Stephen W. Woodson, D.O.
His mother called it hopeless. His cursive handwriting, that is. After a few hours of struggling with the fourth grader, she relinquished, “You write so terribly you might as well become a doctor.” So, here he is today, Stephen W. Woodson, a doctor of osteopathic medicine. And yes, his handwriting is still indecipherable.
Doc grew up in Tulsa graduating from Memorial High School in 1972. He went to Baylor University graduating in 1976 and then received his medical degree from the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery in 1980. He visited the small town of Stigler and decided it was the place to begin his family practice. 36 years later, it is still the place for him.
He became a Christian while in high school and is active at the First Baptist Church where he teaches an adult Sunday School class and enjoys getting together with the Band of Brothers to study scripture and eat!
He shares his medical skills on mission trips to Haiti, Brazil and Malawi. For six years, he has excavated with an archeological team in Israel. In Stigler, he is very involved with community improvements and even becomes an “actor” when his stage antics are needed!
Doc is a father of four, has one daughter-in-law and is the grandfather of three. He is married to Mitzi Ramsey Woodson and they enjoy volunteering, running, hiking, cycling, scuba diving, snow skiing, 4-wheeling, boating, photography and enjoying family! Most recently, he began tinkering with a 1971 MG Midget!
A few of Doc’s notable achievements include:
- OSU professor (currently awarded the Rural Medicine Endowed Chair)
- Meaningful Use Level two
- Chief of Staff, Haskell County Community Hospital
- Member, Oklahoma Osteopathic Association
- Chairman of the Haskell County Health Department Board
- Volunteer of the Year, Stigler Chamber of Commerce, 2009
- eMDs electronic medical records since 2007
He is certified through the:
- American Board of Osteopathic Family Practitioners
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
Brandie Goodman, Receptionist
Born just across the state line in Fort Smith, Brandie grew up in Stigler and graduated from Stigler High School in 1993. She married her high school sweetheart, Aaron, and they moved to Fort Worth where she graduated from Tarrant County College with an associate degree in Applied Science. They have two children – son, Isaac, and daughter, Emma.
They moved back to Stigler in December 2004. She joined Woodson Family Medical Clinic in 2008 as a receptionist. “I’m best known in the office for my outstanding cooking skills…just ask Doc about me,” teases Brandie whose most frequently used cooking utensil is the can opener!
Her favorite things include watching HGTV, dancing, and attending football, basketball and baseball games. But, above all else, she enjoys spending time with her family.
Carla Roberts, LPN
21 years! That is how long Carla has been with Woodson Family Medical Clinic. To say patients “know and love her” is an understatement. She is the Head Nurse and diabetic coach.
Carla completed the Nursing Program at Kiamichi Vo-Tech in McAlester in 1988. She is “blessed” to be the mom of two, has one daughter in law, and is “Nan” to three grandsons and one granddaughter.
“I am thankful that outside of work, I spend my free time singing Southern Gospel music as part of a duet with my brother in multiple churches and other venues,” she says.
Melissa Bryant, LPN
Melissa graduated the LPN Program in 2005 at the Kiamichi Technology Center in Stigler. That same year, she came to work at Woodson Family Medical Clinic. “According to Doc, I’m still on probation and may never get off probation!” says Melissa of the 12 years running joke.
Melissa is a mother to a daughter and a son. She has two step daughters and a step son. She and her husband have “two beautiful granddaughters and a handsome grandson.” They love to camp, fish and spend time with family.
“I love serving God and doing whatever God needs me to do. I am blessed to serve Him and others in whatever capacity He leads.”
Mitzi Woodson, Office Manager
Mitzi became Mrs. Woodson after getting reacquainted with Doc at Baylor University’s 35th-year class reunion. She was living in Alabama so after a long-distance courtship, they married in 2007. Mitzi has four sons, two daughters-in-law and two grandchildren. She is very involved in her church, missions and community.
She became the office manager and is primarily responsible for payroll, accounts payable and taxes. She also manages the website and conducts marketing.
“I’m so thankful for Steve and these ladies. It’s such a fun place to work and to know we are helping people make better health choices and meeting their medical needs,” says Mitzi.
Shannon McAdoo, LPN
Shannon became a member of the Woodson Family Medical Clinic family in December of 2010. “It has been one of the best choices I have made for my nursing career and my family life.” In those seven years, Shannon has married and has begun a family of her own.
“As the mother of two young boys, I can’t express how blessed I feel to work in such a family oriented environment. I try to honor God through nursing and caring for others. I love working in a place where my Christian faith is embraced and encouraged by those around me.”
Sharon Spradlin, Insurance Manager
As the clinic’s insurance manager, Sharon has seen a lot of changes and amassed a world of knowledge in the 22 years she has worked for Doc. “I have worked for Dr. Woodson since 1995. That makes me the oldest in the office – Yay…,” jokes Sharon.
She has one daughter and one granddaughter. “I enjoy spending Saturdays on the soccer field watching my granddaughter play.”
