What People Say About Dr. James Ludwick, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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 was professional and friendly while explaining my treatment options. He is never pushed me into a specific treatment plan. He clearly explained the pros and cons and the anticipated costs.

I am a new patient with Dr. Ludwick, and my first office visit was a really good experience. Dr. Ludwick did an exceptional job of showing and telling me the details of my medical problem, explaining treatment options, and the risks and benefits of each.

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

Dr. Ludwick solicits and creates reviews to try to hide the truth that he is a bad physician. I hope the truth comes out that he is horrible and does not treat patients well. I don't know how he is able to sleep at night with the way he treats patients. From the moment you meet him, he will only be interested in money - not helping you with your health problems. Please look elsewhere for your ENT needs - there are many physicians in the area who are good and competent. Do not be tricked.

Dr. Ludwick has really improved my life because he diagnosed my severe sleep apnea, started me on a CPAP machine and sees me about once a year to check my progress. Very thorough doctor

I had serious lifelong sinus problems and several other medical conditions that complicated my treatment and made surgery more challenging. Doctor Ludwick did the surgery and called me the evening of the surgery to make sure I was not having any issues. I would also note that the surgery staff at West Houston Surgery Center see Dr. Ludwick all the time and many of them commented very positively to me on the professional demeanor and surgical skill of Dr. Ludwick when I was having my surgery.

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.

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.

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.
