I believe that I received a very complete assessment during my visit, discovering some things I was not aware of. The nursing staff was excellent, explaining every step with care. Dr. Lighvani was very thorough,thoughtful, and personable -- what more could one ask for?

Dr. Lighvani spent much more time with me than most NYC doctors do which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend him.

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. Dr. Lighvani is patient, intelligent, well-spoken and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone with allergy concerns.

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..

The office is serene and is run beautifully. Doc's assistant, who took my vitals and ran the allergy tests, was highly competent and pleasant. The doc himself seemed interested not just in my symptoms, but in me as a person.

Appeared to be more concerned with proving himself right than listening to my symptoms. Not the warmest bedside manner. For that reason I would not recommend.

I went to Dr. Lighvani after being disappointed with another allergist. The second I walked in the door, I immediately felt better. The staff were very attentive, and the doctor took me exactly on time, and the office was very clean with some rather high tech equipment. Dr Lighvani provided the diagnosis and treatment with very comprehensive, helpful and reassuring explanations. It was a great experience and gave me hope that my discomfort has an end in sight!

Dr. Lighvani saw my daughter, 7 months, and I can't say enough amazing things about him. The office itself is beautiful and brand new, the staff (especially Karen in the front who was beyond helpful and patient following up with our insurance/referrals) and the nurses were all wonderful. Dr. Lighvani was thorough, genuinely concerned and extremely knowledgeable about how to treat my daughters allergies. We can't thank them enough for the care they took of both new mommy (myself) and daughter!

I've been a regular patient of Dr. Lighvani's for a number of years now and cannot say enough good things. He is an exceptional doctor, who also does a splendid job interacting with his patients. Additionally, the rest of his staff, both nurses/medical assistants and administration, are both extremely friendly and also very accommodating. The new offices are the icing on the cake: well-appointed, spacious and inviting. The practice is run very efficiently while maintaining a convivial atmosphere. Overall, I would give Dr. Lighvani and the staff I interacted with top marks.

The office was very pleasant as were the staff and ease of "registering" as a new patient. I was seen right away by an assistant, but it took about a 1/2 hour before the MD came in. Dr. Lighvani was professional, and interested. I was tested for various allergies as well as given an ENT exam. Dr. Lighvani explained everything. Both he and his assistant made efforts to be helpful and address my concerns, questions and problem.

Dr L. is very thorough, asks questions, and listens to the answers. He discusses past experiences and options, giving you recommendations but leaving the choice to you. The only complaint was the wait in the waiting room and again in the exam room this time, which is not typical. However, the rooms are bright and relatively comfortable so could be worse.

Even though the initial wait time was longer than I would have liked, I was very impressed with the staff and Dr. Lighvani. It is pretty obvious he really enjoys what he does and he has great bedside manner. He was attentive, patient, and didn't make me feel like he was rushing. He also took time to really explain the timeline and complexities of immuno therapy. I may not be able to get my daughter a cat this week, but Dr. Lighvani definitely gave me hope that I will be able to do so in the future.

The visit went well. The Dr. was very professional and examined my daughter for allergies. We were worried that we were going to run hundreds of test on her, but he only did the minimum necessary. We were very pleased.
