Dr. Knight's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Knight "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 half of our time is spent diagnosing and treating skin cancer. I currently serve as the chief of dermatology for Orlando Health. I am a board member of the Florida Society of Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery. I am the past-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."
