Dr. Woodson replaced my knee on 11/1/18. At Los ALAMITOS Med Center. It was as excellent experience all around. I love my new knee. Dr. Woodson was professional, open about what to expect and honest about what I was facing. I followed his instructions and have a great outcome. The program at Los Al, called the Triple Crown Commitment, is amazingly focused on helping achieve the best patient outcomes. I have recommended Dr. Woodson and Los Al a number of times already

Dr. Woodson and his staff were top notch and I would highly recommend them for anyone in need of orthopedic surgery. Dr. Woodson took the time to answer all of my questions and explained my injury and his approach very clearly which made me feel comfortable choosing him for my surgery. The surgery coordinator Estela whom I worked with was very helpful in getting everything I needed situated in a timely fashion and the rest of the staff that I interacted with were very professional.

I recently had hip replacement surgery and am now walking, without pain and almost off a cane in just under 5 weeks. I cannot recommend Dr. Woodson, his staff. the Los Alamitos Hospital and their program highly enough. I am 73 and am returning to work -- clinical psychologist in private practice - and driving easily tomorrow! Cannot be more pleased - and relieved.

Dr. Woodson is wonderful! I have had two knee replacements (two years apart). I had been putting the first surgery off for 18 years. Decided to have the surgery when I couldn't keep up with the grandchildren and I have had no complications. I can now walk and stand without pain. Dr. Woodson was chosen by me because of his fellowship with Dr. Jackson, retired. Dr. Woodson comes in and sits down and listens. I had the occasion to meet his parents and he is a chip off the block. They were so nice.

What a wonderful experience with Dr. Woodson and his staff. The most pleasant, informative and caring Dr.s office I've been to Dr. Woodson is the BEST, I had 3 referrals for my knee replacement and of course I will refer anyone for his orthopedic help. He is so worth the drive if you live out of town. Estella , his office manager is the absolute BEST. She goes out of her way for patients, and really cares. She is a sweetheart and a gem. I am so very grateful for this Dr. Love & blessing Dr. W

Dr. Woodson is the best! He has the best bedside manner and takes time with his patients. I have never had a bad visit with Dr. Woodson or his office and I've been seeing him for years. Usually it's a chore coming to the doctor, but with Dr. Woodson you feel you're visiting a family member. Great doctor, great staff, great care!

Dr. Woodson performed a total hip replacement on me. I have had other surgical procedures in the past by other doctors, this hip procedure was the smoothest and non-problematic I have ever had. He instills great confidence and trust in treatment. I would recommend him way above any other surgeon I have ever dealt with.
