How likely are you to recommend Dr. Woodson?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Woodson is one of the top surgeons in the state. But what makes him distinguished from any other doctor is his attention to his patients. He never leaves his patients alone with their, often big, frightening problem. Dr. Woodson takes active part in their recovery, helping them in any way possible. In my case Dr Woodson thought out-of-the-box to use surgical ideas in order to save my knee and allow me to lead active lifestyle. Any of my concerns have always been addressed with great attention. Additional x rays, ct scans were available any time he thought they might help make right decisions for rehabilitation. I had back problem causing me a lot of pain and, although it was not his specialty, Dr Woodson provided a referral for a back mri, discussed it with me afterwards when I came to check the knee progress. Dr. Woodson’s area of expertise is extensive and he has empathy and desire to help his patient.
