Dr Liggett is a great Dr. I started seeing him in 2013 and he has always been a very thorough caring Dr. I have driven for visits to Dr Liggett as far away as 4 hours and would drive further if I needed to. I have every confidence in the world in Dr Liggett and would never see anyone but him...more
