Mc Lean, VA |
Wodajo is Definitely a doctor that makes you feel as if you are a number, not a person or a patient. I would never return to Dr Wodajo or let anyone I know see him. He has NO compassion. I am a competitive runner, and before even introducing himself, or getting my name, he was cutting my foot off- which would have done nothing for my metastatic melanoma! NEVER see this Dr!

My experiance with dr wodajo has been great. He has done 3 surgeries on me, and he has done a great job on all three. He is very nice and is very good at explaining things. I could not have asked for a better expieriance

Dr. Wodajo treated my family member with absolute disrespect and poor bedside manner. When describing the results to my other family members who were in the waiting room, he left early because of a personal phone call and failed to ever follow up. Before leaving, he failed to share important medical information to his patient, and even sent my family member home with inaccurate information on how to handle their bandage - which could have resulted in an infection. Horrible experience. One Star.
