I was disappointed that my latest appointment had to be scheduled over a month after I called. However, I do understand that doctors are also people who have lives away from the office. Once i got in to see him, I was very pleased with the experience. He is knowledgable, competent, and personable. I will continue to see him with my issues and highly recommend him to others. I do hate waiting, but do understand that it is sometimes unavoidable. He is at least apologetic when that happens.

My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Woods and since he and his staff are wonderful and caring people we don't mind traveling the extra miles from our house to be seen by Dr. Woods. ALL the staff are very personable and friendly. My husband is being seen for skin cancer and Dr. Woods is very thorough in his exams. A++ for Dr. and staff

in Gilbert, AZ |
I saw Dr. Woods this morning for the first time and was impressed by him, his staff and office! I was brought back to the exam room a few minutes before my appointment time and had to wait all of 1 minute, if that, before he came in! He was polite, professional and very thorough in his exam of my skin. He answered all my questions, did not make me feel rushed and explained the treatment plan in detail. He seems very knowledgeable and I feel like I am in good hands with his medical care!
Phoenix, AZ |
My husband and I have been to him quite a few times. Very caring, careful and competent.
