Dr Ligenza was on the phone with the Hospitol until 3 am. And then showed up in my hospital room at 8 am with 2 of my other Doctors. I felt very well taken care of. Amazing in this very busy world!!!

Dr Ligenza is THE BEST doctor I have ever experienced in all my 64 years as a patient and as a caregiver. Dr Ligenza is Brilliant!!! Dr Ligenza listens to you and discusses your concerns with you and diagnoses and treats any illness you have or if necessary refers you to specialist you need. I've experienced Doctors throughout NY City, Westchester, Westchester Medical Center, Putnam and Dutchess County and no other Doctor compares to Dr Ligenza in my firsthand experience.
