Dr Ligon made a profound statement in my appointment today that strengthened my confidence in his treatment practice. He said, "I don't know but I can research the evidence and refer you to a provider with more speciality expertise". Integrity like this is priceless and demonstrates clinical judgement not found in a canned decision tree algorithm for medical care
