I always appreciate Dr Knight, he is always cordial and in the present moment with the patient- I don't feel rushed. He seems to have the patients best interest at heart as well. I have been going here for almost 14 years or so. I tried another Dr closer to home, it did not compare to the experience I get with this Dr Knight and his office staff. I am ALWAYS pleased with my results.

I'm a smart a$$ old lady who knows too much, that makes me difficult. Yet being talked to as a person not an annoyance makes me feel better about the care I receive. Dr. knight has a calm intellectual way to cut through the crap. He knows of what he speaks, and cares. He also looks at treatments that will work, that can fit your budget. When you present with face rot that the masks have created, you wear a mask to cover it up. He knew exactly what to do. May Dr. Knight live long and help many many many more people even an old smart a$$.

Dr. Knight and his staff are very professional. I was a patient for several years at another local Dermatologist and never saw the doctor. Dr. Knight is very personable and always personally tends to my exams. I have highly recommended Dr. Knight to family and friends.

Absolutely. My wife and I have gone to Dr. Knight since 2013. He is an outstanding dermatologist, and he recently added Dr. Steven Eilers, a Mohs-trained dermatologist to the practice. Dr. Knight recently found a squamous cell cancer on the helix of my ear. Dr. Eilers successfully removed the cancer, removing both skin and cartilage until the margins were clear. Follow up has been outstanding.
