Dr. Rachel Goodknight


Dr. Goodknight is thrilled to join Banfield of Highland Creek! She has been part of the Banfield family since 2014 after being in private practice for four years. She hails from Vero Beach, Florida but attended veterinary school in Glasgow, Scotland. Dr. Goodknight has special interests in the care of aged pets, preventive medicine, and soft tissue surgery. When not caring for four-legged family members, she loves hiking in NC's beautiful nature spots, experiencing Charlotte's plethora of restaurants, and whipping up new culinary concoctions. She also enjoys giving back to the community by going to elementary schools to foster excitement for the veterinary profession. Dr. Goodknight's family includes her husband, their young son, and a mixed breed dog named Ori. Dr. Goodknight adores caring for her canine and feline patients and is beyond ecstatic that she will never again have to insert her arm into another cow.
