I went to Dr. Ludwig for my pregnancy and when seeing her at my first OB oppointment she made me feel very comfortable. She was very caring and thoughtful and I left there feeling secure about the doctor I chose to deliver my child. She was very informative and gave me a great information packet to use as a guide for whats to come.

One of the most caring doctors that I have ever been to. She really listens to you and thinks about your care beyond the appointment. There is usually a long wait to see her, but it is only because she takes her time with her patients. I will take that any day over a doctor who rushes through the appointment.
