Dr. Lighavani is a highly competent and caring physician. His approach to medicine is holistic, and in my opinion a highly unusual trait among medical professionals where specialization often focuses on the minute to the detriment of the big picture.

The Dr. Was very knowledgeable and had good bedside manner. He was very professional as well as the nurses that performed the allergy tests. One of the ladies at the reception desk was not that great though; she had poor people skills and was not welcoming to the practice Karen from the front desk was good.

Best doctor ever. He's extremely knowledgeable and expert in his field, which is why we trek all the way from Brooklyn for my son's allergic asthma. He takes time to understand issue, not rushed. Very modern office with latest technology. For example he suspected sinus infection, and had a flexible camera to insert in the nose, and confirm on the spot. Added bonus sense of humor and style.

Everyone in the office knows your name after one visit. I love coming here. I dont like shots but Dr. Lighvani suggested I do immunology and made sure that cost would never get in the way of me getting the care I need. I come in for my shots, they give me my paperwork without me asking or having to say my name, the woman who gives me my shots knows I dont like them to be announced and she remembered from my first visit and handles me with such care. I really love this office and would highly recommend it.

You barely meet with him, but he is nice and knows his stuff. When getting an allergy test they also checked your lungs, which I thoroughly appreciated. I was unaware that after you get tested with several needles you have to go get blood work done in a different facility since they do not do blood work in their office. I wish it was an all in one office.
