      I have been seeing Dr. Legant since 2003 with different injuries and he has done 3 surgeries on my knees. His bedside manner has always been terrific and he explains things very well. His office has always gotten me in pretty quickly.

      I did not see Dr Legant. I just wanted someone to know how horrible I was treated when I called to make an appointment. I believe I spoke with a person names Carol. I would hope that she does not treat everyone as rudely and mean as she treated me.
