Outstanding doctor! He took all the time necessary to make sure that I fully understood all my options. Once I decided to move forward with my hip replacement everything went just as he said it would. I have not run into too many doctors like Dr. Knight.

Two years ago I had my second knee replacement surgery with Dr. Knight. Today I write to thank him since I can play tennis again thanks to him. He is a wonderful doctor, very professional, caring and a great human being. Before my knee surgery I could barely walk. Today after playing tennis for 3 hours I can say that I am fully recovered. It took time to recover but I can say that I am back to have a normal life. My surgery was in John Muir Medical center in Walnut Creek. I highly recommend him.

Ali in danville ,Ca – Aug 30, 2016
Dr. Knight is very knowledgeable, professional and educated as well as being a well known surgeon that performed a hip athroscopy on me recently. He is kind, caring and sat with me going over every concern I had before surgery. He took the time to answer all my questions and explained situations and advised follow up care in a patient and personal way. He is beyond humane in his approach and every time I see him he puts me at ease. I would highly recommend him for orthopedic care.
