This was my first visit and they were absolutely phenomenal! The staff was so friendly. The physician assistant was also so friendly and very attentive. I had to bring my 3 year old with me and they were so great withhim. He accidentally bumped his chin on a chair and was hysterical. Both the doctor and assistant immediately stepped in trying to make him laugh and smile. I would recommend this office to anyone.

Staff was pleasant. Just surprised that the nurse was about to take my photo without first asking if I wanted my photo taken. Maybe I missed this in the intake forms. The way time was a little over a half hour.What's up with doctors not washing their hands especially during cold and flu season? The doctor was attentive to my needs and offered a service that I will probably take advantage of. Hopefully the wait time will not be as long for the follow up visit and the reason for my visit will be resolved with use of prescribed medicine. The doctor explained the pertinent information in detail.

First time visit. I was nervous and scared but Dr. Woods and his staff were extremely professional, helpful, and caring which really helped ease my anxiety. Everything was very well done, from patient intake to consulting with the doctor. Also,the timeliness of my visit was just about an hour total which is exceptional given the top quality care I received. Dr. Woods is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. He takes time to answer questions and offers thorough explanations. I wish there were more doctors like him! It also really helps that his office workers are organized and keep things running smoothly. They smile & are friendly which complements the overall professionalism of Dr. Woods' practice.

Dr Woods was very professional. He gave me options for scar treatment no other dermatologist offered. He also offered to help reduce the hideous scar on my stomach from a botched mole removal last year. He took the time to doa thorough skin inspection and had a very friendly and professional demeanor. There are a lot of really bad doctors out there. I'm glad I finally did my homework and found one of the good ones.

I appreciated his professionalism. Very nice office. Lots of good "skin things" to look at prior to getting into the exam room. The exam room was quite well lit as would be good for a derm exam. He had his assistantin the room which I know is smart.. I will go back to see this MD if there is a derm need. I would recommend him, also.
