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.

Dr. Clarence Legerton is such a kind-hearted, loving person. I've been his patient for about a year and I truly appreciate all that he has done for me. He takes his time and explain every meds or procedures that he recommends for my health. I'm so grateful for his expertise. Because of him my health has improved tremendously. I have a brighter future because of his love for his patients. Thank you Dr. Legerton.

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