Dr. LeGant is a brilliant doctor. I'm grateful to have her working on my problems.

July 30, 2013

Dr. Legant has been taking care of me for over 10 years, which is a real tribute to her skill, considering that I have Multiple Myeloma ... a very deadly cancer. At the time I was diagnosed, the average patient with MM only lived 4 years! I have averaged being seen by her every four weeks. So I think I have a pretty good idea of what she is like, for a doctor. I think she is wonderful! She is competent, aware of current and new medical treatments, caring, cautious when need be, moves quickly in a crisis, plans ahead to make sure I have everything I might need when she is going out of town for seminars. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. I highly recommend her. I believe you will not be disappointed. I am so convinced that she is the most wonderful doctor, that I drive 30 minutes to get to her office, from home. It is worth it to me. She also has great ladies for her office staff. Both Sharon and Robyn are caring, and helpful. They have done a great job, taking care of my various needs over the last ten and a half years. Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you!

I tried to explain about my problems with heat --not able to cool down and how my new medication would be making this problem worst.... she just brushed it off without getting a clear picture of how my problem with cooling down is and could be potentially dangerous

April 26, 2013

I would recommend this facility and my health provider to everyone!

April 22, 2013

dr Legant is caring and conscientious

April 19, 2013

Dr Legant ordered an echo cardiogram before oncotype test results were back since I did not need chemo according to her this test was unnecessary and an expense I cannot afford. She had given me very strong impressions that we would be doing chemo or I would have asked that the test be postponed

March 11, 2013

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr. Legant!

March 11, 2013
