Specialties

Dr. Barbara L Light has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Time to change her! l took too long to change her

This is not only because of her (she seems to be always in a rush, starts to talk and talk and talk, she is nice and polite but not enough), but because also her nurse is not friendly (black, young woman who seems to be angry and bitter at all times, NOT MERCIFUL AT ALL WITH MY BABY, she does not even talk to him). Also, One of the doctors of the association whom l spoke last Friday night (my baby was in ER due to a fever of almost 104) and told me not to call them unless my baby had 105 degrees of fever!!!!!!! My baby has been sick since more than a week ago and finally they accepted to give me an appointment. Long story, l called yesterday with Header at the administration to complain about everything, so if they read my review, they know who l am.

Would not recommend this office

I would not recommend this office to parents. They claim to have hours Mon-Sun so that your child can be seen if sick...however, I called for 2 hours on Sat morning before I finally got through and then they refused to see my children because they claimed the situation was not emergent. My one 9 month old child was congested, not sleeping, consistent cough, AND had what looked to be like some kind of tremor that took place twice when I tried to put him down for bed; in addition my other child had pretty bad diarrhea, throwing up, fever, and said his throat felt like it was on fire...I explained that I wanted them seen because we were leaving the state on Tues for vacation and they told me to call on Mon because they would not see my children that day....
