Ratings for Dr. Melinda J. Woofter
It has been said that the Dr. Has a horrible bedside manner unless has insurance ( not disability or government). very high turn around on staff. It seems that she treats her staff like they are beneath her. Very knowledgeable in the field of dermatology.
Excellent Dermatologist! Treats her patience with respect and kindness, as well as treating your condition. I wouldn't go to any other dermatologist. Everyone in her office is very caring and treats you with extreme kindness. Wish I could find a Family Doctor as good as her and her staff.
After mentioning a male pattern hair growth to my family doctor, and seeing my family doctor over and over again for yeast and bacteria infections, and having walking pneumonia three times in two years, I went to see Dr. Woofter to at least address the hair growth issue. After bloodwork, and Dr. Woofter's attention to detail, I have now been diagnosed with Hashimoto's, PCOS, and I have four nodules on my thyroid gland, which have been biopsied once, and are about to be biopsied once again to check for cancer cells. My Vitamin D levels were basically nothing. My immune system was at rock bottom. Because of Dr. Woofter I am now on my way to an entire new healthy life. I have lost over 30lbs in the last 8 months, and have changed my entire eating and exercising lifestyle. Dr. Woofter took the time to change my life, and most likely extended my life too.
I am a current patient who recently made an appointment for my daughter with Dr. Woofter. Dr. Woofter was really wonderful with my daughter. She diagnosed a "rare" minor skin condition that was previously not diagnosed accurately. I am very impressed by Dr. Woofter's knowledge base and careful examination. I appreciated that she explained the diagnosis to us thoroughly and responded to our questions with care and kindness.
Horrible, horrible experience. It would seem Dr. Woofter is more interested in making the almighty dollar than actually treating and helping her patients. And her staff is awful - rude, incompetent. It was just a terrible experience, I will not be returning.
