Dr. Woodhouse's office is nothing less than a circus. I had my first appointment with the doctor in early June. I gave the office staff my driver's license and insurance card upon arrival. They lost that information and needed it again at my next appointment. Okay, but then I was asked for the cards and ID a THIRD time before leaving the second appointment. Just exactly who is handling such personal information? It's lost even before I leave the office? It's lost a total of three times? Not good. I wrote my pharmacy on the new patient forms. It's been entered incorrectly twice. I showed up to a Nuclear Stress Test after fasting and doing everything I was told to do to prepare, only to find out the office forgot they scheduled me. Thankfully, the contracted techs decided to take me anyway after someone else failed to show. The tests took well over 5 hours because I had to be fit into the schedule, despite the fact it took others less than 2.5 hours. As I was fasting, this wasn't tri

I've seen Dr. Woodhouse three times in the last 5 months. My health history is full of complications. I've had several cardiologists over the last 25 years. One told me that my heart disease is my fault because I was borderline obese. Another refused to believe that I'd had MIs, saying I didn't fit "the profile". I never imagined that I wold find a doctor who listened, researched my conditions and educated me. Dr W spent almost an hour with me, while taking copious notes, during my first visit. She has a plan for my heart health going forward. She encourages me to be healthy without shaming me. She is thorough, kind and highly intelligent, all in addition to being very professional and quite obviously at the top of her field. I feel safe and hopeful being in her care. For me, that has never happened with a cardiologist before. I can't recommend her enough even though she runs late sometimes. I'll happily sacrifice 30 minutes in her waiting room to be in her care.

This was my brother's first visit with Dr Woodhouse. He had anxiety seeing a new doc. He's hard of hearing & his batteries were dead in his hearing aid. Nonetheless, it was a fantastic visit. We're so glad we found a cardiologist who is kind, professional and has a great personality. We really appreciated her thoroughness in explaining where my brother is now and the path for treatment moving forward. We hope to keep this great start going!

As a referring physician, I have been thoroughly impressed with the thoroughness, breadth of knowledge, expertise and compassion Dr. Woodhouse has shared with my patients over the past 15 years. She was my "go-to" Cardiologist especially for my female patients and will be missed greatly in our clinical community. Our loss is definitely your gain. I will take the lessons taught to me by Dr. Woodhouse and apply them to my patients throughout the rest of my career. I definitely appreciate the passion she shared with me in unearthing hidden cardiac disease in female patients which can be frequently missed by traditional diagnostics.

I started seeing Dr. Woodhouse approx. 10 years ago. She was always very professional and honest with me. I always felt I was in the best of care with her. I was so disappointed when I learned she was moving to another state. She will be missed very much and I know that the community where she establishes her practice will appreciate her professional knowledge and human touch.

Dr. Woodhouse was my mother's doctor for years and took exceptional care of her. Great rapport with her patients. Easy to talk to and great bedside manors. We never felt rushed or confused- friendly and claiming. Over all GREAT doctor and human! Northside should have held on tight to her not many doctors here in Atlanta has her experience and passion for others health. It's going to be a challenge finding another doctor to replace her. We would like to wish her the best..She will soon be recognized as one of Maryland's best!

I was very disappointed in the service I received from this physician and her staff. After taking vital tests I was not notified for quite some time. Following a very unprofessional call, I had more questions and was given the run around. They misplaced my records, messed up a follow up appointment after waiting for it over a month. It was a very bad experience. What is also upsetting is Dr Woodhouse told me she would do a follow up procedure, and that was never scheduled. Nobody seemed to know what I was talking about. I should have known from the beginning waiting 50 minutes my first appointment. When I inquired how much longer it would be the reply was they thought I had been called!

My experiences with Dr Woodhouse have always been great. I’ve been going to her about 15 years. She goes the extra mile to test your condition to get to the bottom of your problem. Love her bedside manner.

Absolutely wonderful doctor. She hears you, answers questions, and is funny. My best recommendation is that I am a doctor and know how hard it is to juggle an office full of patients, phone calls, and paperwork that is endless. Patients also don't get to see her dealing with insurance companies to get approval on procedures that her patients really need. When you put your only child in the care of a doctor, as I have, nothing more needs to be said.

Not sure who posts all those great reviews about her, because she is really not that great! She rushed through appointment and ignored all my symptoms. I was never given any medications, but was told to come back in a 6 months. I felt like my condition was not serious enough for her to give me any attention or even listen to me. She may be better for post-op patients with multiple heart attacks and hospitalizations, but if you only have chest pain and tightness she will not help you. Stay away!
