One of worst doctors I have ever visited. Be careful of fake positive reviews on his profiles and be sure to do your homework. Will try to talk you into procedures purely for his profit. Very unethical behavior and distasteful bedside manner.

The procedure that Dr. Luckwick performed for me has improved my life immensely, and I say that after going through pollen season. He is patient and is eager to educate you so you understand what the cause of conditions are and how he can improve them. The whole staff is first class. I highly recommend him.

I went to Dr Ludwick because my issue was being neglected at the VA hospital. Even with my CPAP my nose was closing up at night and I had difficulty sleeping and breathing. Dr. Ludwick provided me with an appointment within a few days and used a camera to detail the issues in my nose. He requested a cat scan of my sinuses which showed another problem and then we set an appointment for office surgery. He performed the surgery, explained exactly what I would experience and he personally called that evening to see how I was doing. I went back today to receive a followup after the surgery and again he used the camera and compared the before and after pictures. I could not believe the difference and I have had no breathing issues since he did the procedures. I am 100% satisified and would highly recommend him.

Fixed my broken nose perfectly! He's very insightful, answered all my questions without hesitation. And has an excellent interactive diagram he uses to explain everything. I can see why people would complain about his bedside manner but I'd prefer a doctor who is good at and very thoroughly understands what he's doing. The staff in his office were very friendly and easy to work with as well.

I had a horrible experience with Dr. Ludwick. First of all he was rude in the beginning. He ask what my problem was and when I tried to explain it to him he told me that he did not want to hear my life history. I should have got up and walked away immediately. He went into my ear and was so rough. He made me extremely dizzy. He then explained the surgery that I needed. I left and barely made it to my car. I was so dizzy and just sick. Throwing up. I called a friend and she called the doctors office. An employee came down and did nothing. He did not try to take me back to the office nor did the Dr. come down to check on me. I left that parking lot and went to the hospital in an ambulance. The Doctors office is connected and he did not even bother to check on me to see if I was O.K. I was there 2 1/2 days. It has taken me over 2 months to get back to some type of normalcy so I can have the recommended surgery with another doctor. I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS DOCTOR AT ALL. VERY UNCARING.

I was referred to Dr. Ludwick by my PCM due to a swelling under my ear. When biopsy and CT scan confirmed cancer, Dr. Ludwick referred me to a surgeon who specialized in the indicated surgery. I believe he made the case that I needed surgery quickly as there was already lymph node involvement. The surgeon squeezed me into his schedule and I had my operation 2 weeks later. I believe his quick action and advocacy may have added years to my life. Furthermore, his willingness to defer to another physician demonstrated a concern for me beyond himself. I trust him completely and recommend him to anyone with an ENT issue.

Up until last year, I couldn't breathe through my nose properly and was uncomfortable most of the time. Upon seeing Dr. Ludwick I underwent surgery a year ago to open up my airways and it was one of the best things I ever did for myself. The surgery was fast (I was out before lunch), painless, and affordable. The healing process was doable even for a wuss like me, and now I couldn't be more thankful that I saw Dr. Ludwick for this procedure. I can finally breathe properly, smell, blow my nose, and my sinus headaches have just about disappeared. I can't recommend this procedure more!

Dr. Ludwick performed an ESS Septoplasty PRITs on me. My headaches are gone and my asthma has greatly improved. Dr. Ludwick explained the procedure very well and eased my fears. Dr. Ludwick is very kind and truly cares. My recovery went exactly as he told me it would...no surprises like some doctors. I highly recommend Dr. Ludwick! Debbie Krause - July 2018
