Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

dr. Ludwig is an amazing Dr. He performed my 2nd back surgery in 2006 & after surgery I felt as if I had a new body because I had minor pain during my recovery & since I fully recovered I had no other issues nor pain and it's been over 12years. I would go back to him without question & I would also highly recommend him to anyone as I've done thus far and they had an excellent outcome as well.

I was referred by a friend to Dr. Ludwig. I had recently had a failed lumbar surgery by another Surgeon & hospital. Dr. Ludwig took one look at the 3 MRI'S & knew immediately the issue. He set me up with Dr. Block for a Nerve Block to help get temporary relief. He also set me up with Dr. Charles Sansur. Together this Amazing team went into action. Dr. Ludwig is compassionate, explains in laymans terms, Positive & Great bedside manner. I Thank God for my new Team! Highly Recommend!

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
