You know I think it was really bad that Dr, Lee at the vision center took the vision center away from Dr. Woolverton. Sure he had some bad luck being embezzled going through a divorce where his X really drained him but his father which was an old man at the time worked hard and his brother-in-law on that building for him and if the optometrist really cared for him when he almost died in 2007 and had no medical insurance (and this also hurt him very bad financially) they could have all chiped in and helped him out. This was very stressful on him. Not one eye doctor (and believe me some had so much money they would have never missed it) came to his rescue. They could have had benefits for him and everything. Some could have pitched in and worked for him for free on their days off instead of him having to hire help to keep it open. I see his friends actually let him down and that really bothers me. Dr. Nicholouson now the owner only wanted to get the practice. That really hurt him. I dont know of any one that came forward and made a donation for him and that is sad. There was a donation jar in his office and no one put donations in it as many people that he helped. He let way to many people charge as most doctors do not and then the people would not pay but he wanted them to see and tried to help them. He gave numerous discounts to people and actually gave some people glasses. He always honored the lions club and although they do help get people glasses the doctor has to contribute a lot of the money. He will always be remembered for his kindness and help but it is a shame that people never tried to help him. I just wonder if anyone ever told him they even appreciated him. I hope everyday that people enter thoes doors of the office be it employees, former patients, doctors, friends, new patients or former employees they remember they never tried to help a person that was in the hospital in 2007 and was going under and really needed some help. God help us when we want to prosper off of someone elses hard work. I personally will go somewhere else for my eye care. I too was a former patient of Dr. Woolverton

You may not have had the tumor that long. They can come up all at once and some grow quickly. Why didnt you go to another doctor if you had trouble that long? All your life???? If I dont get satisfaction with a doctor or any answers I gko someplace else. Maybe and I dont know but maybe it was because you could charge there or maybe its because he was one of the few eye doctors at that time that took tenn care. All I know is he was one of the very best eye doctors I have known he graduated as one of the top in his class he knew his stuff although no one is perfect not even you or me. He is one of the few doctors that would go in after hours and he is the one that actually found my tumor. So I am very grateful to him for that I had been going to doctors and they couldnt find my problem. If you could have sued and won and didnt then why are you bringing it up now when he is dead? He did so much good for so many people I really dont think any of the things you mentioned happened to him by God for you. He really didnt need that restaurant in the first place nor did he need his wife she begged him to marry her for about 18 years before he married her in the first place. They were married for eight and have been divorced since 2004. He was a great doctor, singer, and musician. Now I will gaurantee you that thoes doctors wouldnt testify in court against him and to win you would have to have had an expert witness. Who are the doctors that told you that? If they really went that far as to say that against another doctor why dont you tell us there names?

Why would you go to him your whole life and then bad mouth him when he dies? You could have sought a second opinion if you didnt feel he was getting to the bottom of the problem. Well are you going to tell the doctors names that told you that?

Does anyone have anything to say about this? I really think it was terrible that no one helped him when he needed it and that the doctor there was just waiting for him to go under so he could cash in on his bad luck, but every body has their day and what comes around goes around.

The doctors would never say anything against him so you would have a hard time proving it in court. Is your tumor a pitutary tumor? If it is they can remove it and you will probably regain your vision thats what they told me. No like I said I feel very highly of him because he found my tumor and they didnt want to operate on me because it was too close to the optic nerve so they shrunk it with medicine and if one day I wake up blind they said they could remove it then and I would see again. However I have been fortunate that every time my tumor gets bigger and effects my vision or I get headaches they put me back on the medicine and it shrinks again. Dont know how long this will stay like this but for now it is working and I am thankful and also thankful Dr. Woolverton found my problem for me. I nor you do not know why yours wasnt found but if I still have trouble after seeing a doctor or am not satisfied with his answer I go somewhere else til I am satisfied. Doctors are only human they are not God. Havent you ever heard doctors tell someone they only have so long to live and they live longer? Thats because they are not God and they do not know. The careing person he was I am very sure he would not have done this intensionaly. Like I said he helped many many people. And the so called friends he had let him down by not helping when he needed them when he was sick and just waited for him to sink so they could get his office and the business he worked so hard to build. I will never go in that office again. I personally dont know how anyone could do this to one of their own optometrists but what goes around comes around. And even tho he will not be here to see it Karma is bad. I am truly sorry for your loss but no one knows how it would have turned out if treated differently only God knows that. And I have a lot of questions why but I was always taught that every thing happens for a reason. See if maybe they can remove your tumor.

