Patient Comments (1)
in Piedmont, SC |
Had a cyst removed from the back of my neck. Excellent bedside manner. Operation was near painless with the most minimal pain for a short time after. Dr. Woolen explained as he went along and the stitches were hand sewn with more than the ER would give someone, ensuring minimal scarring. Dr. Woolen is old school cool !
