What People Say About Dr. Sebastian Lighvani, MD

I saw Dr Lighvani for a chronic cough, after seeing many other specialists first. He was very knowledgeable, and took a lot of time to sit down with me and really understand my history of symptoms and come up with a plan of action, rather than just assuming he knew what it was and throwing a prescription at me. Highly recommend!

My allergies were never under better control than with the allergy injections I received under Dr. Lighvani’s care. All of my life long allergy issues were straightened out for the first time as well!

ROCK STAR. Dr Lighvani is the best allergist. I went to him with 15 percent lung function. in 30 days it was 85 percent. I am far from done but it is comforting to have him in my corner. He gives you the time to review all options. Great Bedside manner. The staff is wonderfull also. Very helpful. On my second visit they knew my name. Dr Lighvani leads a great team of professionals.