Your post says all your life he said it was lazy eye (so I thought you meant all your life) and then when you were older you said he wanted to talk about his restaurant so you are the one that said all your life. From reading this it sounded like you went to him for several years. Your parents should have taken you some where else. But no doctor in the world can tell you if he had sent you to a specialist this would not have happened they do not know this. Youo see sometimes specialist miss things too.

well......they had a couple of heated arguments at the office before their divorce. Heard thats why he never let her work there and she was too good (or thought she was) to work anywhere else. He was a good man and worked very hard. He always wanted children but she didnt. So sad. Even when he was divorced and got sick she made him pay her bills. No compassion. Just wanted to get what she could from him.

Well Doctors arent God and no one is perfect but God. If you had anythiing to say about it you should have talked to him when he was living not talk bad about a man when he is dead and cannot defend himself. I fail to believe it was his fault for one lhe loved his patients and did a good job and wouldnt have wanted that to happen for anything in the world. And 2 you would have probably sued him the way you feel and the things you say about him and him dead. And 3 I know we would have heard of this long long ago before the man passed away if you could have proved it. This was never done to you intensionally and you should have gone on your own somewhere else if you felt he wasnt doing his job or you still had problems. No oone or nothing could have made you not seek help somewhere else. Now God needs to have mercy on you for talking bad about a man that has passed away and cannot speak in his own defense. You actually are slandering him and his family could probably do something about that.

Do you have facts on that?? And apparently you didnt know that his wife at the time was the owner of that business. So you are trying to act like maybe it was him??? Maybe you should get youor facts straight and if you do have something come forward it isnt too late.

Let the poor man be he was a very good person. I went to him several years and if I had a problem like she says she does I would have gotten a second opinion. He went out of his way to help me enough said!

I always heard that a disgruntled employee was behind the fire...I don't think he personally had anything to do with it burning. Doc was a good man, but like a lot of us, fell victim to our vices. RIP.
I believe his ex-wife was manager or co=manager and maybe she had something to do with it if they wanted to get rid of it. Doc wouldnt do that. Just saying....... JMO

Gold digger!!!! She came from a very low society and was really poor but she really wanted to strut it when she could say she was a doctors wife. Most women when they get a divorce and have no children want their maiden name back but NO she wants to use that name. I am telling you it will all come out. Some people may be surprised but some wont. He let his girlfriend work there after he divorced her but he would never let her work there. And God forbid she didnt want to work. Well even when he was divorced from her and of curse after he got to quit paying her and everything for her he had a girlfriend and she still wanted to live with him so she wouldnt have to work. How disgusting!!1 Of course in a seperate bedroom which tells you she didnt care about him or want him back.

Dr. Woolverton was one of my customers. I worked in the insurance industry. He was always so kind and remembered me from one encounter to the next. Last time I saw him was at Walmart in Martin. I had no idea he had passed til I saw this post.
Someone asked if anyone knew the autopsy results. You answered yes but I don't see a posting giving the info. Was it shared?

No I am sorry it cant be shared at this time. I will tell you it was not natural causes and it is a shame he loved life to the fullest. He didnt want to die. He always said if he was dead I would know he didnt do it. He also would tell people that slept alot that they could sleep when they were dead. I have a lot of good memories of him. But this just breaks my heart. He was kind and very good hearted. He would give people glasses that needed them. He passed away January 4th 2012. Did you do insurance claims for his patients or his own personal insurance. If it was his insurance I am sure you would have known tho.
