It was great. His office staff was able to get me an appointment quickly and I really appreciated that. I had a bilateral steroid injection on my lower back. The procedure went very well. Dr Knighton and his team are great. He explained everything he was doing as he did it. One of the ladies in the room even gave me her hand for comfort. There was a little discomfort but nothing terrible. I highly recommend Dr Knighton and his staff!

I LOVE Dr. Knighton & his staff! I've seen a few other pain specialists over the years, but Dr. Knighton is hands down the best! Been his PT for 4 yrs now. :) He can come across as a bit cold at first, but once you get to know him, he's actually a really nice guy who does genuinely care a lot about his PT's. I also appreciate that he's a straight-forward kinda guy, and that as long as you vocalize what's going on with you, he'll listen and do everything in his power to help reduce your pain! :)
