I saw Dr. Ludwig 4 years ago and again this December 2017. I was very upset this last time. He did not go over over my films with me or give me any idea of where I stood with my severe neck pain or what to do? No answers at all and he was in and out with little compassion for my pain

Dr. Ludwig perform surgery on my lower lumbar installed Hardware in my back and took away 20 years of constant pain. He is one of the best back doctors out of four surgeries I have ever had and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
