What our Patients Say

“I’m extremely pleased with Dr. Woodard’s care expertise and abilities. I was not directed to anyone in particular in the practice when my problem arose so I didn’t know what to expect! Dr. Woodard was helpful in explaining my options the procedure etc. and I was pleased with having him as my doctor and surgeon.”

“I’ve never met a doctor as understanding and helpful as Dr. Woodard. Not only did he perform very successful surgery on me, which has been life-changing, but he also has been very understanding and very attentive. The subject matter that he and I deal with is somewhat sensitive and can be embarrassing for a patient but he makes everything very comfortable. I cannot imagine a nicer or more skilled doctor than Dr. Woodard and if I knew him personally outside of the doctor-patient relationship I would try to be friends with him because he’s an extremely nice person as well as a very, very skilled doctor. I can’t say enough about him and I’m thankful for him and his staff.”

“Being a new patient I was very pleased that he explained things so well. He also explained tests that I have coming up. I feel very comfortable with him.”

“I find talking to Dr. Woodard and understanding why a particular course of action is being followed in my treatment is very easy. Any changes in my treatment is fully discussed in understandable terms and I am always asked if I understand and agree to the change.”

“He has given me excellent follow up care since my cancer surgery.”
