Emily McKnight is a certified physician assistant in Internal Medicine at Kelsey-Seybold’s Berthelsen Main Campus location.

Fun Facts

Emily says she can be impatient when pursuing a goal that she wants to achieve, so some of the best advice she’s received is to remember that “big changes take patience and perseverance.”

Something that many people don’t know about Emily is that as a student at Texas A&M, she worked in the genetics lab where she took care of over 300 monarch butterflies, feeding them, assisting in husbandry, and keeping data points on phenotype.
As a kid, she wanted to be a nautical archeologist when she grew up and attended Texas A&M for archeology and anthropology because of her interest in history and love of learning about other cultures.

I’m passionate about giving patients the tools they need to succeed in bettering their health outside the walls of the clinic. I believe patient care should be a consistent and shared dialogue between patient and practitioner, and I want all my patients to feel comfortable and knowledgeable when they leave an appointment with me.
