My daughter Thalia has been a patient of Dr Louden’s for almost 8 years now and he has saved her life many times. She has a huge list of severe medical issues and is not able to advocate for herself. Throughout everything she has gone through he has been an amazing dr and surgeon. Both him and his team are extremely attentive to my daughters health. He is wonderful at listening to my husband and I as her advocates. He truly cares about her well being. We are extremely grateful to him!

Jillian in Orange, CA – Nov 04, 2017
Dr. Loudon was the on call trauma surgeon the night of my son's TBI. I will be forever grateful. He's a wonderfully compassionate, brilliant, experienced doctor. I trust him completely. His office staff are helpful and kind, especially Cat. It's a scary,stressful time and my entire family felt very safe and confident in his care. It was out great fortune and blessing to have him as our surgeon. I have great respect and admiration for Dr. Loudon and highly recommended him.

If you have a smail child (ours is 9 month old) and seeing this Dr. for just a concern on the shape of the head and your baby's Pedriatrician doesn't see a cocern with your baby's cranial development, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get a second opinion from another Dr. Our 9th Month old was wrongly misdiagnosed.
