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

When I was five years old I had lazy eye surgery by a local Dr. 38 years later, my lazy eye came back and Dr. Ludwig was the ONLY Dr. That would and could correct my eyes through all that scar tissue. She is kind, compassionate and excellent at what she does! I would recommend Dr. Ludwig to anyone! Thanks, Dr. Ludwig for helping me see 100% again!

Dr. Ludwig has performed 2 surgeries on my daughter the first being when she was 23 months old the 2nd when she was just over 3 yrs.old. Shortly after the 2nd surgery my daughter started walking without assistance her eyes no longer appeared crossed and the thickness of her glasses has decreased quite a bit. We love Dr. Ludwig our daughter loves her as well. She cares about her patients you don't just feel like a number with her and we would recommend her to anyone searching for an eye doctor.
