in Wembley, BEN |
I could not have been more impressed by Dr. Lightman- he's professional, warm and most importantly a great diagnostician. I've been to a few other practices and I'm truly impressed. Dr. Leightman returns a call within minutes if me beeping him. The attention and patience he gives is like no other! My kids love him too. I highly recommend using him. His staff is wonderful as well.

He is warm, compassionate, and a greater and more brilliant physician cannot exist. He gives of his heart to each and every patient. Whether it be a runny nose, an anaphylactic reaction, of a newborn baby - each patient is treated like a precious soul by him and by his staff.
in Cedarhurst, NY |
The best doctor ever. Great office and staff. Others docs are good too. With 8 exam rooms and top staff, it's a pleasure to go there.
