What Patients Are Saying About Dr. McKnight
“The careful attention and comforting care of Dr. McKnight and the nursing staff walked us through every step of the process. We have a beautiful little boy and looking forward to expanding our family with the help of CCRM very soon! Top notch and I always felt like I was being cared for by the best of the best.”
“Cannot thank Dr. McKnight and my nurse for all they have done to help my family grow! Four blessings they gave me and my husband and I could never truly thank them enough! This office is amazing, has perfect manners and always makes you feel like you’re the only patient!”
“Dr. McKnight is very skilled and has great bedside manner. I work in healthcare and had many questions but she unlike my previous doctor actually listened to me, answered my questions and provided me with relevant information to my treatment plan. This made my decision to switch to Dr. McKnight that much easier. I did call and bug my nurse often in the beginning because of uncertainty or fear with the different procedures. The medication routines change frequently based on your bodies reaction to treatment and can get confusing if you are not paying attention to every detail, but they were prompt and courteous answering my questions over the phone and email. I loved how encouraging and spiritually uplifting the phlebotomists were during my many visits for blood draws. On the day of egg retrieval, the embryologist were very knowledgeable and happy to share information. The sonogram/ultrasound techs were skilled at identifying many aspects of the IVF process. All the staff members were professional and did an amazing job through my entire IVF journey. I would recommend Dr. McKnight and her staff in a heartbeat.”
