It was not good at all. He performed a valve replacement surgery on my father. He never spoke to us about my Father's surgery after when we were in the intensive care unit. My Father passed away 6 days after his surgery in the hospital and he never came to us one time. 2 weeks later his office mailed my Mother 2 valve replacement cards with my Dad's name on it. The office didn't even know he passed away. Terrible.

Dr. Knight has performed two heart valve replacement surgeries for me. My care and his treatment of me for both were exemplary! I would highly recommend him for any heart surgery on any one as he also performed surgery on other family members with other positive outcomes.
