Ratings for Dr. C. STEPHEN Woolums
Dr Woolums performed cyroblation on my kidney, in Corbin, ky. Cancer returned, had kidney removed and now have stage 4 renal cell carcinoma . He also performed prostate surgery on my husband who passed away 10 days after the surgery. Biggest mistake of our lives.
The staff was very polite and got my son in quickly to see the doctor. However, I was already worried when I heard the doctor yelling at someone in the next room. When he finally came into my son's room he seemed in a good mood. That quickly changed when I asked questions about my son's stone. He became very rude and hostile. He kept pushing surgery after my son was diagnosed with a very small stone only two days before. When I asked about other options he got frustrated and said he hates people that look stuff up on the internet. From there, the entire conversation went down hill. He became very condescending and treated me very disrespectful, all the while pushing for surgery. Never in my entire life have I experienced such a rude doctor. It also seems he does not have a firm grasp on anatomy. I will not subject my son to such behavior ever again.
Worst Dr I have ever been to. Was referred by the emergency dept, made an appt, went to see him and he was extremely rude and acted like he was in a rush. It has been 2 weeks since I've seen him and I have still not received a call to schedule the procedure to have my kidney stone broke up. I have called several times and left several message and have yet to receive a call back. He is a pompous jerk and his staff has a bad habit of lying. Last week when I called to see about scheduling my procedure they told me the lady who does the scheduling was out of the office every time I called. When I called this week I was told she wasn't there this week but she was there last week. The kidney stone has caused me severe pain and vomiting and I can't even get someone to call me back.
Dr Woolum is very rude, rude, unrofessional and gets very hostile towards if you dare question him about whats affecting your body. I suggest go some where else.
Dr. Woolum was very insensitive to my concerns about what he would be doing to me in the exam. He was rude, cut me off when I tried to answer his questions when I thought I was giving him the info he needed. He was very abrasive, uncaring and his staff were rude when I told them how he affected me and asked to see his partner, claiming, "He's always sensitive to his patients" without even being in the room when he was rude to me, so I will not be seeing him again.
My late husband and I have both been patients of Dr. Woolums for years. You will not find another one like him. He is very honest and professionally with a wonderful bedside manner. If you have trouble understanding, don't worry he will draw you a picture. His skills are excellent! Dr. Woolums cares about his patients. He used to be a physician in Kentucky, but moved to West Virginia. The State is very blessed to have such a wonderful physician.
