I was seen by a PA (learning I am guessing) this does not reflect against Dr. Woodard who is a great physician and I trust him totally with his decisions and thought processes. Dr. Woodard always shows respect, concern and caring each year that I am seen by him. I have full confidence that he has my best interest in mind towards my health and well being.

Very helpful and understanding. There was a mix up with my appointment. The doctor I was scheduled with was changed on the Monday that week. Everyone was confused, the ENTIRE team did anything and everything they could to help me that day and with a future visit. Dr. Woodard even did an exam, even though it wasn't his specialty. AMAZING team!!

The doctor shook his legs a lot. I'm not sure if he was in a hurry , or a nervous habit

Reviewed on Jun 8, 2022

Dr. Woodard is a great doctor. I just didn't realize he was not an ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor), but that he was only the "N" part - Nose and Sinuses. I am having problems with both ears, especially my left one (muffled hearing and pain). Dr. Woodard was kind enough to let me know that the disease I have, Sarcoidosis, does attack my eustachian tubes, which I did not know and that I would need to see an Ear Specialist. When I left that day, I was under the impression that his assistant was going to set me up with an Ear Specialist, but I have not heard anything from Cleveland Clinic and still having ear issues.
