Patient Comments (3)

Dr is great but always overbookes thinks to is perfectly acceptable to make patients wait 3-4 hrs after appointment time till they are seen and this is every visit her time is so valuable that u get charged 150$ if u have to cancel but your time is not important to her

Dr. Ludwig's schedules are managed by each clinic, not the doctor herself. Any overbooking is an oversight by the clinic, not the doctor. For new and some returning patients, the entire office visit from start to finish may take 3-4 hours, most of which is spent with Dr. Ludwig discussing your condition and treatment options, but it would certainly never take this long before being seen by the doctor. This method allows Dr. Ludwig to provide the exceptional care our patients deserve.
