Middlesboro, KY |
Dr. Knuckles has been my dermatologist for 25 years. She has treated me for alopecia aerate, rash, and found basal cell carcinoma on routine visit. Love her.
Maynardville, TN |
Scripts lack all info to be filled. Repeatedly. They won't call them in for you. Staff promises to call and straighten it out but don't. Repeatedly. Staff promise to call you back but don't. Repeatedly.
in Corbin, KY |
Rude and clueless. If you have an appointment make sure to pack a lunch because you'll be in the waiting room for 3 hours or more while the staff makes inappropriate comments about people and current events.
Corbin, Ky |
I've only been to the Corbin office. The wait time is 2-4 hrs. Other patients were complaining of their wait, asking if they'd been forgotten. Waiting room has church pews & u are nearly stacked on 1 another. U must pay for all services up front. If she does an unexpected procedure while you are being seen (suspicious areas removed/biopsies/etc) u are expected to pay that addt'l copay before u leave. She seems experienced but talks so fast that it is difficult retain anything said.
in Berea, KY |
I absolutely trust and recommend Dr. Knuckles. I've been a nurse for 20+ years and she knows what she's doing. Very knowledgable. She does seem rushed most of the time but, she has always gotten the correct diagnosis/treatment for me.
Richmond, KY |
Too rushed, insensitive to patient privacy, still waiting for biopsy results for procedures done 7 weeks ago..
