      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Hood's Care Philosophy

      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.
