Message from the Practice

The practice of Marjorie B. McKnight, M.D., P.C. would like to take this opportunity to introduce and welcome, Laura Eleazer, P.N.P. and Dr. Rachel Cohen, D.O. the newest members of our team.

It is with great sadness that we announce that after 10 years of service Dr. Necole Washington's last day with McKnight Pediatrics will be Wednesday January 31st, 2018. A statement from Dr. Washington will be posted shortly.

Please complete a short survey for us about our operating hours by clicking the Launch me button below. Thank You!

The flu shot is currently available only for patients 6 months to 3 years old. We are out of the flu vaccine for patients 36 months or older. Our supplier is not manufacturing any more flu vaccine for the season and we do not anticipate receiving anymore flu vaccine for older patients, we apologize for any inconvenience. Please call the office to schedule an appointment during one of the two daily flu clinic hours, NO WALK IN. We run the flu clinic Monday - Friday 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM and 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM.

The Practice is aware of the recent FDA warning about lead test results from Magellan Diagnostics equipment. Please be assured that we have verified with all three labs that we use to do lab testing that the equipment in question is not used and there is no reason to believe that the results that your child has received while a part of our practice need to be questioned or re-tested. Thank you!

Welcome to our website! First, we'd like to thank you for your interest in us and for taking the time to search us out. We hope you will like what you find and we invite you to return frequently. Next, we'd like to extend our gratitude for the many families who continue to entrust us with the care of their children. Without you we could not exist. We thank you for choosing us, trusting in us, and allowing us to be a part of your village.

We hope that you find our website helpful, informational, and easy to navigate. We welcome any and all comments. Click on the 'Contact Us' tab to learn how to send comments.
