This was our first visit; therefore, this shall be from the perspective as a new patient. Office is very clean and presentable. The front staff greeted us upon entry and were very friendly. We waited no more than 10 mins however we completed and faxed in paperwork prior to appt which may have helped. Intake nurse was very friendly and thorough with medical history. Rooms are clean and appear updated. Dr. arrived promptly. Made eye contact, listened with intent. When he came in, and this is important to us, it was apparent he read the notes and knew the purpose of our visit. Nothing is worse than spend time speaking to the nurse and having her take down a history to only have the doctor come in and ask the same questions. He did not rush our visit and spent time discussing his thoughts regarding possible treatment plans. We go back for follow up and result shortly. Btw, so far the medication and treatment plan prescribed is showing great promise.

Very thorough. Found a very early melanoma on my forehead that is easily treatable. Early detection is a good thing. Thank you Dr. Knight.

Set an appt for Cosmetic Dermatology with the Dr.s PAsst; was early for the appt, waited 45 minutes past my appt time, to meet with a 25 year old administrator/salesperson who didn't know the first thing about what she was doing and didn't ask me a single question; I asked to see the Dr. PA who came in with an attitude and kept saying the treatment I wanted was "up to me"- I told her I didn't know what my options were, the cost, what I could expect from the potential treatment- was told again it

Dr Knight is an excellent doctor who I have visited many times. His examinations are thorough and he always spends time explaining his observations. I would highly recommend Dr Knight.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Knight to my friends and family. I’ve had extensive skin damag due to overexposure to the Florida sun. Doctor Knight has performed 6 separate surgeries on my face and arm with great results.I had been seeing another dermatologist but felt I wasn’t getting the care that I needed. Dr. Knight is very friendly and has a great staff.

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!
