Specialties

Dr. Peter Liggett has the following 2 specialties

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

  • 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.

HORRIBLE

He is a terrible doctor and should have his license revoked. Aside from messing up my eye surgery, I hear him sexually harassing his female staff.

Time to retire

I saw him for years, but lately he is getting more difficult to understand. He is chronically behind/late and doesn't seem to care. He's more interested in talking on his cell phone than to his (previously) loyal patients.

A scary diagnosis, a positive experience

My diagnosis of ocular melanoma really threw me for a loop. Dr. Liggett has been wonderful throughout the 4 1/2 years I've been going to him. He has always answered my questions and explained what he was doing and why. I have found Dr. Liggett to be very personable and to have a good sense of humor, which has helped me so much in dealing with this. In addition, his office staff has been extremely nice and helpful. I have no complaints with my care and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Liggett.
