Miami, FL |
After 2 miscarriges Dr Hood ordered blood work but put the codes in wrong. I ended up with a $700 bill they refused to change the codes to help. He suggested genetic testing. My perinatal told me it should have been chromosomal, $350 bill. He denied me a drug many docs routinely give women in my situation for the 1st trimester as a precausion. PA was VERY rude and yelled at me. My friends whos pregnancies he treated left too for similar reasons. Now having fertility issues feel care is lacking.

Dr Hood has the best bed side manners. He is very knowlegeable, caring and thorough. He has been my OBGYN for the past eleven years, with exceptional service. He performed my surgery with no side effects. He always answer patients emergency calls even on weekends. i have been travelling to Florida each year for follow up and his gentle care. The staff is extemely nice.

Dr. Hood is very professional and knowledgeable. I used the health grades website to find him and can't say how satisfied I am with the visit that I had with him. The office space is nicely appointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Awesome & caring. Takes the time to listen, office staff very helpful!

My first visit was my last. I needed a new gyno after moving back to S.FL. He was short and impatient. After I told him I was not experiencing any symptoms, he said why did you even come here? That question along with his attitude made me feel as I had wasted his time. I had had irregular pap smears in the past (a fact I disclosed) and needed to have regular checkups. Seeing a gynecologist is hard enough and having to deal with an unprofessional one makes it worse.
