I knew Dr. John as a resident at VA hospital and later worked with him at Bergan GI clinic. He was a very smart doctor and a lot of fun to work with and always had stories to tell. He cared for his patients and also respected all people he worked with. He will be missed by many . My prayers and sympathy go out to the family. May you feel God's love and arms around you at this time

Dr John was the BEST doctor I ever saw. He was kind caring, funny and told you like it was. I missed him when he retired, and I will always remember him as the best GI GUY in Omaha.

I worked with Dr. Woodbury in the GI lab at Bergan Mercy many years ago. I always had the utmost respect for him as a physician. He was one of the kindest and caring doctors I have ever known not to mention the smartest! He also made us laugh with all his stories. May God comfort your family as you carry on without this amazing man. Rest in eternal peace Dr Woodbury.

Dr Woodbury took excellent care of me in the mid 80s when I was hospitalized with a serious illness. He was kind, compassionate & took time to talk with me about my illness. I fully recovered thanks to his guidance. May God comfort his family in their time of grief knowing he touched many lives in a positive way.

I am so sorry for your great loss. Dr. Woodbury was an amazing doctor. He truly saved my life In the mid 80´s, after 4 years of being sick and no answers from the numerous doctors that I went to. Dr. Woodbury knew what was wrong almost immediately. I continued as a patient until his retirement. I appreciate his help and the sacrifices his family no doubt endured while he was taking care of others. Thank you.
