I did not feel comfortable with Dr McKnight. I came in with a specific problem and I don't have a prescribed care for solution. I did have a "most likely" description by the doctor and was told the lab would not necessarily have a positive response. I pretty much was accused of most likely having a herpes condition--but I have never had an outbreak. I did explain that I had cervical cancer as result of herpes, but was told that was a different species. I still am in pain. I still have a lump. But I have not received any communication other than he lab report on Saturday saying the sample was negative. No RX per Dr. McNight's comment that even with a negative she would most likely recommend a prescription. My confidence in Dr. McNight is not very high. I've called my gyne for more help. (She was completely booked when I called last week for an appointment, unfortunately.)

I found Dr. McKnight as well as several other NW ObGyn dismissive, condescending, patronizing, and cold. I came prepared with some questions, but felt like the doctor was more eager to leave the room than to listen.
