While Dr Armstong is my doctor, Dr McKnight was able to answer all my questions and pick up where Dr Armstrong left off. Dr McKnight is extremely knowledgeable and I learned much more about my blocked bladder conditions and symptoms to look out for to figure out if issues are gynecological or urologic. SO helpful.

I visited Dr. McKnight for answers because I was concerned about my health however I left the appointment feeling confused, let down and with even more questions. Dr. McKnight had alot to say to me but she did not give me the time to ask questions. I am a young adult, I felt like she took advantage of that. She barely let me speak. She told me things I already was informed about from my previous doctor. She never examined me. I could tell she just didn't care. I am mainly upset because due to this virus I had to wait 6 months to receive an appointment from her. Yet I still have the same and even more questions that need to be answered. I will not come back to her ever.
