Dr. David S Ludwig has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Please be careful with Dr. Ludwig. He will very freely prescribe pills. He spends the first half of the session simply reviewing your file while you sit on the couch in awkward silence. He then has you come back as often as possible, presumably to get an extra insurance payment. His bedside manner is awful. His office assistant who takes your co-pay is beyond rude. My advice is to find another psychiatrist.
I have been seeing Dr. Ludwig for 5 or so years now, and I completely disagree with the negative reviews. Yes, he does read your file at the beginning of the appointment, but isn't that better than him not having his memory refreshed? I find him to be very careful and very analytical with his treatment. He always weighs all options and is willing to listen to your input. He adjusts your medication in increments, if necessary, so as to avoid severe reactions. He listens to all of your issues and is very deliberative. He is a nice and genial guy, too. I mean, he has called me out of the blue when he has had follow up thoughts. Find a doctor in Manhattan who does that and takes insurance.... Yes, his receptionist is not a pleasant person, but who cares, she is not the one treating me....
I just want to say that he is the by far the WORST Dr. I have ever been to. I wish i read all his reviews before going and seeing him, but i as well by many were refered by another DR. EVERYTHING NEGITIVE that everyone is saying is true. He pushed so many pills on me and i ended up in the hospital. His assistant is so RUDE. He is most concern with your co-pay and making you come in more then you should so he can get that CASH. Please do not put your trust in this man and struggle as i did, i should have been more aware of how much he was taking advantage of me with the pills, but i TRUSTED him as you should a Dr. I never make posts on anyones sites but HAD to get the word out that he is very dangerous and not someone you should trust your health to. Thanks and best of luck
