Dr. Roderic L Woodson II has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Dr. Woodson treats my entire family for a genetic kidney disorder. He has taken excellent care of all of us. Dr. Woodson is one of the most thorough and professional doctors I have ever had. He is always current and up-to-date on the latest medical practices and knowledge. He has excellent bedside manners and genuinely cares about his patients. Granted that the wait time is not always perfect but I am confident that he is giving other patients the same expert care that he gives to me and my family.
Dr Woodson is a wonderful young intelligent up to date on the latest medical information and had saved my father life!!!!! My father old primary care doctor had him on multiple medications that Led him into kidney failure but when we went to dr Woodson he help my father with a wonderful Health plan to get his kidney back up to normal range and my father is not on all of his 10 medications that his old primary care had him on any more!!!! Yes he can be alittle behind on time but what doctor isn't I feel that the time I waited on him to see my father was all worth waiting on!!! He is a specialist so I understand at times it is hard to get up an appointment, but the young lady at the front is so nice and kind and will try her hardest to get you in as soon as there are cancellations. I believe Dr. Woodson also has dialysis units that he works out of and also works out of Piedmont Hospital so he is very busy but all that being said once he is in the room with you he will answer all your questions and concerns and make you feel like you are the only patient he has. Thank you dr. Woodson and George renal staff.
I can't say enough about how Dr. Woodson has taken such good care of me, he basically saved my life. When I first came to him I was in a very bad position medically and through time and his treatment plan I am almost back to normal. I cannot thank him and his wonderful staff enough. He genuinely cares about his patients and his time and effort shows.
