Atlanta, GA |
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 and then its rush, rush, rush to get you out of there. Office staff is very friendly and professional but the nurses are snoody.

Dr. Golightly and staff are very kind, professional and accommodating. I have been a patient since 2007 and have never experienced any problems. I love how friendly everyone is!

I highly recommend Dr. Golightly and his staff. They are kind, professional, courteous and helpful in every way. Never has anyone treated me rude like was said by another reviewer.

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.

Very rude staff my husband needed a appointment ASAP paying cash price and have been there before all she could say is we don't have any availability which is not true. The actual Dr seems to act like everyone is on drugs one time we went there and he said just go to the hospital what kind of Dr is that? Do not recommend them at all!
