Patient Comments

Dr Woods always listens very carefully to what I have to say and tailors his advice based on the way we have talked before. He remembers issues that have happened with treatments and takes those into account when we discuss changes. He asks for my opinion on his suggestions and always lets me know I should follow up with any questions or problems rather than waiting for our next appointment if things aren't going as well as hoped. He also speaks kindly and with compassion and understanding for impact on quality of life. Further, he enquirer about serious health issues he knows have been occurring in my family, which makes me feel like he is treating me as a whole person.

Most amazing experience I have ever had with a physician. He asked me if he could be part of my team. He let me know he could help me with my symptoms. He took time with me and made me feel like a person. The visit literally brought me to tears. I have been a nurse for almost 25 years and never felt the compassion I felt working with Dr. Woods. He is the best kept secret at the UofR. I am saddened to think that when he retires, there may not be another MD who wants to work with women who suffer from menopause.

Dr. Woods is one of the best doctors I've seen for listening, explaining, and working together with me to find the right solution. He takes all concerns seriously and knows and remembers my medical info. I truly wish I had more doctors who wereThis understanding and willing to make things a partnership in finding answers to complex situations as my other chronic illnesses often cause things to be not textbook' and Dr Woods is good at avoiding a cookie cutter approach and takes time to learn individual symptoms.
