Dr. McKnight's bio

This content was provided by Dr. McKnight "Life has a way of taking unusual twists and turns. At that time, Rev. McKnight thought serving as a pastor in Kentucky would be his area of service to others. As it turned out, the pastorate was a steppingstone to a long military career as a family and preventive medicine physician. With a passion to help others enjoy optimal health - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - Dr. McKnight felt led to create The Emerald Coast Health Institute as a 21st century primary care system of health. Dr. McKnight is committed to the four pillars of The Institute. They are compassion, communication, competence, and cost savings. Compassion - All patients will receive a caring respect by the staff at all times. Members of the Institute will know they are priority #1. Our commitment to the member is 100% at all times. Communication - The Institute will work tirelessly to keep the lines of communication open both ways. Patients are able to communicate with The Institute 24/7 using their personal portal, text message, or directly calling Dr. McKnight after clinic hours. Competence - Board certified in two specialties, completing a fellowship in faculty development, two masters degrees, along with a doctorate of medicine, competence and academic excellence are the standard by which patient care will be delivered.
