Dr. Barry Ludwig, MD
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.

Dr. Ludwig has the friendliest staff, and they are very punctual, I hardly ever end up waiting. Not only does this man have a family but treats his patients like family. Recommend him to anyone looking for a Neurologist that won't just dismiss what you say, and will work through the issue with you until you are healed .

He is the best Neurologist Dr. he saved my life two times
in Santa Clarita, CA |
Dr. Ludwig is an amazing doctor. I've been a patient of his since I was a student at UCLA. He saved my life by accurately diagnosing and treating my condition. I've seen many doctors and I can only say this about him and I will forever be grateful. Any patient should trust and heed his advice. He knows what he's doing. I highly recommend him and only wish he was my doctor sooner!

I have been a patient of Dr. Ludwig's for several years (I suffer from seasonal migraine headaches). He is unique in that he has found solutions to help me cope where others did not. He is knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate in his approach. And Anna, who supports Dr. Ludgwig at his office, is also highly compassionate and helpful. There were plenty of times, before I found this doctor, where I felt helpless when I suffered. It is reassuring to have found him to help me manage the pain.
