Wonderful doctor!
Dr Knight has helped elevate my back pain for the past 10 years without major surgery. She is very caring and extremely competent.

Panorama can’t monitor itself and schedules appointments so closely that the waiting time is over 45 minutes. Dr. Knight didn’t honor my appointment and sent in a PA to do her job. Not acceptable, Panorama.

I have seen Dr. Knight since the beginning of 2021 …She has always really listened to what I had to say …..To my concerns and my fears ….she takes lots of notes as you’re talking and she explains things in layman‘s terms ….. If your in the hospital she is just as great !!….. Very caring very professional very down to earth! ….. I highly recommend her and her staff weather on the Internet, on the phone or in person they are all great and caring people.

I would not go back to see Dr. Knight! I was recommended by her PA to receive an epidural steroid shot in my neck. I had never talked to Dr. Knight and she did not return phone calls before the procedure. When she entered the room prior to my procedure she did not introduce herself. I had to ask if she was the Dr. I proceeded with some questions asking about my MRI and what she thought about my results. She responded with, "You will know in a few weeks." I asked her about side effects and she responded "You are ruminating and need to ask questions" I stopped talking to her at that point. There has been no follow up from her since the procedure.

I had an extremely frustrating experience with Panorama. I had four appointments. First one was cancelled. Second one Dr. Knight showed up 1.5 hours after my appointment was scheduled. Third appointment Dr. Knight showed up unprepared, without my records and therefore asked to reschedule. Finally my last appointment, Dr. Knight did not show up for at all, nor was I informed that she would miss the appointment until a half hour after the appointment was scheduled. I don't know that I've ever felt more taken advantage of. After all that I never even received a diagnosis. There are a lot of positive reviews, so hopefully my experience is not the norm, but I do notice a sizeable amount of patients with similar complaints. I wish I would have paid better attention to those reviews before wasting my money.

Dr Knight is only concerned about acquiring new patients and not so much interested in the “caring for them” aspect of the job title. Therefore, I cannot, with any good faith, recommend this doctor to anyone!! If your PCP referred you to her, save yourself a lot of time and problems by asking for a new referral ASAP. Karen Knight will work on her schedule only, only out of the Golden office (unless an errand causes her to be close to another office and she will act like she is doing you a favor by being there), and shows no empathy towards her patients (yet will complain that her sporadic schedule is due to debilitating pain). P.S. Amanda at the front desk is great and is just caught between the problems and the public, so, when you have problems with Dr Knight, please don’t take it out on her.

It was only my first visit (with likely many more to follow), but I’m already impressed. Her explanations were thorough and she set reasonable expectations without being a dream crusher. I definitely have hope, which after 6 years of dealing with chronic pain, I had almost none left.
