One of the worst doctor I have had contact with. Appointment last 5m and he was more interested in asking me about what I did for a living than trying to understand what was wrong with me. Got an MRI done and waited 8 days (!) for him to release the results, even though I called everyday asking for the results. Ends up I needed surgery and I just waited 8 days in extreme pain and ended up delaying my recovery.

Dr. Woody preformed hand surgery on me and saved all three of my fingers one of which was barely attached when I saw him! He has great caring staff and he has good bedside manner and great personality! He was definitely God sent during one of the most painful experiences of my life. Thanks to Dr. Woody and his kind staff who are always helpful!!

Woody blotched a simple elbow surgery for me - had to convince him that the surgery needed to be repeated to remove bone debris that was left after the first surgery. Ruptured a blood vessel in my arm on the first surgery causing permanent discoloration to the elbow. Did not seem to take any responsibility for the tourniquet being too tight which caused the excessive bleed and further complications.
