In and out of the hospital with the doctors there desperately trying to get a hold of Dr. Knight, we come to find out she is avoiding them and doesn't give a**** about me at all. Dr. Knight is not the endocrinologist you should see if you want a doctor who cares.
I have been seeing Debbie Knight for some time now and have found her to be a very professional person who is willing to chat and discuss treatment options. As a diabetic, I have found that she is up on the latest treatment options and provides sound medical advice. My early morning sugars are quite high and Dr. Knight is always on top of the matter through regular office visits and regular blood work. She offers encouragement when you have a set back and offers praise when you are moving in the right direction.
Dr Knight is excellent, a little eccentric, but still a very good doctor. She may not have the best social skills, but I'd rather a specialist like her who knows her stuff. Both myself and my husband was referred to her and I would go back to her office in a flash if I had to. The staff is also very kind and helpful, much better service than you would find in a hospital!
I will say in her day she was probably on top her game. She is not open to the new innovations available ie: computer readouts. The lady at the front desk is extremely rude. I will be asking my GP to refer me to a younger doctor. I dread going to see Dr Knight, there is no eye contact and no encouragement....she is always putting you down.
I have been going to Dr. Knight for over 20 years to manage my diabetes. She is extremely knowledgeable,approachable, helpful & punctual. She is well informed and up to date on diabetes management. I have been diabetic for over 30 years and her course of treatment has enabled me to maintain my health with only minor complications. She is caring,friendly and I view her as more of a family member than a professional due to the fact that she always makes me feel comfortable on my visits. I would not change to another doctor as she is the best that has ever treated me.
I went to Dr. Knight a few years ago and will never return. She nurse first took me into a roon and did my ekg, but nver told me who she was, I had to ask if she was the doctor to find out who she was. Then I was put in another room to wait and when Dr. Kight came in she breezed in the room and mumbled "how old are you" I thought she asked me how are you, when I didn't answer with my age she nastly grunted again "How old are you" this time I made out what she said. I had to finally ask "Are you the doctor?" I then got a very short yes. She changed my insulin all around and my sugars when crazy. I never went back to her and never will!!
I was referred to her by my family doctor b/c i have a graves disease (hyper thyroid). After seeing her 3x in the past 6 mo i'm still not sure how i feel about her. She seems nice, but i really got no explanation as to why my meds were increased inspite of my levels dropping almost in half, maybe i have to much faith and trust? i'm going back to her next week with a list of questions and will not leave until they are all answer.
