Really great people. Entire staff was friendly and genuinely seemed to care about your visit and how to help.. completely opposite of most Dr's offices i've been to! As I am not one to remember medical terminology, the Dr. was very patient with me and answered all questions in a way I could understand.

Doctor Lighvani was the first allergist, and only second doctor in my LIFE that has taken time to really consider you and your symptoms holistically. Other doctors rush in and rush out and you feel unheard- but this isn't the case with Dr. Lighvani at all. He was patient and took time to answer all of my questions and was extremely thorough in looking at all my symptoms. I went in for an allergy exam (expecting the ever-so-fun poke test) and based on the things I told him about symptoms, ended up also getting my lung capacity and inflammation looked at- turns out I need to start using an inhaler. Never would have guessed that was the case. I'm glad he ran the tests, running should be a lot easier now. The turn-around for allergy shots is quite fast too, scheduled time for the day following my apt! Also, the hours are amazing. I'm glad there are still doctors out there that recognize we can't take off work all the time to get to their practice. They open some days as early as 7am to accommodate walk-ins for allergy shots. Thank you- couldn't have asked for a better experience!

I think Dr Lighvani is one of the best physicians i have had any encounter with he is thourogh and takes his time with his patients. The vibe in his office is very peaceful, professional but yet you can have a few laughs with him and his staff to make matters better for why you are there.

Very helpful in explaining the allergic reaction I had experienced and other allergy issues I dealing with. Both Dr. Lighvani and the nurse who helped with my tests were professional, extremely friendly and made me feel at ease (not an easy task for a skin prick test). Everyone in the office genuinely seemed to enjoy their jobs and made what is normally an unpleasant experience more comfortable.

He studied my medical history and asked perceptive questions. In addition he took my problems seriously, thought about options for testing and treatment, and explained them to me. While I was in the office, he called my PCP. The two of them agreed on how we should proceed and, again, he gave me a clear explanation.

Dr. Lighvani's office scheduled me immediately for an appointment the next day. The entire process was very efficient, with forms emailed the previous day to avoid wait time.

The doctor was magnificent. He actually was reading the material in my file. Those questions were supplied in advance so I had plenty of time to answer them, and did not waste any time, or miss any information, by trying to do that in the office just before the exam. A few major tests were performed in the office so the results were available immediately. Two others needed to be scheduled and while that would take a few weeks to accomplish there was no urgency on my end to press for earlier testing. I think if there were I would have been accommodated..
