Specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Not impressed

I think finding a good dr is like looking for a needle in a haystack!! All I can say about Dr Ludwig is - I wasn't impressed... didn't feel like she heard my concerns and her beside manner was lacking compassion - when you've been suffering chronically for over 2 years it's a little annoying to not get support for the people who are getting paid to help you! And the search continues

Love, love, love her. From the very first visit she has been the best dr. by far. Busy but the best by far. Would recommend my mother, my children, best friend and/or new comer to this area.

Horrendous. Dismissive and pompous. Missed very severe illnesses after attributing my symptoms to "anxiety". Went to a specialist and learned I was very very ill, and much sicker for having been untreated for so long. Run do not walk away from this inexperienced doctor with little medical knowledge.
