After much research I consulted Dr. Light last year about bunion problems on both feet. He clearly explained my conditions & the range of options for treating them, including the likelihood of success & possible complications. Based on his recommendation & my own investigation I chose somewhat different procedures for each foot (because of different conditions)& had the surgery 4 mos. apart. After observing my very positive experiences, my daughter recently had similar bunion surgery by Dr. Light with the same excellent results. Not only was Dr. Light very detailed with his pre-op exams, but also he was precise & careful when it came to care during the recovery process. My daughter & I were extremely pleased with the professionalism, friendliness & concern of both Dr. Light & his wonderful staff, Denise & Kendra. We recommend him without hesitation.

Poor service, poor accounting staff and all they want is your money. YES!!! Dr. Light was very professional and courteous. His surgery just didn't work out for me. Fine. But it's the staff that I've had problem with. First time I went in for check-up and pre-op, they were very friendly and courteous. Different story after I got my surgery. My foot never healed (scheduled for another surgery elsewhere) and their customer service just sucks. It's surprising how they were so quick to send my bill but I had to request for my record 3 times until I finally got it. They don't care about you, all they want is your money. They sent my account to legal recovery resourse after few months for such small amounts and I started getting harassed by them. It is the worst doctor's visit I have ever had!!! EVER. Dr. Light, if you are really concerned about your business, you should reconsider your staff. really.

Anytime I do any procedure my goal is to fix the problem 100%. Not every surgery obtains this level of success. The potential for complications and expected success rates are discussed prior to any surgery.
The volume of positive comments posted on this Kudzu site regarding the quality of our care and concern for each patient speaks for itself. I believe that my staff provides the same quality of care that I expect from myself every day for every patient.
Patients are only sent to collections after 3 bills are sent and multiple phone calls are made to try to address any financial concerns or special situation. Payment arrangements are always allowed. Our preference would be to never have to send anyone to collections. Mark Light, DPM FACFAS
I spent 1 1/2 years going to an orthopedic doctor for my foot and heal pain. Had I gone to Dr. Light first, I would have saved so much time and money. He prescribed a treatment that gave me 90% improvement the first 2 weeks. He is very professional, very knowledgable and has a wonderfully efficient office. Do not hesitate to see him--Dr. Light is great!

Dr. Light is a great podiatrist. He cares about your problems, and seeks to help with your treatment. He even saw me on a day that I had no appointment. I drove from Cartersville, and he treated me because he knew how far I came. The orthotics are great, and my treatments for my neuroma are helping. I just appreciate the fact that you are not just a number but an actual person that he wants to help. The staff is great, too.

I found Dr. Light on Kudzu. Dr. Light had a cancellation and was able to see my son the next day after calling his office. He performed an in-office procedure on my son with great care and expertise. Office staff was outstanding. I wish every doctor and staff were this great.

Very happy I just went to the office for my second visit and the Doctor and staff are wonderful. They make you feel very comfortable and welcome. The procedure was very quick and painless. Its also very family friendly.

Dr. Light just performed surgery on my foot the day before this writing. I have been to his office many times and all I received was care, understanding by both he and his staff. I even called a few weeks ago to ask if a colleague of mine that had a tennis injury the day before could be worked in... no problem. He took care of her as if she had been a patient for many years. Denise and Kendra, always helpful, always kind and always ready to assist. Dr. Light personally called be at home to check on me and I have been very pleased, very pleased with the service and personal attention I have been given. Thank you E. Cobb Foot and Ankle Care.

they just want your money. I saw Dr. Light for the first time and he was already pushing me for surgery and that was only my first appointment with him. I got their bill and I tried to make payment arrangements, looking at the bill the office chaged me for every little thing, the insoles were $80 and I found it at Wal-Mart for $12.99. I tried to make payment arrangements with them and left messages with their accounting person who was always at lunch everytime I called and I never got a phone call back and next thing I knew they my account to Legal Recovery Services for a bill that is only 2 months old. Poor service, poor accounting staff and all they want is your money.

One of the things that I pride myself with is the fact that surgery is never the only treatment option presented. There are, however, many problems that can only be "fixed" by surgery. It is always the patient's choice on how they treat their problem. Not everyone is a surgical candidate and not everyone can consider surgery because of personal reasons. The fact that an insole was dispensed indicates that a conservative treatment option was presented and accepted. Fees are also reviewed before anyone leaves the office.
Over the counter insoles are readily available at countless locations including Wal Mart. They are not of the same quality as the products that I dispense from my office nor are they usually as successful at relieving symptoms.
There is always someone available to answer phones 9 hours a day. Patients are only sent to collections after 3 bills are sent and multiple phone calls are made to try to address any financial concerns or special situation. Payment arrangements are always allowed. Our preference would be to never have to send anyone to collections.

These guys are very friendly. They made me feel very comfortable, considering the pain I was in. The doctor was very knowledgable. I believe that anyone would benifit from this place.

For years I've searched for a Dr. to correct my bunions and other foot problems. I've never felt comfortable with those I've seen before. Immediately I met with Dr. Light, I felt at ease. He's warm, compassionate, professional and skilled. The whole experience, including the surgery, has been a breeze. Also his assistants, Denise and Khendra are great, always ready to resolve any insurance questions and take care of procedures etc. One feels cared for and listened to.....a real find! If you have any foot problems I can tell you, you will be in the best of hands. I just wish I'd found him years ago.

Dr. Light did a great job on my feet! He was very thorough, and detailed about explaining my condition, giving me options for my choice of treatment. The 45 minute drive was worthwhile - I'll be back. Emmess

Tried another foot doctor in town, was ok, but did not get the level of detail I was expecting in terms of a) what was wrong with my foot, b) what the options were to address the problem, c) what the pros / cons were for each of these options. I wanted a second opinion... and sought out the best foot doctor in town. I believe I have found him... Dr. Mark Light. My visit to his office was the most efficient and effective doctor's visit I have ever had. In fact, I never write reviews... anywhere. It is only because the service was so favorable that I am making a point to in this case. Hope this helps in your decision.

I found Dr. Light on Kudzu. Although the office was 30 mins away, the reviews were so positive, I decided to see him. He's worth every star. A thoroughly professional operation. The receptionist is delightful, patients get seen on time, and he's a genuinely nice guy.

I had a painful ingrown toe nail. I got in quick, he no nonsense explained options, fixed my toe, and I was out of there. I had been to other podiatrist before and felt I was being sold or upsold on services. Dr. Wright addressed my issue, treated it, and I am on my way.
