Dr. John T Knight of the hand and wrist institute now located in TX is RIDICULOUS!! 1. His office billed me for x-rays that I provided to them. They were detailed x-rays completed at another doctors office which I provided to Dr. Kinght's staff 2. Dr. knight examined my injuries for less than 1 minute. Yes you read that correctly, ONE MINUTE. He was in my room for less than 5 minutes total. 3. He was all too willing to operate despite his record breaking exam 4. The bill for his 5 minute office visit was exorbitant 5. Despite my showing up early for the appointment, I had to wait almost one hour. What I can tell you is that Dr. John T Knight is a thief, immoral, and a snake.

BEWARE! While completing the paperwork prior to my appointment, Dr. Knight makes each patient sign an agreement promising not to bring frivolous litigation against him, and only retain a board certified hand surgeon as an expert witness if a lawsuit is filed. Essentially, Dr. Knight makes the patient agree to never sue him regardless of the outcome, as it is extremely rare and improbable that a board certified hand surgeon will testify against another doctor of the same standard. Who in their right mind starts a professional relationship out this way? Dr. Knight claims that a doctor may suffer "irreparable harm" from litigation. WHAT ABOUT THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF THE PATIENT? After cancelling my appointment, I received a call from one of Dr. Knight's staff members demanding a reason for the cancellation. He sounds like such a great person!

Dr. Knight's skilled surgical team were absolutely fantastic! At 68, my carpel-tunnel issues had left me in constant crippling pain. The problem had escalated to the point of disrupting my sleep 6 out of 7 nights with shooting, throbbing pains in both lower arms!! BUT, immediately after Dr. Knight operated on each wrist, (right in March 2012, left in May) the pain was gone and has not returned! Additionally, I was able to use each hand within a week after each surgery! Dr. KNIGHT is #1 !!!

In a nutshell, I wouldn't want anyone else as a hand specialist/hand surgeon. Dr. Knight is straightforward and professional.
