  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Excellent. Excellent doctor. Dr. Knish is my hero. He literally saved my life. I was so sick and so sick of being sick that I was very close to ending my life. Dr. Knish recognized my hopelessness and sprang into action. God blessed me with the doctor I needed.

Fantastic doctor

Dr. Knish has been our family dr. since we moved her in 2006. I must say that I have saw a lot of doctors in my life but Dr. Knish is one of the very best (if not the best) I've ever been to. He has a great knowledge about most any condition one has and knows how to treat it. And what he cannot treat, he will schedule the appt. with the specialist you need to see. He has recommended several specialists for me. HIs office is always perfectly clean & his staff is very warm & friendly. Dr. Knish has a compassion for his patients that is pretty rare these days. He usually always asks me how my husband is doing (he had surgery last Aug 2013). He's prompt, never makes a patient wait more than 5 or 6 minutes. He never rushes a patient right on through (like some I've been to in the past). He takes time to talk with me, many times about things I did not go to see him about. In truth, I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Knish. He's just the best !! I recommend him to everyolne.
