Patient Comments (4)

Comes across like someone who has sold his soul to Insurance companies. Has no regard for the patient, rude and a total disgrace to the medical profession.

I have trusted him gor several injuries, most recently a damaged knee. He recommended not cutting and to use rest and low meds. I was very happy that he wasn't so quick to jump into surgery. Great guy and very freindly.

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.
