Patient Comments (6)

Mother went in for review of a MRI, Dr. Knox came in and spent 2 minutes telling her she had arthritis in her knee and bulging disk in her back, then said "you need physical therapy" and that was it. She tried to ask him multiple questions, all which he answered in two words or less while trying to leave the room. POOR, POOR bedside manner. You cannot just hide behind a kind word and smile. You actually need to educate your patients and spend more time with them- rather than trying to get out as

Excellent doctor. He can come and go in the exam room pretty quickly so be prepared. Do your research ahead of time so you know what questions you should ask, OR, just tell him you need everything explained in detail. He will. He's a very kind and caring man.

Talented surgeon who repaired both of my shoulders and I am doing great now. He is smart, specific and clear in his instructions and after care. I have great confidence in him.
in Mountain Home, Arkansas |
I had arthroscopic shoulder surgery on my left shoulder and for reasons unknown, the shoulder froze. Scar tissue had built up and I was in a lot of pain. Doctor Knox went back in and cut the scar tissue out freeing up the shoulder. I guess the other option would be to put a person under and forcibly manipulate the shoulder which could again freeze up. My shoulder is much better and I recommend him.
in Horseshoe Bend, AR |
Dr. Knox is an incredible diagnostician and surgeon. I trust his opinions. He is honest, begins with a conservative approach to ailments and is a great communicator. My husband, my mother-in-law and I have all been patients for various issues over the years. Between the three of us, all experiences have been great and all surgeries have been a success.

The only way I can describe Dr. Knox is gracious professionalism, and you can expect that every time!
