I am so happy my primary care doctor recommended Dr. Ludington's office to me! She was able to see me under an emergency basis in less than 24 hours, saving me a trip to the ER. She quickly diagnosed me with panic attacks and ruled out bad heart disease! I am so thankful to know everything is ok. I am now taking my elderly parents to see her as well. The staff is really nice and accommodating to my parents' special needs and do everything they can to make my mom and dad comfortable!

Fantastic office staff. Got me in within a day of calling. Very responsive. The doctor spent 45 minutes with me, really listened to my issues and recommended an echocardiogram. Afterwards, I was reassured that everything was normal and I am very grateful for this information. Awesome office!

making so many expensive and unnecessary test.and prescribing very hard medication befor the diagnosis . I had a very hard time after taken the medication ,they asked me to go to be seen by the Dr. When I went, I was seen by the nurse only and was adviced to go to the ER.

I was recommended by the chief of the emergency room to see Dr. Ludington after a visit for chest pain. He was absolutely right, she is a superb doctor! The staff was very nice and got me in within 24 hours of my ER visit. Turns out I have stomach troubles but my heart checked out great. Thank goodness for the reassurance! I highly recommend Dr. Ludington and her staff to anyone looking to make sure there is nothing wrong with their heart.
