I have found Dr. Legerton to be very caring and extremely thorough. He spends more time with me on each visit than any other physician I have ever seen. My illness seems to be a bit of a puzzle but I am pleased with Chip’s approach and methodology. He is a wonderful physician!

Dr. Legerton went far and above the call of duty to find the best treatment available for type of osteoporosis. He is clear and precise in his explanations of medications and treatment option. I would definitely refer him to friends and family.

Dr. Legerton saved my husband's life and well being. My husband was in terrible shape with psoriatic arthritis. He couldn't hold a coffee cup or a fork before seeing Dr. Legerton . It took some time and experiments but it is working great now. He can cook, drive, exercise. Dr. Legerton is brilliant!!

I've been seeing Dr. Legerton, III, since January 2009. He is always caring & compassionate and willing to give me as much time as I need. He makes sure I understand each medication and what it does. I fully understand and had a voice in my treatment options.

He does the tests, he amiable, albeit, hyper. Standard doctor knowledge and concern for my condition, which is barely anything.
