Dr. Hylton Lightman is the rare adult who has proven he has an uncanny rapport with adolescents and young people.

Over his career as a pediatrician, he has established personal relations and dialogue with his individual patients which has served to make him an expert on the social and behavioral issues being faced by these young people.

While some people in the Orthodox Jewish world would like to think that the outside world and influences have not reached their youth, Dr. Lightman sees that this is not true and can get parents and kids to listen.

Dr. Lightman has been a voice for reason and sanity with issues including:

  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Sexually-transmitted diseases
  • Autism & ADHD
  • Parenting teenagers–physical & psycho-social issues
  • Hidden challenges in the Orthodox Jewish community


Dr. Lightman loves doing public appearances, has written guest editorials and been a radio and TV guest on a wide variety of parenting, young adult and children’s health issues.
