Dr. Light is amazing. I was pretty nervous and worried, but he not only explained everything, but did so in a manner that made me feel comfortable and as relaxed as possible given the circumstances. I would recommend Dr. Light to anyone needing complex, compassionate and extremely competent care.

First: His telephone rang and he checked it instead of focusing on me. (unprofessional) Second: He got upset with me for answering his questions while he was attempting to fill a prescription online. (unprofessional) I'm not responsible forhis inability to multitask. If you want me not to talk, don't ask me a question.

The doctor is great. Front office staff have a hard time synchronizing zoc docs appointments with changes made in person or via phone. The result is the patient being told 2 different appt times with no way to know which isthe real one without a lot of hassle. Other than that, the experience with the doc himself was fine.

I had a wonderful first visit to Dr. Light's office. His staff was friendly and worked me in with almost no wait despite a scheduling issue whereby I essentially hadn't scheduled an appointment. Dr. Light was not only personable and seeminglyvery knoiwledgable, but he was understanding of the sensitivity of my issue. He took time to hear and address my concerns. I will certainly continue to see him.

Dr. Light was very polite and personable. I was a new patient and I definitely liked that he asked questions of my condition to try to understand what was going on with me. I feel confident with his plan to checkeverything out to decide what course of action to take.

Good visit with Dr. Light. He made the visit well worth it. The wait time was a little troublesome. I arrived at 2:15 for a 2:30 appointment and didn't get called back to the room until 3:15. An hour wait beforeI was called. Then I sat in the room for another 20 minutes before the doctor came in. They've got to do better with people's time.
