One of the most thorough, involved, caring cardiologist I could have prayed for. Great listener. Bedside manner is superior. My doctor over 10 years. Saved my life. Can't give a higher recommendation than this.

I have been extraordinarily disappointed with his practice for several months. I find this office to be unprofessional for many reasons. For example, I was scheduled to have a major surgery in a couple of days. However, Dr Knox interfered with my plans by refusing to clear my appointment/surgery because I didn't have an echo cardiogram. Mind you, I went to my appointment in August this year and the technician cancelled it because she was not feeling well. Therefore, I am extremely upset .

I am using DR. Knox for weight loss and he is very accomplished in nutrition and preventing illnesses. I lost 70 pounds with his help while still eating a lot of food and I use him for weight maintenance. I thank him for his passion for nutrition and healthy lifestyle.
