    making so many expensive and unnecessary test.and prescribing very hard medication befor the diagnosis . I had a very hard time after taken the medication ,they asked me to go to be seen by the Dr. When I went, I was seen by the nurse only and was adviced to go to the ER.

    I was recommended by the chief of the emergency room to see Dr. Ludington after a visit for chest pain. He was absolutely right, she is a superb doctor! The staff was very nice and got me in within 24 hours of my ER visit. Turns out I have stomach troubles but my heart checked out great. Thank goodness for the reassurance! I highly recommend Dr. Ludington and her staff to anyone looking to make sure there is nothing wrong with their heart.
