Patient Comments (3)
in Hilton Head Island, SC |
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.
in BEAUFORT, SC |
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.
