Dr. Woods recently removed my gallbladder. I only waited about 2 weeks from the time I was referred until surgery. Surgery went very well, no complications, I'm going back to work one week after surgery. Dr. Woods is very personable and was good to explain the surgery process to me. I have no complaints whatsoever!
