Patient Comments (4)
in Blair, NE |
Dr. Legge is very competent in neuro ophthamology. We are so Blessed to have him so close to Blair, NE. Extremely thorough, and explains things so well. Very kind and calm. Has helped me through some very scarey times with sudden vision loss and optic nerve neuropathy. I feel he is the Best neuro ophthamologist in the nation. Would highly recommend him to family and friends. The only suggestion I have which does not reflect on Dr. Legge's care is they need more diagnostic machines for so many.
in Waverly Hall GA |
Dr. Legge saved my son's vision, with a difficult and rare diagnosis of Duane's Syndrome. The doctor we took him to first told us that our son (7 months old at the time) would go blind in one eye due to his condition, and there was nothing that could be done. We took him to Dr. Legge for a second opinion, and he vehemently disagreed with the other doctor's 'treatment plan'. He was the hero we needed, and when he operated, the results were precise and flawless. I will always recommend him.
