After taking out my gall bladder, I told him I was still in pain every day and nauseous and throwing up every time I ate. He said, and I quote, "I can tell by your affect that you're not really in distress, so I'll give you some anti-nausea medication and you can go back to work in two weeks". He called me a liar. 9 days later, I was almost dead. I had a bleeding ulcer. By the time the ambulance got there, I had less than half the normal blood volume, 5.7 of 12, and a BP of 60/40.

Dr. Woodyard has a terrible bedside manner. His attitude is very poor. He is rude, dismissive, and not at all interested in talking with a patient and answering questions. I would NOT recommend Dr. Woodyard if you are expecting a doctor who cares about his patients. This doctor does not care.

I was referred to doctor woodyard for a surgical consultation for a hernia. He told me that I didn't have a hernia. He said he didn't know why I was having abdominal pain. But it was not a hernia. But just to be safe he would send me for a CT scan. He told me to go back to work (without restrictions). Two weeks later his office calls back to say the CT scan did show a hernia. He was rude, dismissive, and unprofessional. When I expressed this to his staff they told me to find another doctor.
