Dr. Woodson is innovative in his proposed treatments, listens attentively helping one to believe he really cares and is sensitive to my husband's Alzheimer's condition. We are extremely appreciative.

Dr. Woodson is the absolute best for my OSA sleep apnea . He's a great listener and a sharp professional at what he does. I can't imagine going to anywhere else! He is a great guy. And his supporting staff is wonderful! Always so very helpful.

very personable. I liked the detail which his physician resident was able to discuss my health records.
Aug. 30, 2019
The doctor was very professional and patient listening and kind individual he spent the time he heard your concerns he gave rational answers not overpromising and not under selling but realistic - he knew my background and he was ready with advice that he could intercede on my behalf with - friendly!

were treated with respect and genuine concern for health. answered my questions in plain English that my wife and myself could understand.
July 29, 2019
doctor was 1 hour and 15 minutes late. spent about 5 minutes with me and did not let me talk despite me waiting months to see him. he rattled off some suggestions along with some things I did not understand. it was really disappointing appointment and a waste of time when I could have been at work. I've had a lot of doctors appts in my life already and this one rates pretty low on the scale as it had all the hallmarks of a provider who was checked out and did not respect his patient.
July 23, 2019
When the door to the exam room opened, a physician assistant came in and did the initial visit -- not Dr. Woodson. That's fine, but it would have been good if I had been told beforehand that that was going to happen.
July 17, 2019
nurse and doc were great. receptionist was polite but clueless. handed me a firm to,fill out that nothing to do with my visit. she just assumed

Upfront about the the state of medical understanding of the condition. Put issues in perspective
June 27, 2019
Long wait time before being seen. This was for a NEW 3 year prescription for my CPAP machine. The office did not downlaod the information from my CPAP use for the past 3 years. There was no way to know how well I am doing with the CPAP or how it is working except how I am feeling/sleeping.
June 13, 2019
I expressed concern about not feeling like I can breathe as well as I should be able to, through my nose, but both the NP and doctor seemed to have diagnosed my condition before really talking about the symptoms. They were more than a half hour behind schedule and at the end of the day. Not sure what to think about this experience.
May 25, 2019
Everyone was very knowledgeable about the service that was being performed.
May 22, 2019

Doctor loves his work. Nurse provided much information.
April 29, 2019
He took the time to explain what was the problem and how to fix it. Haven't had such a great doctor in a long time. Very impressed with him.
April 25, 2019
Doctor was very professional and easy to communicate with.
April 23, 2019
The first person that came in for the appointment was a PA or intern(not sure which) with a heavy accent. This person was difficult to understand. Conducted the initial screening asking a question to get up to speed on my condition. My referral was to discuss the inspire sleep device and whether or not I was a candidate. Eventually the doctor came in and picked up the appointment conversation topic. There was more than an hour wait berore I was taken back for the appointment.
April 3, 2019
The entire team was excellent. They planned for my visit in advance by obtaining my tests/records. I received a very thorough evaluation. The doctor took a lot of time with me. Everything was explained in an easy to understand manner. They were all kind and respectful.

*Dr. Woodson could do a better job of explaining what he is going to do.
March 25, 2019
Top notch Doc
March 12, 2019
I was called in then sent back out because it was discovered there was someone in the waiting room with an appointment before mine. This happened 10 minutes after my appointment time which was one of the first ones in the morning (8:30). I was next called back at 9:00, a half hour past my appointment time. Another doctor came in and asked a bunch of questions a few minutes later. I finally saw Dr Woodson an hour and ten minutes after my appointment. This is unacceptable. Had I shown up that late I'm sure I would not have been seen.

Knowledgeable helped in ways others didn't.

I'v had him do surgeries before and he has two exceptional qualities: expertise and sincere concern
