Helped me and my son tremendously.

Superb doctor who not only discovered a rare but important heart condition in me but also found it in my son! Every other doctor told me there was nothing wrong with me but through Dr. L's persistence, intelligence and really listening to my symtoms, we now know what is wrong and what to do about it.

A+++++

This office has the NICEST staff. I was in the ER just yesterday for chest pain. The ER doctor recommended Dr. Ludington. I called this morning and by 10am I received a call back saying she can see me TODAY! I feel better already. Dr. spent a lot of time with me and felt like she really listened. AMAZING service. A++++

Wonderful, caring, very patient and easy to understand.

Went to see Dr. Ludington upon my primary care doctor's recommendation. She got me in quickly, took time to listen to my (complex) story and really helped me understand what was wrong (an aneurysm). She even drew pictures at our appointment to explain what was happening. I appreciate her so much for being so patient with me!

I feel great, thanks to Dr, Ludington

THE best referral I have ever gotten from my Primary Care Doctor was to see Dr. Ludington. I have high blood pressure that my doctor has struggled with to control. When I got to Dr. L's, everyone was warm and friendly and made me feel at ease. The office is very peaceful for a doctor's office too. Susana is awesome, knows a lot and is very helpful in answering my questions. Dr. L sat down with me, listened to my story, looked at my medicines in details and helped me change them. In the end, I even got off one of my medicines! I am so happy! I have seen her for over a year now and I feel about 10 years younger! Thank you!

Super doctor!

Dr. Ludington has saved my father's life not once but twice in the past year. She is excellent with the elderly, helps keep their medications down and is really understanding of their special needs. Highly recommend if you have an elderly parent you are worried about.
