Knost missed TWO blockages; staff told pt. to keep taking anti-nausea meds when pt replied he was vomiting them. BLOCKAGE even showed at treatment start--both times. Pt. called to express concern about 2nd blockage (he had to vomit green seaweed for 6 weeks 1st time,so knew symptoms) Knost told him to take some maalox!! BOTH times OTHERS doctors intervened to show blockages. Knost hates questions. Staff dithered and blamed patient for being uncompliant; NOT the case. K suspsended care THREE times due to his own errors: 1) severe overdose of chemo drug; skin erupted. Knost said, "Oh, dosage miscalculated." 2) K. Gave patient 2 days to decide to do an experimental study--only 2 days because K was going out of town but didn't tell pt. 3 weeks of retesting with no care. When pt not eligible, no back up plan, and had to wait another week 'til K returned to decide on trtmnt. 3) Surgery required so no trtment. Lack of treatment killed patient not the disease. There's more! AVOID him!!!!

Knowledgeable but unapproachable. Not much of a listener.

I had a very rare form of cancer and after my surgery I was lucky enough to get Dr. Knost. As Doctor's go, this man is simply outstanding. As a person he is concerned and genuinely a nice man.
