Dr. Ludwig's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ludwig "My greatest achievements have been being privileged to take care of so many patients over the course of my career. I enjoy teaching young neurologists, and I am a Clinical Professor of Neurology at UCLA. My long marriage to my wife and my very bright daughter have brought me much joy, and my study of Krav Maga has kept me in shape and will hopefully allow me to live and practice medicine for years to come."
