Always able to see Mr Woodland quite easily. He will always fit you in if he can. Great manner and explains everything so I can understand. Also has the best Secretary Sahar.
Explained everything very clearly - very reassuring
I felt very reassured and relaxed as I could be under Dr Woodland's care.
Dr Woodland is very user friendly. He put me at ease, quickly got to the bottom of my symptons, but carried out necessary tests that provided reassurance. I would highly recommend Dr Woodland for anyone with any kind of digestive or bowl issue.
Best of doctor of all time, hands down to this man over there
My experience with Dr Woodland was excellent. He was very reassuring and clear in explaining my likely diagnosis and the steps we would undergo to reach a conclusion.
Great consultation, very happy with the outcome. However still waiting for the emails I was promised this Thursday gone, left a voicemail but no one got back in touch. Please sort this, otherwise was a great appointment and would be back if needed another one. Worth the money

Very professional but kind consultant. Thorough and took my symptoms seriously. Highly recommend to friend and family
Dr Woodland was clear in explaining procedure, very low risks involved and anaesthetic options available. Procedure itself was uncomfortable, but quick and efficient. Follow-up and prognosis were clear and easily understood. Altogether very good.
Open to listen about the symtoms and a clear explanation was provided on how to procedure to find out more about my current situation

Dr Ahmed Albusoda
I have shared patients with Philip in the areas of reflux and swallowing problems. Philip is an extremely bright and engaging consultant with a stellar training behind him. The patients I have referred to him tell me they really loved the way he made them feel relaxed, listened carefully to their needs and explained everything in ways they can understand. He has helped me resolve some quite complex problems and I will regularly refer to him in future. Outstanding.
