Dr. Woodward's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Woodward "As the chief of oculofacial surgery at Duke, I specialize in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids and orbit as well as the cosmetic laser surgery of the skin. I have published extensively on my work with cosmetic lasers, injectable fillers, neuromodulators, and benign essential blepharospasm in peer-reviewed journals and several textbooks. I speak frequently at both national and international meetings. I also serve on the editorial board of two aesthetic journals and was the first female oculofacial surgeon to be featured on the cover of the Plastic Surgery Practice Magazine. I am also a passionate artist and work with a variety of mediums. I believe that my work as a cosmetic surgeon is an extension of my great love of art."

Excellent service. I am very happy with dr woodwards and the staff.
Pittsboro, NC |
I have been seeing Julie Woodward now for many years for injectables and I would highly recommend her! She has a very artistic eye and her hand with injectables is light. I would not trust another doctor! She does very natural work and not over the top. I find her compassionate and always does what I ask for - never trying to talk me into more! She is the best!
in Durham, NC |
The whole staff is very courteous and professional. It appears they all show their compassion for each patient. Information from the nurses to the doctors are shared and each concern or problem is addressed by the doctors. Both dr woodward and Langelier are very knowledgeable and have been on top of my care.

Do not waste your time with Dr Julie Ann Woodward. In August 2016 I made a appointment and the first available was January 2017. I wanted a good doctor so I waited, looking very forward to having a chance to have a great Doctor. My husband and I drove over to Duke Eye Center in Durham NC. January 2017 On a Sunday because my appointment was Monday.i drove over to spend the night in Durham beacause I live about 5 hours away. Around 6pm I received a voice mail stating the Clinic would be clos
We do apologize for the inconvenience caused by the closures. It was the decision of Duke to cancel all clinics that day due to inclement weather to ensure the safety of traveling patients and the staff. The decision was completely out of Dr. Woodward's hands. We do hope that patients understand that it is no way indicative of the care and experience that will be had under Dr. Woodward. All the best!
