Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hood "As an ophthalmologist with specialty training in cornea, cataract, and refractive surgery, my treatment philosophy is partnered care with my patients. The importance of vision in a person's life can't be overstated, and I take it as a great responsibility when patients trust me with their eye care. I want my patients to understand their eye disease or condition, and to leave the office with all of their questions answered."
