My appt was at 3. I did not get called until 4. I was x rayed and told to wait in the exam room until the Dr. came in. He came in at 4:50 and told me I had Arthritis (which I already knew) and to use Advil and ride a bike. No questions asked about my life style, no suggestions such as knee brace or ice or heat or fish oil ( all suggestions my family Dr. at least gave me) also no apology for making me wait 2 hrs for him to spend 3 min in the room with me. But was sure to tell me where to pay.

40 years ago dr. Woods made it so I'm able to walk today. I have returned to him several times and have always been pleased.
