Cannot even begin to tell you how impressed I am with Dr. Ligon and her staff. All the way from the front desk to the back of the office, nursing staff, and especially Doctor are AMAZING, she is just wonderful. I had been to 2 other doctors prior to finally landing an appointment with Dr. Ligon’s office. With the other 2 doctor visits, when I KNEW something was wrong with my body, I was simply told there wasn’t anything wrong, just that my BP was elevated. My symptoms continued and only got worse.

From the moment I met with Dr. Ligon, she was very concerned about my BP and thyroid complaints symptoms. She did several tests, blood draws and ultrasounds and was able to give me a firm diagnosis. She is thorough, makes sure you don’t have any questions and you understand everything, has an excellent bedside manner. She’s treating me with exceptional care & I could not be happier with her being my PCP. Jennifer, her nurse, is an angel and makes you feel extremely comfortable. Do yourself and your health a huge favor and schedule an appointment with Dr. Ligon!
