I have been seeing Dr Light for 20 years. During this time he has been a part of many positive happenings in my life. Really caring and serious about simple treatments with established medications. Dr Light has helped me select the surgeon for five surgeries and the selections were great! I would recommend Eliot Light for anyone looking for a caring PCP.

He cares about his patients, all of them, and is frank with his advice which I like. Don't BS him, your only selling yourself short if you do and he will know it. He gathers info like a detective in order to provide the best cure for what's ailing you, and he's good at this! He schedules follow ups for you when you need them to make sure your doing well. His staff is excellent, polite, professional and caring, I love them all.
