Dr. Ligon was creative in finding a solution to my need to renew my driver's license. He made an appointment with a person in the bone and joint division who tested me in various ways to determine my capability to drive. I am so grateful for a doctor who didn't respond to me as two Scott and White physicians who just said they didn't know whether I was and left it at that.
