Kirby E. Knox, MD

Unlike most acupuncturists, Dr. Knox’s initial medical training was in western, allopathic medicine and Chinese medicine. However, since he is now trained in both, he tends to use Chinese medicine exclusively, although he will frequently use western medicine training when evaluating and assessing an illness.

Dr. Knox has practiced medicine for over thirty years, initially as a western trained physician, and for the last seven years, as a holistic practitioner. He brings a strong belief in the mind-body-spirit connection to practice.

A deeply spiritual and caring physician, he feels privileged to be a part of his patients’ healing process.
