Patient Comments (5)

I have been taking my Dad to Dr. Golightney for 8 years. We have always sat in the waiting room for around 1 Hour each time and then you always sit in an examination room for another 30 minutes. Dr. G is like all Dr.s they overbook patients and make you wait extremely long times before you see them...more

I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Golightly for ENT issues. He is very knowledgeable and very kind. I ask a lot of questions and he answered each one with patience and respect. After having sinus surgery I am breathing much better and glad my pain is gone.
