Most excellent. He thinks outside the box and takes the time to listen to you and really explain things. I'm not even his patient and he spent more time reviewing my case than the 1/2 dozen doctors who did "treat" me. Not many like him in the medical field anymore. Wish there were.

The staff and Dr. Hood made me feel so relaxed which helped my anxiety levels. I had stayed up the night before my procedure watching horrible YouTube videos of the ingrown toenail removal process. I was sure that it was going to be one of the worst pains ever but due to my surprise, Dr. Hood was fast, efficient, and NO PAIN!!!! I have to return in a couple of weeks to get my other toenail done. But I am very grateful and thankful for him and his staff.

I took my 86 year old mom to see Dr. Hood for a bad sore on her hammer toe. He diagnosed it as a ganglia cyst, cleaned it up and prescribed antibiotics. He was very sweet & patient with her. She was not very prompt because of different health issues but he was flexible and polite. He did a wonderful job.

I found Dr Hood researching ankle injuries and nerve pain. I was really at a loss over what had happened to my ankle after a recent fall. Having been to 2 other Dr’s, I wasn’t expecting much help. From the appointment scheduling, check in and then the office visit, I was so happy. I found Dr Hood to be very attentive, listened to what was happening and provided me with an understanding of what was going on and what I should do and expect going forward. Great Dr!

Dr. Hood is an exceptional medical professional. Most impressive is the care he takes in explaining what is going on and what he recommends to resolve the situation. Great bedside manner. He is also supported by Brandon and Kristen, incredible staff members. If you are looking for a podiatrist, look no further. You will receive excellent treatment from the time you walk in until you leave!

Excellent care upon entering office, Brandon was so nice yet professional, Dr. HOOD discussed my medical conditions and what was wrong with me, He also looked at my medical history connected to my condition. This senior has found a young doctor with the care and concerns beyond his age. I will refer him in the utmost respect. Thank you so very much!!??

I've been a patient of Dr. Hood's for the past few months. He is a miracle worker as far as I'm concerned. He addressed and diagnosed my problem quickly and we came up with a treatment plan together that best fit my schedule, which I really appreciated. His diagnosis was spot on and luckily I healed just as he suspected I would. The staff in the office were so nice, curtious and very personable. I'll be recommending Dr. Hood to everyone I know that needs a good podiatrist.

My experience with Dr. Hood has been awesome, easy to talk with, attentive, and best of all my issue was resolved correctly after 2 other's were not able to help me. I would definitely recommend. Brandon is easy to work with at the desk and also goes above and beyond to help.

Dr. Hood was very personable and caring. He would call with an answer to any questions I had. He treated me like I was a member of his family. I hated to see him leave for another state. He was understanding and helpful from thr first appointment when I broke my ankle. He also explained the procedures and process to me and my family. He is more than I expected.

I was very impressed with Dr. Hood. He was quite knowledgeable and caring. I have previously been to other foot doctors, but chose to find a better podiatrist. I am really glad that I found him and highly recommend him.
