I’ve never had a doctor as kind and patient as Dr. Hood. He listens to his patients concerns and gives you all options. I was so comfortable when I had to do my hysterectomy. I knew I was in good hands. His bed side manners are above and beyond! Thank you Dr. Hood!

Dr.Hood took very good care of me during my high risk pregnancy. He was very attentive and caring. I trusted his decisions and can thank him for catching a medical problem other doctors missed. The office staff is very nice and helpful and made me feel comfortable. The office is also very clean.

Dr. Hood was the most attentive, caring, and supportive OB. He encourages you and gives you advise that helps. Most importantly he listens to you. He delivered my daughter on 2/4/16 at night, he refused to go to bed before she was here. Thank you for all your help with everything. You have changed our world for the better. If I were still in FL my next child would be delivered by you.

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.

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.
