Dr. Richard Knight is the epitome of an astute modern medical professional with an “old school” dedicated caring “bedside manner” demeanor to always respectfully explain every aspect of a diagnosis and procedure or medication relief options available in a very “patient friendly” way. His detailed hand drawings clearly highlighted how my kidney functioned. I felt educated and a positive part of the decision process for my urology treatment plan. Thank you!
Dr Knight is a very caring and excellent professional. His calm and professional manner makes a sometimes embarrassing confrontation with the medical professional seem ordinary and immediately lowers the stress of the consultation. When discussing problems he listens to patients and asks appropriate questions to clear up any misunderstanding of symptoms. He fully describes why any procedures or tests needed prior to performing them. When discussing results and corrective measures including alternatives (including doing nothing), he talks in plain language about what will be happening and probable results. Side effects of any medication are also discussed. While I have not needed any surgical intervention I would not hesitate to use Dr Knight for any procedures. My wife and I both have consulted with Dr Knight and are well pleased. The surgical care team at RAF Lakenheath are to be commended as well for their professionalism and easy rapport with patients. TSgt Newman was especially good in reducing the stress level for Dr Knights patients. All in all Dr Knight is an excellent doctor and one I would highly recommend.
Dr Knight goes the extra mile: he doesn't just do the minimum, but instead looks for ways to do more than is expected by the patient. His patience is amazing, as is his personal concern for the patient.
The care given by the entire Lakenheath surgery team was second to none. I went in for an operation that I was very skeptical about. It was something that I could have lived with for the rest of my life but would have continued in discomfort. Dr. Knight did an outstanding job of reassuring me that everything would be fine and gave me a very in depth description of what to expect. There were no surprises. The surgery went great and it has honestly changed my life. I would also like to mention an outstanding member of his team TSgt Newman. She is on point. Pure care and professionalism in every way! These folks do a job that most folks would cringe at and they take it in their stride and do a great job with smiles on their faces!
Could not have asked for better care. Has all the time you needed to answer all your questions. Had to have a right hydrocele, the 48th Medical Group Staff all work as one solid team, felt completely at ease, medical care beyond reproach, from the Surgeon to the Nurses, and the Techs, all professional, all caring. Dr Knight was outstanding in all aspects of my procedure, could not have asked for a more knowledgable, caring Surgeon. Special mention for Urology Technician TSgt Newman.Thank you for the professional care and understanding. Procedure performed RAF Lakenheath Base Hospital.
