I came to Dr.Ligon in 2014 when i found out I was having mono/do twins, and he is the best doc ever. I carried my twins all the way til 37weeks and he was all for my vaginal delivery! My boys had other plans though lol so he gave me a csection and did an excellent Job!

I feel very comfortable with him. He has so much knowledge, I never doubt him, and I leave his office feeling confident. He is very proper and kind. I have been a patient of Dr Ligons over 25 years. I feel very blessed with him as my GYN.
