This person, I even do not want to call him doctor, ruined my eye, when did the operation at Eye and Ear Infirmary. He lied to me subsequently about what happened during operation. Did not put correct info in writing after operational instruction. He always late by much coming to the office and never apologize. I heard many negative opinions about this "doctor" and would recommend to avoid to trust your eyes to him
Came to see Dr. Ligh with my mother to Mark Joffe Ocean Parkway office. First horrible uncaring stuff, 2nd they book twenty patients in one hour. Dr. comes late. Do not know how good the Dr. is but he seemed to rush you quickly to get to the next patient. No clear communication nor understanding of the problem. Would never recommend the office. They do testing in the hallway (very strange) they book tons of patient i guess to make more money. Do not seem caring or professional. Not sure how all the good reviews come from maybe from Manhattan office.
