Dr. James Knight, MD
I'm a native Orlandoan. I came back home after my training to help my fellow Central Floridians care for their skin and manage the melanoma/skin cancer epidemic that disproportionately affects us and our loved ones. I have specialized training in cosmetic laser skin surgery, and I've traveled the world training others on these techniques, but most of our time is spent diagnosing and treating skin cancer. I currently serve as the chief of dermatology for Orlando Health. I am the president of the Central Florida Society of Dermatology. We believe in a team approach to your care and our primary goals are to get it right and to make sure that you're completely happy with your care.

I liked Dr Knight very much until I went to a surgeon recently for another condition I am having and he noticed the rash under my breast. Which I was told by Dr Knight just to put Athletic foot powder. Come to find out it is a Fungal and before I can have surgery it must be cleared up. So much for trusting the foot powder and Dr Knight. Once you see Dr Knight you see other members of his staff, which after having skin cancer I would rather see him in person.

As a healthcare professional myself I am very picky about my doctors, especially if they are going to be doing surgery on my face! I have had 4 different skin cancers removed by this Dr and he has always done an excellent job, minimal scarring, minimal pain and no reoccurrence of the cancer. I have recommended him to many of my colleagues even my own sister!
