- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I was very moved with Dr McNight's care and compassion after receiving a several follow-up calls about my progress. I've never received a call like that before. His bed side manner is excellent and he spends time to explain in detail. I never felt rushed. His staff is attentive and friendly. I have found a life-time doctor.
Dr. McKnight is a wonderful, caring and knowledgeable physician. I really appreciate the fact that he is not only trained in Family Medicine but Preventive Medicine. I am so grateful I found him and have him as my physician. If you are looking for a great physician, I highly recommend him. He truly cares, listens and researches as to how he can best assist you with your health - It is his passion! I would also say he is a wonderful teacher - instructing you how you can take back control of your health.
NEVER EVER take your special needs child to a doctor located in Niceville, Fl. During my first appointment as a new patient, he was well informed about my child with apraxia and her behavior issues that are mild, and that I have an 8 month old baby. He was aware that I will have to bring in my children for the next follow up appointments because husband cannot take off anymore days at work.He is well informed of my situation: we are a one car family, I have no friends or family here to babysit or offer help. I was in the waiting room with my girls when the nurse told me Dr. McKnight says my children are too disruptive and I have to reschedule when the kids are not with me. Apparently my baby made a couple cries because she was hungry (which I solved with a bottle) and he came out twice angry about it. Here I was stressing trying to keep them hush and they did pretty good...but not good enough for my doctor. I drove my husband to work, then drove to my appointment. One hour of driving, dragging out my kids to be rejected...right in front of one of his patients too. I cried all the way home.
Dr. McKnight is a great General Practitioner. I sincerely rated him above as all Excellent because he is Excellent. I have never experienced such caring, sincere interest in my needs as he has exhibited. If you want personal, unhurried attention, Dr. McKnight is the Doctor you have been looking for. I cannot praise him adequately.
