“I found Mr Knight to be very empathetic when it came to listening to my concerns. I was apprehensive at first having an online consultation, however Mr Knight understood what I was saying and gave me a recommendation to help my problem. Mr Knight explained everything clearly and gave plenty of reassurance. I was very happy with the outcome. “

In these difficult time of lockdown I needed advice from Mr Knight who had treated me previously in his consulting rooms, and through his lovely secretary, a face to face consultation was arranged. All I had to do was download an app and be there at a certain time! Mr Knight was as brilliant as usual and was able to give me advice without actually being in the same room.

Mr Lindsey Knight

Thank you so much for your positive review on Doctify. Very pleased you felt reassured following you virtual discussion with Mr Knight and that you were happy with this advice.
