Robert Woodruff MD
Back, Neck, & Spine
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Woodruff.
“I have had a number of contacts with BHOSC over the years. The Doctors have all been highly skilled, helpful and professional. The surgeries I have had by the Doctors there have been very successful. I recently saw Dr. Woodruff for back issues and he was very thorough and made appropriate recommendations.”
– Linda V.
“He checked my walk, my back, and asked questions and explained what he thought was going on. He compared x rays with prior x rays to describe the progression of my problem and the best way he thought to ease my pain. Also suggested I call him back in a month to let him know how I am doing with PT and then make farther evaluations. Baby steps to being pain-free instead of heading for the knife.”
– Annie M.
“So far, all have been positive.”
– James S.
“I always have a great experience with Dr. Woodruff. He is very thorough, caring, and explains things, so it is easily understood.”

“Dr. Woodruff is a very caring person who takes time to listen and is genuinely interested in you.”

“Dr. Woodruff read my medical history, read my x-rays and my MRI, and had already found an issue not seen before. I was utterly pleased with my appointment and felt we might be on the right track. Thank you.”
– Len H.
“Dr. Woodruff does an excellent job of explaining your diagnosis and answering all of your questions. He also shares all options available to treat you properly. He is a great listener and helped create a plan to decrease my pain. I couldn’t be happier with my results.”
– Rachelle G.
“No surgery yet, but in the future.”
– Paul D.
“Many doctors seem "too busy" to communicate with their patients, but Dr. Woodruff impresses me with his availability. I had complications the first night after my back surgery and was very frustrated with the inadequate response of the on-call doctor. It was a huge relief to speak with Dr. Woodruff when he called me at home the next morning - not his nurse or his tech - him. This is the mark of a good doctor in my opinion.”
– Anna S.
“Dr. Woodruff is an extremely caring individual. He spends as much time as you want to answer questions and explaining procedures. He checked in on me every day that I was in the hospital, making sure I was well taken care of and comfortable. His skill level is second to none, and I would not hesitate for a minute to use him again.”

“Excellent service from all staff. PA Mitch was super. I had good exams, good explanations. All took the time to listen when my pain levels were tough and tears flowed. Dr. Woodruff went beyond to explain my situation so well. He was very caring and understood my pain. He did not give up and he continued to try to gain control of my pain. Such a excellent follow through . I would recommend him to everyone.”
– Vicki H.
“They got me in on a cancellation basis and then I got in at a late hour and everyone was great from admissions to nursing to the physician.”

“Friendly, very knowledgeable and up to date with technology. Very thorough with exam and diagnosis with several treatment options. My wife and I have seen or been treated by more than six other doctors at this facility over the last ten plus years. What an asset to our community.”
– Ted B.
“Dr. Woodruff is very knowledge and willing to help.”
– James H.
“I was very impressed with Dr. Woodruff and his staff. Before my spinal fusion surgery, Dr. Woodruff explained the procedure in detail and answered all my questions, any of the silly ones. He gave me a complete information packet that was very useful too. After surgery, he was the same and his nurses were quick to return my phone calls in less than 24 hours later. I am now living a pain free life for the first time in over 10 years, and now wish I’d have the surgery sooner! I would recommend Dr. Woodruff to anyone who needs his surgical skills and expertise.”
– Rowena B.
“Very good and excellent care. Professional and friendly staff. I had very bad nerve pain and the surgery corrected this, so I now can live a normal life again. Could not ask for any better. Thank you to Dr. Woodruff.”
– Mary S.
“Dr. Woodruff and the surgical staff were amazing. He answered all of my questions and I have no pain in my arms and shoulders for the first time in three years.”
– Kerri S.
“I have had some bad experiences with providers in the past regarding similar things that Dr. Woodruff helped me with. I went in a little afraid that I would just be pushed aside like so many other doctors had. These fears were unfounded with Dr. Woodruff. He was extremely kind and caring and really listened to what my pain was doing and he was able to explain why I was having this pain and then created a plan of attack to decrease and eliminate it. He was an incredible doctor and I would recommend him to anyone.”
– Samantha A.
“I was very happy with his explanation of my diagnosis and he answered all of my questions. Something that so many other Dr.'s do not take the time to do. What I had been led to believe was very severe was surprisingly not.”
