Dr Woods has been an exceptional ophthalmologist to my entire family. I first met the good doctor when I lacerated my cornea while cutting hedges. I had never been to an eye doctor before. His ability to relieve my immediate pain, patch m eye, and to Implement a treatment without surgery was exemplary. He is the only ophthalmologist we will use. Sincerely, Steven Tromer

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Woods for over 10 years. He has a nice demeanor and provides excellent care. I trust him with my children's and my own eyes. He isn't incentivized to sell us anything unlike 'vision centers' staffed by non-MD's. He has been on all our insurance plans despite that they have changed many times over the years.

Poor scheduling 2 visits in a row and this will be my last visit. I spent 2 boring hours in that office waiting for 10 minutes off his time not counting the dilation period. Donald Woods is a nice man but since this is the 2nd time this wait has happened it may be the new normal there. In the future I will only visit physicians who honor the appointment time. If you go to this office ignore the woman who tells you to come 15 minutes before the appointment time. unnecessary and adds to long wait!
