Dr. William J. Ledger's Ratings
Dr. Ledger gave me back my quality of life. I had been misdiagnosed and therefore given the wrong treatment by numerous gynecologists over a 14-year period. Dr. Ledger got the right diagnosis & treatment on my first visit. He also does the gentlest and most thorough pelvic exam, explaining everything along the way. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word & simply one of the best doctors in the world. I have been a nurse for 40 years and I can say for certain that there are very few like him.
I have been going to Dr. Ledger since 1979. He has helped me with infertility problems. He delivered my 3 sons. He is now guiding me through perimenopause. He is extremely brilliant and a very sincere and caring man. You cannot find a better doctor. His knowledge is amazing.
He's a at Cornell, and the whole office set-up feels more like a crowded public hospital than a private doc or clinic. Dr. Ledger's from the old-fashioned school of MDs who don't tell you why they're doing what they're doing; he prescribed a treatment protocol for me, but didn't explain it. I'm still wondering what the purpose was.
Dr. Ledger gave up on me, he told me I was too sensitive and he didn't know what to do for me- he stopped responding to my emails. I have vulvadynia which I had for 3 years. I did expensive dna testing which was useless. He gave me a petroleum based steroid ointment which caused the worst yeast infection. It turns out now that was probably the beginning of another major issue which is that I'm type 1 diabetic. Yet neither he nor any of the other gyn considered that. I still have vulvadynia but a lot of the constant burning symptoms are not nearly as bad now that I'm controlling my blood sugars, yet this was never considered as a possible cause by any of my gyn. I'm seeing another gyn now, estrogen cream helped me a lot, but I'm off it currently do to dvt in my leg. I hope one day to be completely cured of vulvadynia and to have sex and a relationship again.
Dr Ledger saved my life. I had a infected hematoma in my stomach post c section from a diff dr. He took the case when noone else wanted to take it for fear of lawsuits. He was compassionate, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. He was able to cure me with the least invasive form of treatment. He promised me and my family that i would get better and i did. I owe him everything for saving my life. When i got better he gave me a hug and i actually saw tears in his eyes...he is the sweetest person ever!
I have been seeing Dr. Ledger for over 20 years. He is one of the most caring, compassionate, thorough, attentive doctors I've seen. He listens to what you have to say - he isn't dismissive like many doctors can be. He helped me when others couldn't. A great man!
Dr. Ledger understands that everyone is different. You are not just number to him. He is kind and compassionate and when you tell him you feel something, HE BELIEVES YOU!! I've been to other doctors who think they could just go by a book and treat you and tell you how or IF you're going to get better. Dr. Ledger gives the emotional strength (as well as medical) to get well. I sincerely love the man and I actually celebrate his birthday as though it were a holiday because I don't know what I would do if he weren't born.
