(CNN) -- How did your last doctor's appointment go? If you're like most patients, your answer might be "too quickly." You've probably noticed how busy your doctor is as he or she zips in and out of exam rooms. As a result, your visit is getting shorter -- the average time a doc has to spend with each patient has dwindled to a speedy seven minutes, research shows.
Thank you for visiting Ludlowe Center on the web, however, please stop by soon to visit us in person and see our state-of-the-art Passport Rehabilitation suite, located in our new rehabilitation center and re-modeled center. Throughout 2012 and 2013, many physical changes are taking place at Ludlowe Center, but one thing that hasn't changed is the people that make Ludlowe Center what it is . . . our caring staff.
The staff at Ludlowe Center is committed to providing the highest quality nursing and rehabilitative care to our patients and residents. This group of highly trained professionals strive to meet the patients' medical and short-term rehabilitation needs, all while providing the highest quality of care while maximizing the functional independence of each person we serve.
"There are times when a family cannot adequately care for a parent and must turn over the task to those who are more able. When my mom was admitted we felt confident that she would be able to return home after the usual 20 days of therapy. It became apparent that she could no longer live independently and we had to make a hard decision, but there was much relief when we learned of the good caregiving situation at Ludlowe. We are all so very grateful."
"My sincerest thanks to Ludlowe for your excellent care. My father entered the center after a grievous five weeks in the hospital. Faced with many health-related difficulties, it would take some sort of miracle to build back his strength. Fortunately, within a few short weeks, that miracle happened due to the wonderful staff at Ludlowe. The constant care made him better able to endure his situation and keep his focus on his recovery and he regained his ability to sit up, stand and eventually walk on his own again."
"I am writing this note to let everyone know how much I enjoyed being at Ludlowe Center for Health and Rehabilitation. Everyone was so nice and courteous. All I can say is thank you so much."
