Needed to find a new physician due to insurance reasons. Found Dr. Lightly very knowledgable with a very nice personality. He spend over an hour assessing me as new patient and shed some new light on old problems. I would recommend him for new patients. His cardiac background is very useful since he doubles as cardiologist and internist.

This is the first time I ever saw a Doctor and did not feel rushed. This Doctor took his time and explained things and gave a complete examination, all of this and it was on a Saturday.This is the way it is supposed to be and should be, when you see a Doctor.

I was impressed with Dr. Lighty's knowledge and skill, and the time spent and thoroughness of his approach to getting a full medical history. He is one of the better doctors I have seen in terms of answering questions and providing explanations. I am new to the area and found him rather randomly on ZocDoc, and I will be using him as my primary care physician.
