I have always had a good experience with Dr. Woodard. Excellent doctor/surgeon.

Reviewed on Aug 7, 2020

Dr. Woodard is an amazing doctor that shows respect, kindness, and compassion. He actively listens and demonstrates his knowledge in a manner that is understanding and applicable. I have recommended Dr. Woodard to all my friends with serious sinus issues, etc. He has improved my quality of life just by the mere fact that I can smell again in some capacity! Losing the sense of smell was devastating for me and within months of seeing Dr. Woodard, I started smelling again. I will never stop seeing him since I can count on Dr. Woodard to always do the right thing! Thank You!

Dr. Woodard is just awesome!

Reviewed on Jun 18, 2020

This appointment was made well in advance as a post-operative follow-up. What I have a problem with is making an appointment with a provider and it's months down the road. Or what really I find troublesome is the clinic cancelling an appointment and re-scheduling months later instead of a week or two later.

Dr. Woodard didn't even listen to my symptoms. He only looked at a CT scan from months ago. Looked in my nose for a few seconds, only went by what the nurse assistant recommended. I traveled 8 hours round trip to be diagnosed by a nurse. How sad. I've dealt with this sinus issue for 10 months. . Was so hoping the Cleveland Clinic could help me. So very sad. I'll not being coming back to this doctor ever again.
