Spine surgery was botched in 2003 by a Hartford orthopedic surgeon who was visibly shaken in our follow-up appointment. Dr. Yue at Yale-New Haven Hospital would not operate because of scar tissue. He would install a three vertebrae replacement unit 'that would make me three inches taller'. A unit failed and was withdrawn from the market. A Norwich surgeon suggested abdominal entry, long outdated. Dr Woodard successfully fused L3-L4-L5 in 2016. Really, Five Stars! Baptist meals/staff are great!

I had an initial appointment with Dr Woodard in mid-October, he determined a microdiscectomy was the appropriate course for remedying my sciatica and was able to fit me in 20 days later. At a very high pain level before I went in to absolute relief walking out of surgery, Dr Woodard's expertise and skill was the reason I'm walking pain-free today. I'd recommend him and his office to anyone needing back-pain relief. Yes, the office is incredibly busy, but there's a very good reason for that!
in Wellesley Hills, MA |
I have tremendous confidence in dr Woodard. Had a previous surgery with him which was done exquisitely. And his longtime PA was wonderful. Am back for another surgery and by contrast the most frustrating experience with his office staff that I have ever had. No compassion, no timely responses, when they do call you back inadequate and incomplete responses. - blaming changes in support staff and absence of a medical fellow problems. Patients in pain just want respect and honesty. None here

I had two surgeries in 8 weeks because the first one did not work and I am still not fixed. His staff is the rudest and will never get back to you. I don't recommend going to him because the overall experience will be frustrating and pointless. I have never been treated more poorly by office workers. It took one week to get an assistant to call me back when I was having an emergency. Dr. Woodard himself will not talk to you. Only the day of surgery. Worst experience of my life.
in Weston, MA |
The office is so obtuse and hard to deal with that I am giving up and finding another provider, despite my firm belief in Dr. Woodard as a neurosurgeon.
