Dr. Knox helped save my husband's life!! We had a appointment which we thought was a stomach issue. Dr. Knox recognized that wasn't the problem at all. (Husband had a major infections due to a previous surgery by another Dr.) that caused his heart valve to have to be replaced. Dr. knox looked at the whole body not just his specialty. I would trust him and recommend him highly. He even visited us after he quickly had my husband admitted into the hospital with an hour of his findings. TRU

Awful! He did not even care to figure out what was wrong with me and said I was fine! He said 25% of people that come in and get test done turn out OK so he thought that it would be best for me to just not do anything ! I told him I just paid him all this money he better try and figure something out ! I DO NOT recommend him!!!
