Specialties

Dr. Clarence W Legerton III has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Could care less

Dr legerton was more concerned with his time schedule than my pain. He seemed to be an elitist physician who had formed his opinion it appeared before I had even walked into his office.

Talks over patients/Doesn't actually Listen

I feel like I'm herded in and out like cattle. It seems like you're just there to move as many patients through as possible, to make the most money. He doesn't actually listen to what the patient is saying, and speaks way too fast back at them...to a fault. He would not get my reccomendation due to his abrupt attitude and speaking to his patients as if they are his children.

Professional and Personal

I have been seeing Dr Legerton for a number of years. He diagnosed me acurately for a problem that other doctors could not seem to pinpoint at all. He cares very much about how the whole patient feels, what is going on in his/her life, level of pain and also understands. Before you leave his office he wants to make sure he understands you and that you understand your treatment and when and why you will take certain medications. Other than having an occasionally long wait time, I am very pleased with Dr. Legerton, his practice and his staff.

He Cares About the Whole Person

Dr. Legerton is one of the most caring physicians I have ever known. He not only spends time talking with his patients, he listens intently to what they have to say as well. Although I usually have to wait longer in his office to see him, I don't mind like I do in other offices because I know he is spending time with someone else who needs him too.
