    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.

    He very honest and takes very good care of his patients . He will do everything he can to fix whatever problem you have. Best Dr. I ever had.
