From the moment I met Dr. McKnight it was obvious that he was different from the other providers that I had seen. He is absolutely brilliant as a provider, and even more so he is a truly caring, compassionate provider. I am beyond thankful that he has been my physician, and while I credit God for saving my life, I know that part of Dr. McKnight was part of God's plan in doing so. I am so thankful to him and his wonderful staff, who have gone above and beyond their call of duty since day one!

Dr McKnight is the most calm, caring, physician I have ever met! He will spend as much time with you as is needed to uncover the problem. He isn’t afraid of someone who researches possible solutions on the internet like some Drs are. I feel that I personally know my body better than anybody and I like to be my own advocate when it comes to my health. Dr Mcknight encourages my research and dedication to making sure I am as healthy as I can be! He is the BEST dr I have ever had!

My Dr visits came with a surge and I have been to a Dr more in the last year than I have ever been,, but I thank the good Lord that Dr McKnight was there to help me and after a pile of test finally decided that it was my cholesterol medicine that was causing my whole body to hurt all over. Thanks Dr McKnight.

Dr. McKnight makes each patient feel like they are an individual and not just a number. He spends quality time listening to each and every concern and symptom. He provides educated guidance and advice and even pulls up articles to back his reasoning on a certain topic. Dr. McKnight is amazing! His staff is overly helpful with concerns and scheduling appointments with outside offices for specialists, etc. Thank you for caring!

Dr. McKnight has shown a determination about following through on any negative or suspicious test results. In my personal case, elevated calcium levels led to the detection of a serious problem of arterial blockage. Dr. McKnight's persistence in obtaining multiple test results confirmed his suspicions and culminated in a quadruple bypass that probably saved my life. I was asymptomatic of any outward symptoms.This astounded the cardiologist who cathetorized me at Dr.Mcknight's recommendation.

He takes the time to hear what I'm saying instead of trying to push symptoms on me. I feel like he cares, and unfortunately I've been to a bunch of Dr's that could care less or have made me feel that way. He also help me be diagnosed and didn't give up...he investigated until we found an answer! Love these people!

On going in for an appointment, Dr. McKnight identified my declining cardiac health. His prompt response which led to EMS transport to a local hospital, saved my life. A stress test and cardiac catheterization confirmed Dr. McKnight's diagnosis. A heart attack and death was imminent. After a quadruple bypass I am on my way to recovery. My family and I can't thank him enough.

Dr. McKnight is a wonderful, caring and knowledgable physician. In a time of great need, I sought his help as a new patient. He listened, evaluated me, even sought input from colleagues in specialized areas, and recommended treatment while always considering my thoughts and concerns. I am so very grateful for the care he provided. His office staff and nurses are kind, patient and attentive. I truly don't think I would have my health back without Dr. McKnight!

Dr. McKnight has been the primary care physician for my 83 year old Uncle since June 2014. After watching how competently, compassionately and thoroughly Dr. McKnight took care of my Uncle, I decided I wanted Dr. McKnight to be my primary care physician also. I became Dr. McKnight's patient in October 2015 and could not be happier with the care and treatment I have received from Dr. McKnight and his staff. Highly recommended. A+++
