Dr. Ludwick performed a Vidian Nerve Section for me in March and May of 2017. It has been a wonderful result. I had been suffering for a very long time with what I called a "faucet nose" that I couldn't turn off. I had tried everything. He told me about this procedure and since he did it, I have only had a runny nose when I have been outside for a long time or when I get too hot for too long. It has been a miraculous change for me. I feel so much better and am saving a lot of money on Puffs.

We had wonderful experience. He explained the procedure, all outcomes was same as doctor explained before the surgery. Doctor Ludwick has mastered his profession well.

Lack of knowledge. Incompetent. Unsafe. Rude.
in Houston, TX |
I was so sad to see this doctor treat my mother in a condescending manner. He does not care about his patients. When she asked him to repeat the diagnosis, he was impatient and condescending and ask if she understands English. My mother left in tears. Do not do it. There are plenty of other doctors that would give you better care.

rude behavior. not competent in diagnosis, treatment, or surgical skills.
Houston, TX |
Bad patient care. Not only lacks empathy but also lacking in competence.
Houston, TX |
Poor bedside manner. One of the rudest physicians I have ever encountered. Needs to learn how to better communicate. Seems to cover up his lack of knowledge by being condescending and arrogant.

Terrible he was very rushed never NEVER coming back to him!

He is patient, explains everything with graphics on a flat screen, and thorough. He sensed my apprehension about doing the sinus balloon procedure under local anesthetic. He explained that he uses 3 different numbing agents: lidocaine spray, then a gel, and only when I couldn't feel a thing, injections. He only does this in-office procedure before lunch, or at the end of the day, so he has no other patients waiting for him. Best of all, it worked! I can breathe!
