Dr. Woodruff knew exactly what was causing my pain and helped me get better while keeping invasive treatment and surgery a last resort. I am thankful that he took the time to explain everything to me. I recommend him to all my family and friends.

Terrible. Not interested in solving or treating, just surgery. The entire appointment was a waste of time, not to mention he was over an hour late and spent less than 5 minutes with me. Did not even ask me questions or ask what I have done in the past. Take your time and do some research and find someone who cares about patient care and is innovative.

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
