Dr Woodward is very professional, precise and a perfectionist. I have had multiple surgeries with her and I recommend her being that I am a very challenging patient. I am willing to discuss this with anyone who needs additional information regarding Dr Woodward. Charles (Chuck) Dooley Cdooley999@gmail.com 919-345-5900.

I cannot believe all the positive reviews on Julie Woodward. She ruined my face with lasers and has no idea what she is doing. After she destroys you, she lies and disappears. Good luck getting before photos without a law suit. Every doctor I speak with knows this about her. She plays like a plastic surgeon- but she is not

Dr. Julie Woodward operated several times correcting ectropion in both eyes. She also treated me for facial infection & scarring that occurred during an accident. I am happy with the results. She is a lovely, caring and empathetic physician who is a very skilled professional. She is highly recommended by me.
