Dr. Ludwig is enthusiastic and detail-oriented in caring exclusively for adult patients. He believes in developing a strong patient-physician relationship through honest communication, good listening, and a holistic, multimodality approach to treatment. He is passionate about helping patients find and recognize their health, rather than simply focusing on disease treatment and prevention. Dr. Ludwig has a broad wellness focus that includes the importance of a healthy diet based around plants, laughter and fun, sunshine and fitness, friendship and community, work-life balance, positive reinforcement, mindfulness based stress reduction, and resilience strategies.
What a potential patient should know about Dr. Ludwig is that he will spend the time to really get to know you, will help you find health in body, mind, and spirit, and is well-versed in both internal medicine and a holistic approach healing. Dr. Ludwig is board certified in internal medicine and fellowship trained in osteopathic medicine. Therefore he frequently uses his highly trained hands-on approach to diagnose and treat patients without the need for additional tests, medications, or specialists, but also can differentiate when tests, medications, and specialists can be truly helpful.
Dr. Ludwig’s philosophy of care statement: No person or problem is too complex or too hopeless, and “To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease” – A.T. Still, MD, DO (Founder of osteopathic medicine, c. 1899).
