The first physician to give me a diagnosis after retina consultants and decades of persistent sight loss. Answered my questions and explained the complexity of diagnoses.

HE HAS BEEN THE ONLY DOCTOR I'VE SEEN FOR MY EYES THAT HAS SHOWN ME MY EYE TESTS AND VIEWS, AFTER OPERATIONS BY OTHERS, AND EXPLAINED WHAT WAS DONE. I NOW KNOW WHAT GLASSES HAVE TO CORRECT. DR. LIGGETT WAS VERY PATIENT AND CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTION.
in Blowing Rock, NC |
I cannot begin to say how impressed I was with Dr. Liggett. He explained everything in great detail, and was very reassuring about the effectiveness of his treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends.
