Did not do a physical assessment, only computer updates. We discussed that I had not had a pap in many years yet he did not do one nor refer me to anyone. I also mentioned a couple of concerns & he only replied to let him know if it doesn\'t clear up, no tests etc. I do not feel he is very thorough, sort of hands off.

While I love Dr. Ligon since he is very caring and very respectful, for the past several years, he has only treated my on-going issues. I have not had a breast exam in years, nor has he even touched me other than when I have an acute issue such as sinus infection, etc. or to test feeling in my feet. Maybe the labs show more now. Maybe it\'s something just not done. He orders my mammograms, he notices things, but I could not call this a "Physical" in the old sense of the word.
