Dr. Knowles is the best Primary Care Doctor I have ever had . This Doc is so understanding , caring and is truly a good man. This last visit I was nervous because after the holidays my blood sugar was up some and I felt somewhat discouraged but Dr. Knowles was so kind and helpful and set me back on track without making me feel like a failure . Give this Doc a shot not just because he is so good but because he honestly wants everyone to be and feel their very best . The office is so friendly !

Very competent and courteous. His treatment procedures worked. He is into exercise and healthy living and helped me avoid surgery. He really understood my problems and provided effective solutions.

I would not ever recommend him. He lacks both ethical and moral values. Dr, Knowles divulged private confidential medical information of several of his patients to me. Find a another doctor.
