed with my company. I refer everyone I know to him.

I have been a patient since about 1999...Dr KIght was thorough and explained what he found and removed. Have been a patient since 1999 even thought I live somewhere else now. It is a long drive, but I would not trust anyone else. Frankie Michaelis
