Dr. James Ludwick was born in Detroit, Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan in 1994 with a B.S. in Chemistry. His first professional job was at Parke-Davis Pharmaceuticals where he performed prep-scale synthetic organic chemistry for investigational drug testing. While working as a bench chemist satisfied his scientific curiosity, it left out a major character trait Dr. Ludwick inherited from his late grandfather – his love of interacting with people.
Upon realizing that chemistry wasn’t his true calling, Dr. Ludwick applied to medical school and graduated from the Medical College of Ohio in 1999 in the top 10% of his class, gaining him acceptance.
After completing his residency in 2004, Dr. Ludwick received a faculty appointment with Baylor as an Assistant Professor and split his time between Texas Children’s Hospital, The Methodist Hospital, and The Ben Taub Hospital. Extremely interested in Obstructive Sleep Apnea as a resident, Dr. Ludwick completed a Sleep Medicine Fellowship at Baylor in 2005. He subsequently passed both the Otolaryngology and Sleep Medicine Board examinations and remains one of the very few sleep fellowship trained and dual board certified physicians in these two specialties.
Dr. Ludwick opened his private practice in West Houston in April 2006 while maintaining his Assistant Professor position at Baylor and staffing the Ben Taub Hospital part-time teaching residents and medical students until January 2010. He continues to be invited to provide didactic sessions to residents and medical students.
Dr. Ludwick has many interests and hobbies but what he enjoys most is spending time with his two children, Logan and Tess. Dr. Ludwick also enjoys bike riding, Weight lifting, golf, water sports, snow skiing, and cars. He enjoys being outdoors, even in the hot and humid weather of Houston!
