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.

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.

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.

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.

Dr. Lighvani wanted to make sure he had all of my information from my hospital stay to help assess next steps. Also, he made recommendations for more tests that I should take based on my records, very thorough.
