I'd love to see my doctor forever but I'll work with him till he retires

May 11, 2020 3:13 PM

always listens and shares his opinions

May 2, 2020 2:08 PM

it was a different experience talking to him over the telephone, but it was very through.

April 20, 2020 9:30 AM

this is the first time that we both wore masks to protect ourselves from possible viruses. I had a cold, no fever. A very professional visit.

April 20, 2020 9:30 AM

March 20, 2020 6:19 AM

Sometimes Dr. Knox is behind schedule, but that is OK. He never rushes a visit & I appreciate that; we think he is wonderful.

March 16, 2020 11:32 PM

It was a good visit. I like Dr. Knox.

March 16, 2020 11:32 PM

The office personnel are nicer in person. Sometimes on the phone they are very rude. It is hard to talk to the Dr. when you are sick or need a perscription. The office staff act like you are a bother and they control things, and the Dr. can't be bothered by a sick patient. I've been with Dr. Knox over 35 years and I don't like the office girls telling me I can't talk to my doctor today when I'm sick or I need him. That's not their decision to make!!!! I need a doctor that is there when I need him!!

March 16, 2020 5:44 PM

My experience with this provider and staff was excellent.

March 15, 2020 5:58 AM

March 2, 2020 4:47 PM

A non rushed exam.

February 21, 2020 5:22 AM

Dr. Knox always makes me feel like I am his only patient and takes the time to exam me and never hurries me along - this is an excellent trait in a doctor in this hurry up society.

February 21, 2020 5:22 AM

I have been a patient of Dr. Knox for many years and have never had a bad experience with him - I hope he never retires -

February 18, 2020 11:38 AM

December 16, 2019 5:35 PM

I WISH HE COULD GAVE ME INFORMATION ABOUT NEUROPATHY; BUT HE DID SAY I NEED TO SEE A NEUROLOGIST WHICH MAY TAKE TWO OR THREE MONTHS. I GUESS HE DID HIS BEST TO INFORM ME ABOUT MY CONDITION.

I ALWAYS LIKED TO SEE MY PROVIDER ; HE IS A GREAT DOCTOR.

December 14, 2019 12:24 PM

Staff seems good at avoiding timely appointments. I rarely been able to schedule appointment when needed. This has forced me to seek help elsewhere.

December 9, 2019 2:12 PM

I have had only good experiences with Dr. Knox and his office personnel.

December 7, 2019 11:48 AM

I really like Dr. Knox and have been a patient of his for many years. The ONLY thing I find a little odd is that he does not make eye contact with me. When he is talking directly to me, he closes his eyes. I find this a little odd but it does not bother me AT ALL. In fact, it is kind of humorous.

December 7, 2019 11:48 AM

Dr. Knox always asks lots of questions and tries to elicit any medical concerns. I never feel rushed in seeing him. He also doesn't keep me waiting which I appreciate very much.

November 27, 2019 2:43 PM

I don't believe that he is thorough enough.

November 27, 2019 2:43 PM

The nurse was very impersonal and my appointment was at 1:00pm, I arrived at 12:49 and checked in. I was called into the office at 1:40pm, Dr. Knox came in at 1:56pm. No apology for the hour wait at all, plus I do not believe that he was as thorough as he should have been. Plus they had incorrect information on my medication list which I have no idea where the information came from.

November 16, 2019 11:00 PM

good experience

November 16, 2019 11:00 PM

Took good amount of time with me to discuss and answer all my questions, concerns, and how to treat my condition.

November 15, 2019 11:52 AM

Very good.

November 13, 2019 9:01 AM

Dr. Knox is a knowledgeable, trustworthy physician.

November 11, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Knox has been my PCP for many years now. I trust him completely with my health. He is very knowledgeable, personable and addresses my concerns.
