Let me say this, if wasn't for Dr. McKnight & Dr. Robichaux, I wouldn't even bother continuing my medical care at Midcity Medicine Clinic. Those two are phenomenal physicians.

My parents have used Dr. McKnight for the last few years even though we've had to travel an hour and a half from my parents home to see her. Primarily we went to her because of my parents being elderly. Although in the later years we have seen residents and then seen Dr McKnight to review what the residents did, Dr. McKnight has always been very forthcoming with information and very open to questions. The residents are generally very thorough.
