Ratings for Dr. William J. Ledger
Dr. Ledger is the quintessential Doctor, Medical Scientist, Professional Leader and Listener, as well as a Genuinely, Compassionate and Caring human being. Clearly, Dr. Ledger has all the attributes, competencies and virtues of an outstanding Physician and Friend. I sure do miss you, Dr. Ledger!!! I sure to wish medical schools were graduating more men and women like you.
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.
