After graduating from the University of Wisconsin- Madison with a degree in mechanical engineering, Dr. McKnight took a position as an engineer with Honda of America Manufacturing, designing and implementing high speed robotic equipment to assemble automobile and motorcycle engines. After working for 3 years, he eventually returned to graduate school at the University of Arizona to pursue further graduate education in engineering before making the career change to medicine. His residency in pediatrics was completed in Las Vegas, NV and he and his wife developed close friends while living in Henderson, Nevada.
Upon completion of his fellowship training in Allergy/Immunology in Tampa, FL, he and his family returned to Henderson where he started his solo allergy practice in 2004.
“My goal has been to provide the highest quality specialty care while also using the latest technology and resources available.”
Dr. McKnight is one of the early pioneers in electronic medical records, after successfully implementing GE Centricity in his start-up practice in 2004 and creating customized allergy forms for the system.
He merged his solo practice with Allergy Partners in January 2012, recognizing the significant benefits of joining the largest single specialty practice of allergy/immunology in the United States.
When not practicing medicine, Dr. McKnight and his wife enjoy many activities with their 3 young boys, including skiing, wake boarding, scuba diving, sailing, cycling, swimming, and traveling to exotic locations.
