About Us

Knight Integrative Medicine was founded by Dr. Candice Knight out of her frustration with the lack of resources available to both doctors and patients for restoring patient physiology to optimum function and not merely treating disease and symptoms with medications and surgery. Because of the limited tools in her toolbox to address these concerns, she sought out and continues to pursue additional training in integrative and functional medicine in order to serve the patients desiring more time and investigation than what conventional medicine has to give. Knight Integrative Medicine is dedicated to creating a healing environment for its patients where they can feel confident knowing their health care team is dedicated to having a personal relationship with each and every patient that will serve as a foundation to helping them reach their goal of peak health and wellness. Our focus is to always restore physiology before relying on pharmacology and surgery. We will always recommend the least toxic, least invasive, and least costly approach to help patients achieve supreme health. Our passion is preventative medicine over the reactionary approach so prevalent today.
