“I love Dr. Knox. He was very friendly and helpful. Took care of the pain and now I’m pain-free.”
– Nancy D.

“He seems to be a good surgeon and has helped my back pain. I am still in physical therapy and will know later, but I think he is a good doctor. I would want him again if I had to have back surgery yet. Hopefully, that won't be needed still.”
