    John Legge, MD is a board-certified Neurologist with fellowship-training in Movement Disorders. He is located in Palm Springs at the Eisenhower Health Center at South Palm Canyon.

    After attending medical school at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Legge served as Chief Resident at VCU in Richmond, Virginia. He is a graduate of the Palatucci Leaderhip Forum, which is a physicians’ grassroots advocacy training program hosted by the American Academy of Neurology. He  completed a subspecialty fellowship program in Movement Disorders at the University of California San Diego.

    Dr. Legge was always interested in sciences and was influenced to attend medical school watching his family care for his grandmother who was afflicted with dementia. Her geriatrician had a large influence on his decision to become a physician. “I was originally going to be a family practice geriatrician,” states Dr. Legge. “But during my neurology rotation in medical school became fascinated with the brain, and I never looked back!”

    Dr. Legge emphasizes communication with his patients. “I listen to my patients tell their story. From that I find out what is important to them which provides me the understanding on how best to guide their treatment plan,” reflects Dr. Legge. “We need to be on the same page and develop a strategy together – one that the patient will buy-in to.”

    Clinical care is a primary emphasis in Dr. Legge’s work, although he is also involved in quality improvement and clinical education. Outside of work, Dr. Legge enjoys traveling with his husband, visiting wineries and breweries, trying new restaurants and attempting his hand at amateur astronomy. He is an avid dog-lover and is technologically savvy as he enjoys tinkering around with computers and playing video games. He is passionate about providing quality and comprehensive care for the community of movement disorders patients.
