Dr. Knight's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Knight "I have been practicing for 18 years and can't believe how fast time has gone. I took over my practice from David Anzaldua and it was the first Integrative practice in Peoria before it was cool. Patients tell me that the biggest reason they came to my practice was for my diagnostic skills and because I never give up trying to find a cause and a successful treatment. Puzzles don't scare me and in fact are what make me look forward to every day in practice. But I also am a firm believer that prescription medications are not the answer for everything. Common sense is becoming also a proven fact that the pillars of health are good nutrition from whole, clean food, plenty of water, regular daily exercise and good sound sleep. However, I am also human and understand that life can get in the way but we just need to get back on track. Our physical health is also just a part of our health and our spiritual, emotional and mental health are just as important. My training has been very focused on holistic health and I'm also a member of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine. Environment plays a huge role in what we're exposed to and even effects how are genes will carry out their instructions. You can't pick your parents but you are also a unique individual and can overcome more than you think. I prefer to be positive and find negativity to be toxic but I can lend an ear when someone is in a dark place and try to help them see there is still hope. I am interested in gardening organically, edible landscaping and I'm also a master gardener intern. I love running, biking and swimming and even completed an Ironman. I have a wonderful husband, daughter and step son that also keep me busy and we often go to Chicago on the weekends where we have a condo near Wrigley Field, the home of our beloved Cubs. Recently, I've been learning art from Jeanna Fearon, a local artist and art therapist. She has taught me appreciation for whatever your artistic expression may be and also how to let go and just express yourself. This was very therapeutic for me after my father passed away at almost 98 years of age in 2013 and my mother's health has began to decline. I'm an only child and will not have an easy time when my mom passes but enjoy her continued presence in my life and hope she'll be here still for awhile. She currently lives across the street and turns 90 next year. She's a tough woman despite her small size and has a solid faith in God that serves us all well. My biggest concerns for the future of medicine is how rapidly we've had to assimilate the electronic medical record system and the separation of office and hospital medicine and how that will all have to integrate to still care for people and help them efficiently and hopefully improve their health not deter it."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Knight "My philosophy of care is also called "feminist medicine" but actually has nothing to do with your gender. It means that instead of telling my patients what to do, I educate them as best as I can and try to understand their unique needs and then we make decisions together. In addition, my style of medicine is to try the least risky and invasive approaches first and then go from there. So if you present with an acute musculoskeletal injury (like back pain) I would recommend chiropractic or therapy first and consider the least addictive medicines if still necessary and if that isn't working we try procedures but try to avoid surgery unless absolutely necessary. "

Dr. Knight Says:

I suspect many of the less than excellent reviews came during our transition to EMR.  At the same time discovered that my staff were not making the transition and not helping with patient care. In 2010  I had to let everyone go and start over. I have consistently heard in the past 4 years rave reviews of my nurse Jessica that could draw blood out of a rock and my medical assistant Ian that is so efficient and professional


Patient Comments (13)

I wasted 3 months of my time and health on this dr. She wanted labs prior to my appointment and they were not covered by my insurance. I tried to get the cost for them over the next month's time before the lab appointment. They never got me that info so I had to cancel the lab appointment. I never...more

I’m livid. I went in there for back pain as a last resort to try and get a medical card for pain. I end up leaving with $419 worth of lab test on my thyroid and gosh knows what else. I never asked for these tests nor when they had me come in did they tell me what they were for. I feel taken...more

Dr Knight is extremely knowledgeable. The only obstacle would be getting an appointment in a timely manner. Often times weeks out. Perhaps too many patients as they do not seem to be able to accommodate the patients they currently have. Receptionist can be short at times.

Unhappy! I was a previous patient. I was put on a month waiting list. My condition worsened. When I saw Dr. Knight, she talked about her medical problems, her mother's medical problems and gluten free diets but no help for me. I took myself to a prompt care facility after her visit. Prompt care...more
