It was such a great visit! Dr. McKnight was very pleasant and enthusiastic about her work. I was a new patientand it was if I had been her patient for years.

She can seem like a quick and pleasant wind that's in and out the door in literally 5 mins. If you're having issues make notes on your phone while you can think clearly to discuss with her otherwise she'll be outthe door before you can really get the nerve to ask questions or formulate a thought. Never imply you think you have an idea of what your symptoms are pointing to. Just put your symptoms out there and let her ask follow up questions. I felt a bit shut down when I expressed I had done "research". I could understand how that could be annoying. I didn't go to medical school, but if I'm having issues I only see my Dr. For 5 mins every 365 days so I'm going to try to figure it out. Just sayin'

This was the best OB-GYN visit that I can recall I've ever had. Dr. McKnight is so personable and informative. I feel like I've been her patient for years. I had lingering questions from previous doctors and she put my mindat ease and gave detailed explanations. I'm so happy I found her on ZocDoc

Efficient would be the best word to describe my appointment. The receptionist greeted me and was prepared with paperwork, I was taken in at my appointment time, the nurse was expedient and so was the doctor. I can see how somepeople might be put off and call this uncaring, but the doctor did not seem hurried or annoyed when I discussed some concerns with her so I did not find it rude, and appreciated the timeliness.

This was my first and my last visit with Dr. McKnight. The wait was long and the visit was very rushed. She did not take a single moment to ask me my concerns or even questions about my history (that wereindicated on the new patient form). I was very shocked, especially being that I was a new patient. She literally walked into the room (I was sitting on the examination bed, backing her) and placed a stethoscope on my back before I even I had the chance to say hello. She proceeded to do a breast exam then a pap and left. It was disappointing, after going through so much to book an appointment with her. I felt like a lot was missing. The appointment was ran like a strict business meeting. Never again.

She was very vague in explaining things to me. I felt like she did not listen to what I had to say. I was having a birth control conversation and she did not really talk me through the options. She providedone option and was not very detailed when explaining it.

She was very nice and informative.. I came in for my yearly but had some questions about having another baby, the nurse before me said I may need to schedule another appointment for that however, when Dr. Mcknight came in shestill took 10 minutes of her time to talk to me about all my concerns and even provide some recommendations. I think I've found my new ob/gyn, she was amazing and gentle too!

One of the ladies who checks you in clearly need a attitude adjustment. She is/was my 1st impression of the office and if I had to go on her alone I would not return. However the nurses and the doctor wasreally good and made up for her unprofessional attuned.
