Patient Reviews (2)
in Hamden, CT |
I'm a savvy nurse nearing the end of my 42 year rigorous career. Dr. Ligham has a wonderful bedside manner & above average knowledge base. Yet, he allows his patients to participate in decisions/options. He worked endlessly to get to the route of my intractable pain. Finally, after no success with pharmacological management, epidurals, radio frequency ablations, and stem cell injections Dr. Ligham took me on as a project. He sent me for a L-S MRI. Then, we learned I was dropped in the OR!
in Guilford, CT |
Dr. Ligham was unapologetic about misdiagnosing me, and failed to disclose important negative side effects of surgery he was pressuring me to have. I have less than zero confidence in this doctor's ability to diagnose and treat patients.
