"I can make you look pretty again, or at least what you looked like before, whatever you called that."
―Dr. Ludwig[src]

Dr. Patricia Ludwig is a doctor for supernatural beings on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American co-starring actress Marcia de Rousse, Dr. Ludwig, pronounced "LOOD-vig", makes her debut on the episode "Scratches" in the series' second season, and has spent many years treating illnesses acquired by supernatural and other otherworldly beings. A recurring character on the series' second, fourth and seventh seasons, Dr. Ludwig was last seen on the episode "May Be the Last Time" in the series' seventh, and final, season.




Not scared of anything, Dr. Patricia Ludwig treats vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural beings.

Season 2Edit


Dr. Ludwig is called by Eric after Sookie was poisoned by the claws of a maenad.

Sookie, who has a three-clawed scratch mark down her back, is worked on by Dr. Ludwig. The "doctor" says Sookie has been poisoned. Ludwig pours some kind of acid into Sookie's wounds, then pulls out what looks like a claw. Ludwig removes the poison and Bill is able to give Sookie some of his blood. Pam and Chow return and tell Eric they found human tracks but that the scent was "distinctly animal." Bill will wait at the bar for Sookie to fully recover. Dr. Ludwig is very opinionated and doesn't seem at all intimidated by the vampires, as she tells Bill to back off, and Eric to fuck off as she walks out the door. ("Scratches")

Season 4Edit

"Cold Grey Light of Dawn"Edit


Dr. Ludwig helps Pam

The doctor returns to help Pam with a wrap over her face and body. As she pulls off the strips, Pam curses and demands for her to fix her. She tells Pam that it will not reverse the curse, but she can undo the decomposition of Pam's body. She prescribes Pam several daily injections that she would need to use for eternity. ("Cold Grey Light of Dawn")

Season 7Edit

"May Be the Last Time"Edit

Dr Ludwig visits Bill, after Sookie calls her to help. Sookie asks if her fae blood might be responsible for Bill's rapid onset Hep V and mentions that she's related to Niall. After Dr. Ludwig earlier bragged that she's afraid of nothing and no one, she appears terrified of Sookie's Faery lineage and runs out of Bill's house. Later Sookie asks Niall about it, and he says it's probably because their family has killed so many dwarves. ("May Be the Last Time")


  • Dr. Ludwig's answering machine states that she is not accepting new patients.
