I could never tell Dr. Ligon thank you enough for truly helping to change my life. I wasn't able to see my regular PCP, and had never met Dr. Ligon before, but he was clearly put into my life that day for a reason. As a nurse in the medical field, I know what it's like for a big company to put pressure on you to only spend a certain amount of time with a patient so you can get them out and get another patient in. I understand the reasoning, but I hate that medicine has come to medical staff staring at a computer screen and hardly being able to actually speak directly with the patient. HOWEVER, I've never met a physician like Dr. Ligon that does his job effectively but ALSO took the time to sit with me and talk to me face to face to help ease my concerns over several issues and went above and beyond to even show me a bible study app that I could start. I have been in a very depressed, anxious state of mind following the death of my dad, going on temporary disability for 3 months at the age of 27 for a back injury, and then wrecking my car recently on the way to work. Dr. Ligon was so kind, compassionate, and didn't make me feel like I was taking up too much of his time. THANK YOU, Dr. Ligon.
