He is an outstanding foot Dr. who will make sure he takes care of your problem with care and understanding.

Thank you for helping me with my fragile and broken feet. Also, the front end desk is accommodating and friendly.

Dr. Light performed surgery on me after another surgeon twice cancelled my appointments. He thoroughly explained everything each visit. The results have been excellent, and I highly recommend him.

The office staff was extremely efficient and courteous. I found him to be very caustic and condescending!!! The only recommendation for my foot was to sell me one of his many products-never go back!!!!

I really believe that Dr. Light saved my Life because I was in such pain when I went to see him I could hardly walk! My diagnosis was a wart virus and calluses! It was so painful to walk! He treated my illness with several treatments of chemicals, and that was also painful, but it worked and I do not have warts or any more! I recommend Dr. Light for all and anything that is wrong with your feet! He is an excellent professional, calm and pleasant Doctor. He takes pride in his work and he cares about his patients!

Just had my first appointment with Dr. Light at East Cobb Foot & Ankle Care. Like anyone else, I hate going to the doctor but my tendonitis was just not going away. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Light so I made an appointment. Right upon entering his office, I could tell that this was going to be a relaxed and professional experience. Dr. Light's staff was courteous and efficient. The waiting room was comfortable. And once I was with Dr. Light, his breadth of knowledge and medical suggestions quickly put me at ease. In about 45 minutes of quality medical time, we went through a variety of procedures I could do at home and provided me with a couple of items to immobilize my ankles to alleviate the pain. All in all, this was a FIVE STAR experience!

Great Doctor. My husband has had to see him for an open wound on his toe. He tried to advise him to get a tendon release done, but my husband put him off. Resulting in amputation of two toes. When his other foot started to have the same problem my husband did the tendon release which saved his toes. I have also seen him as a patient. The staff is friendly and fast. They have always treated us very well. I will definitely recommend him to friends and coworkers.

I had severe bunions and put off having surgery for years. Dr. Light and his staff were professional, knowledgeable, personable and caring. I was in a cast for 6 weeks and a boot for 3 weeks. I honestly had no pain which I know is not normal for this kind of surgery. I was on pain meds for a few days and then motrin. My experience with the first foot made doing the second one easier (6 months later). My feet look and feel great.

After experiencing foot pain for several years, anytime I wore heels, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Light to discuss my options. I ultimately had surgery on both of my little toes with excellent results. I highly recommend Dr. Light to all my friends and family!

Great Doctor, Very trust worthy. The staff here is super friendly and fast. I came with paperwork filled out and had almost no wait. Dr Light told me that I needed surgery but I did not need to have it done right away. He took much more of a conservative treatment plan which worked marvelously. When I do decided on surgery I will be back here.

Dr. Light and staff are professional, kind and extremely helpful. I have been to the office on several occasions and experienced little to no wait time upon check in/check out. Front office staff is kind and courteous. Dr. Light was able to help identify a proper diagnosis, and a treatment plan. I can see a future with mobility and lessened pain because of Dr. Light. If you have foot/ankle pain make an appointment today, don't wait!

I saw Dr. Light in December of 2016:a slight bunion on my right foot & a hammer toe. We discussed shaving vs breaking the bone (bunion). Dr. Light asked me if the bunion was causing any pain, said no. He told me. "not broken, don't fix it". This comment instilled trust for Dr. Light. We did not discuss the hammer toe. I had this surgery on another toe. Dr. Light cut the tendon on my hammer toe, however, he didn't put a pin in; I asked why.. "I took the short cut" I am seeing another Doc to fix
