Dr. Knight took time to listen. His exam was through. He did more than check ears and throat and give a quick listen to my heart and lungs.

Dr. Knight is always so patient and takes his time with me. It is clear that he takes his role in his patients lives seriously, and I would recommend him to anyone. I came from a practice where I didn't feel comfortable, and had some bad experiences, and when I met Dr. Knight, he restored my faith in my PCP. Thank you, Dr. Knight.

Dr. Knight is EXCELLENT! My virtual visit was wonderful. My "very poor" rating pertains to the Cleveland Clinic's CENTRALIZED PHONE and SCHEDULING SYSTEM based om Cleveland --I live approx 45 miles away! It very much gives the impression that CClinic wants to keep everyone "at arms' length." Per a winter Akron Beacon Journal article, physicians also do not care for CC's phone system, either. Doctors and their staffs should be available with DIRECT ACCESS regardless of having the MY chart option. I feel bad for older seniors who are technology-challenged.

Dr Knight should have patients knocking down his door to get an appointment with him, he's a good and caring doctor, who for me at least, went above and beyond the norms for today's doctors. Without divulging any private details, he PESONALLY called me to check on my well-being, HIM, not his staff, I need say no more, THANK YOU DR. KNIGHT!!!
