What People Say About Dr. Diane Light, DO

I was facing the possibility of gallbladder surgery. After getting a referral from my nurse practitioner, I began checking with others in the community who had similar procedures. Dr. Light came highly recommended by her patients and the medical community. After my first appointment, I too was completely satisfied with her medical knowledge and skills, and her extremely personable demeanor!

This is a fabulous physician! She is very caring, patient, thorough, and competent. We appreciate the time she spends explaining things to my elderly mother and engaging her in decision making. I cannot say enough about how blessed we feel to have her as my mother's treating surgeon/physician for follow-up care. She has done two surgeries on my mom and has consistently been amazing! Even though we had to relocate 140 miles away, we continue to make the trips to see her!
