Dr Woodruff was kind and patient and knew the right things to do for my problem. I am very impressed with him as a doctor and a person!
in Rapid City , SD |
Last minute cancellation for surgery, have to get loose tooth removed first as he says he's worried about infection? Never heard of that before. But also they still waiting for approval from insurance cause they forgot to call our Insurance didn't send in until Friday December 16th @1pm & surgery is 12/19. So I will go to a different surgeon cause this one definitely doesn't have his stuff together. And yes I will be letting the entire Rapid City area know about it. So anyone that is looking for
I am very sorry for the inconvenience that this caused you. I did my best explaining my reasoning for canceling your surgery. We have made changes so instances like yours are not repeated. Under the circumstances, I did not feel safe moving forward with surgery as I felt that your dental problems put you at risk of catastrophic complications. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience that this caused you, but I will err on the side of patient safety every time. I wish you the best going forward.
