Wanted to send my condolences to his family. Dr. Leggat was a great doctor. He. Delivered 2 or my 4 children. I had a terrible last pregnancy not finding out I was pregnant until I lost one of my twins, fgh wanted to do a complete DNC which would cause my live fetus to also parrish. I refused of course and went straight to Dr. leggat who took great care of me and my son, though he didn't deliver this time he cared for us till I delivered. I have thought of him often over the years & tell my story to many others. I appreciate Dr Leggat taking the time for me and my babies and feel it's because of him my son survived and was born healthy. To me he is a hero! Thank you Dr. Leggat!! ❤️ I hav...e pics with Dr. Leggat holding one of my daughters, I will post them once I locate them 🙂Read more
