Lexington, SC |
I was referred to Dr Edward Woody’s ENT clinic by urgent care. I experienced the worst care at his clinic and feel traumatized! I explained I was in a lot of pain and anxious due to my ear drum being on the verge of rupturing. He then proceeded to do the procedure to cut my eardrum open as I pleaded with him to stop he told me 2 year olds do this all the time and to hold still, I felt he was implying I was a baby. He neglected to give me any discharge/aftercare information not a follow up appt.

Woody seemed intelligent and friendly, but like 99% of doctors these days, very obviously had zero interest in finding out what was wrong with me. He interrupted me mid-sentence every single time I tried explaining my symptoms, told me I was just imagining a year-long condition that has put me in the ER, "prescribed" some over-the-counter pills, and sent me on my way after maybe 90 seconds total. Modern healthcare is a joke. Don't waste your time or pay the big $ that these people are in it for

Dr. Woody found 2 brain meningiomas. He really saved my life before serious issues could arise.

Shady billing practices. Charged me for surgical procedure for removing wax from my ear. Oh not to mention he punctured my ear drum in the process. Cost me copay plus 20%
Treated me for tonsillitis but didn't even look at my throat at follow up. My ears were hurting and instead of thinking how to help me he just made fun of me ... Wear ear protection when running your chainsaw and Harley, he joked. Staff was nice but like they knew he was an idiot and were apologizing. I'm disgusted with how he treated me.
