He was fantastic. He was able to fit my husband in at the last minute (he had a foot injury). We called at 1:30 and explained the situation and they had an appointment for us by 2:30. My only reservation was that he did an xray (very cautious on his behalf) but I wish we had requested he bypass that. But even then, who can really complain about him being thorough? He was fantastic, put my nervous husband at ease, and treated his foot that same visit! Will definately return.

I have been training for a marathon for the past few months. With only 3 weeks to go before the race, my big toe nail began to swell up with blood underneath making my runs really painful. I called to make an appt on Friday at noon and they were able to get me right in at 3 p.m. He did minor toe surgery to relieve some of the pressure and allow the fluid to release. I had a 21 mile workout scheduled the following morning and was really worried about how it would heal. Later on that evening, my toe was as good as new and I had an AWESOME workout the following day. I would highly recommend Dr. Light and his staff anyday :-)

Dr. Light and his staff are caring and professional. The wait times in his reception area are short and Dr. Light takes as much time as needed when he is working with my husband. He has greatly helped my husband with his diabetic related foot problems. With other offices, the earliest available appointment would be two or more weeks; Dr. Light's office sees my husband within a day of calling for an appointment. We appreciate his attention to detail and that he listens carefully to my husband's concerns. My husband and I highly recommend the services of Dr. Light.

I hate for anyone to touch my feet--but my feet hurt--couldn't walk. Dr. Light was direct, informative, gentle and understanding. I walked out of his office feeling 1000% better than when I walked in (shuffled in--walked out). I feel great knowing that I have a podiatrist that can make me feel at ease and someone I can have confidence in.

The office staff is nice but I found the experience unprofessional. The Dr was short with me and was pushing surgery. I felt that they were trying to charge as much to my ins company (took x-rays, gave me inserts) instead of prudently handling my problem. Please reconsider seeing this Dr. there are other podiatrists in the area that I think will serve you better.

Each and every patient that comes to our practice at East Cobb Foot & Ankle Care is treated professionally and with respect. I take pride in explaining not only what is causing the problem but ALL of the treatment options. Surgery is sometimes the best way to “fix” a problem, but is never the only treatment offered. The fact that insoles were dispensed indicates that a non surgical option was presented and suggested.
X-rays are a common diagnostic tool for many problems involving the foot and ankle. No services or treatments are provided or billed for that is not agreed upon by the patient at the time of treatment.

I saw Dr. Light after experiencing pain in my heel. I was taken care of in a timely and efficient manner. Dr. Light diognosed my injury and gave me instructions and meds that helped me. My heel is no longer a problem.

My feet are important to me...I use them to run after kids, the dog, groceries, you name it...so when I started suffering foot pain, it scared me. I did some research and sought out expert advice. Dr. Mark Light certainly fits the bill. Dr. Light is straightforward, yet friendly. He served up my diagnosis and all my alternatives succinctly. I felt like I was a partner in my treatment. His office staff is very caring and fun. My wait times were totally doable. I appreciate Dr. Light's credentials as well as his willing to listen attitude. My feet are planted firmly in his hands.

My husband is a diabetic and also has endured terrible pain in his foot for many years. After an excruciating visit to a podiatrist last year, he was very apprehensive about another appointment with yet another doctor. But after fighting the morning rush hour traffic on our drive from Carrollton, he was immediately put at ease by Dr. Light and his wonderful staff. Dr. Light is very thorough, yet gentle with his approach. My husband received some much needed relief after one visit and looks forward to continuing treatment with Dr. Light. Definitely worth the drive....

Being 46 years old and feeling like 96 wasn't cool. Everyday my feet have been killing me as far back as I can remember. My wife begged me to go see a podiatrist for years. Finally, I got to were I could hardly walk on my feet at all. I asked her to find me a good foot doctor, I was now ready for anyone to help me. After lots of research she found Dr. Mark Light. An appointment was made, and my life was saved!!! My feet have been screaming with pain since I was about 17 years old. Upon meeting with Dr. Light I realized how foolish I had been to have waited so long and to have had to go through so much pain unnecessarily. He explained to me that "Yes" he could help me, but it would not be over night. You did not get this way over night, and with treatment, correct shoe support inserts, icing my feet, doing some exercises at home with my feet, etc. I would heal and get better. I have been seeing Dr. Light now for several months and I can already tell a huge amount of relief. I could kick myself in the rear for not going sooner. If I could leave anyone that message, "To go get help, now not later" I would yell it from the roof tops. His office has helped to schedule me appointments to co-inside with my busy work day in order for me to come in for treatments. If you have any foot pain what so ever, pick up the phone and schedule a consultation with Dr. Light--he SAVED Me!!!! My only regret is I didn't do it sooner...

I've had pain in both feet for years. I put off going to a doctor until I couldn't stand it anymore! I found Dr. Light and he & his staff have been a godsend! There is never a wait either in the waiting room or the examination room. I am treated respectfully, personally and professionally every time. I ended up having surgery to correct my problems, but it has truly been a piece of cake - with almost negligible pain and very quick recovery. If I had known how easy it was going to be, I would have gone to him years ago! I love Dr. Light & his staff. I highly recommend them to everyone!

I have been a patient for almost 4years. Dr. Light is wonderful,as are Denise & Kendra They never over book. I love the fact that whatever is needed to treat your condition,is in your hand before you leave. How wonderful not to make a trip to the pharmacy, when you just want to go home,or back to work. I wish all Dr.s' offices were so helpful. I recomend Dr. light to everyone.I look forward to my appointments+ appreciate the staff . I Feel so many times when you find a good DR. that the staff is so cold,it makes for a miserable visit. This office is great!!!!! Thank you so much for all you have done for me!!!!!I am having surgery this December and I can't wait. I know I will feel better and be able to workout again, thanks to Dr. light + staff.I have complete confidence + hope everyone that has foot problems,come in to see them, you won't be sorry!!!!!

I had years ago visited another Podiatrist who nearly crippled me and was therefore leery of all Podiatrist. Dr. Light proved that I had no reason to fear. He is professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. After suffering for many months with a foot ailment, Dr. Light has me well on the road to full recovery within 30 days of my visit. His diagnosis, treatment and prognosis have proved to be exactly what I needed. If you are within a day’s drive of his office and need the service and/or opinion of a well-versed Podiatrist, I highly recommend Dr. Light.

Dr. Light and his staff are wonderful. I went in not knowing what to expect, and they put me at ease. I felt very comfortable in what I thought would be a very painful procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Light. I also took my son there when he needed treatment.
