Dr. Light and staff are fantastic. After enduring quite a bit of pain in my foot for a couple of weeks, it was obvious time was not going to heal it. I made an appointment with Dr. Light as a new patient. Front office staff was incredibly helpful working with my schedule. Dr. Light and his assistant were very thorough with X-rays and ultrasound. Diagnosis was fully explained and treatment was provided. Down the road more complex treatment may have to be discussed, but for now, I am 98% pain free. I would definitely recommend this doctor to anyone who is in need of professional podiatry help.

Dr. Light and staff are professional, kind and extremely helpful. I have been to the office on several occasions and experienced little to no wait time upon check in/check out. Front office staff is kind and courteous. Dr. Light was able to help identify a proper diagnosis, and a treatment plan. I can see a future with mobility and lessened pain because of Dr. Light. If you have foot/ankle pain make an appointment today, don't wait!

Dr. Light and his staff are fantastic! I had to have a screw removed from my foot from a previous surgery (NOT performed by Dr. Light). It was working it's way out the top of my foot and had become painful. Dr. Light scheduled my surgery right away and I could not have asked for a better experience. In just a few weeks my foot was back to normal and I was back to my normal activities. I definitely recommend Dr. Light for any foot problems you might have.

Dr. Light, his staff as well as the anesthesiologist were amazing. I had a very severe bunion on my right big toe. So severe that the toe was at a 45 degree angle and overlapped the toes adjacent to it. It was painful to walk any distance more than a 1/4 mile and walking barefoot was done at a limp. Three months later, after the bones had fully healed, I can walk and run any distance pain free as well as walk barefoot normally. The procedure was pain free. Do not worry about this at all. You are kept in a twighlight state that can be described somewhat as relaxing. The only pain I experienced post-op was a dull ache the third day that I took Motrin for rather than the prescribed painkillers. I find this amazing since he had to break bones, insert two screws and a wire. Dr. Light and somone from his staff called me that evening and the next day to see how I was doing. I was in a cast and on crutches for six weeks, then in a walking boot for another six then sneakers for six more until Dr. Light was absolutely sure the bones had healed. I highly recommend Dr. Light. He took his time explaining everything, has a great bedside manner and a rather dry wit to keep you relaxed. My only other piece of advice, and has nothing to do with Dr. Light, and that is do not to put off the surgery like I did. It only increases your recovery time. Ask to see Jim G's pictures and x-rays. Pretty amazing.

After several years raw 4th and 5th toes calluses and general toe pain went to see Dr. Light for a remedy. He straightened a toe and shaved bone off the other so they wouldn't rub up against each other when I walked.I was put under by anesthesiologist so procedure was fast. Great recovery only had to wear a special shoe for a few weeks stitches came out then too. Highly recommend this doctor for foot issues. I don't have to deal with what shoes I can't wear anymore plus use things between my toes so they won't rub together.

I had a bunion, Taylor's bunion and hammertoe removed from my left foot back in roughly 2002. Dr. Light performed an excellent surgery and I remember he even called my at home due to it being done on an out-patient basis. I now live in Cape Coral, FL and began have pain on my right foot. The podiatrist here in SWFL even asked who had done my surgery after a thorough exam of both feet. I barely have a scar and have NEVER had a problem since that time. I made a HUGE mistake by not just taking a long weekend and having Dr. Light do my right foot!!! I had surgery here in FL October 2nd and have had problems that are actually worse than before my surgery! My foot still swells and get beet hot red. I found out yesterday there is a fracture along the interior of the great toe near the two pins that were inserted and I now have two horrible scars as well as the outer edge near the pinky toe causes extreme pain. I never had pain on that side to begin with... I had heard horror stories from other people that if they could do it over "They Wouldn't" well I WOULD only if Dr. Light was the one who performed it. If it isn't better within two weeks I'm making the almost 12 hour drive to have him not only guide me forward but a possible surgery to correct these problems. I highly recommend him 110%

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr Light and his staff! I had injured my foot in 2013 and was living out of state at the time and started treatment with a Podiatrist in that area. Upon moving here and getting settled, I was referred to Dr Light. He took his time with me, listened, and read the MRI disk that I brought with me from the other Dr. I knew surgery was my outcome but didn't have enough time to have the surgery before I moved. Dr Light got me in, we discussed the problem and set a surgery date ASAP. He tried a Cortisone shot first which didn't do anything for me, but it was worth a try and I appreciated that. The surgical procedure was a good experience. Everyone is nervous before a surgery, but he and his staff helped to ease my fears and comfort me. Everyone from Dr Light, his nurses, the Anesthesiologist to his receptionists are all courteous, prefessional and compassionate. My foot feels much better now after surgery. The post-surgical care has been just as wonderful and thorough as the pre-surgical visits and care. I highly recommend this podiatry office and staff! I had one issue with my insurance company about paying a bill, I contacted Dr Light's office and they took care of it for me. Everything went smoothly, I can't say enough good things about this office! Thank you Dr Light and staff!

Love this office. The girls are friendly and Dr. Light really knows what he is talking about. The office and surgical center are connected so no going to a hospital for the procedure!! So convenient. Would definitely recommend to anyone have foot or ankle issues. 10+++

I had been having pain for several years any time I wore shoes that were the least bit fitted (i.e. dress shoes with heels). Dr. Light performed surgery on both of my pinkie toes which resolved the issues I was experiencing. I am now pain free and highly recommend Dr. Light to any body I know with foot or ankle pain!
