I was referred to Dr Hood by my primary physician and I’m glad I was!! I had seen other ENTs over the years because of a cyst on my larynx & all of them said we just need to watch it to see if it gets bigger. Dr. Hood was the first to diagnose and treat the problem. I saw him for a follow up visit as well and same experience with he and staff. Consequently, I no longer have an irritating cyst on my larynx. I can't thank him enough. He was so patient-centered, and made me feel comfortable. I thoroughly recommend him!

I would highly recommend him!! I have been coming to Dr. Hood for years for my ear Problems, and the staff and office are always nice and professional and clean. On this visit, I was more worried than usual about some thing I had not experienced before, and Dr. Hood handled my concerns with compassion and answered all of my questions. I felt he was particularly patient with me even though I wasn’t quite sure what I was asking and therefore kept asking the same question over and over. Dr. Hood put me at ease with the reassurance and proactive treatments to avoid my ear pain. Thank you so much!!

The women at the front desk were incredibly kind. So was the woman who took me back to an examination room. However, that kindness stopped there. Dr. Hood was in a rush, he didn't explain anything he was doing. In fact, he wouldn't make eye contact with me. Everything he did, I had to ask what and why he was doing it and he seemed annoyed with me when I started asking question. He wanted to put a scope up my nose and look at my throat and vocal chords but I wouldn't let him. Again, he didn't tell me he was going to do that. I had to ask him when he grabbed the device off of the wall. He became even more confrontational with me when I told him no and stormed out of the examination room. This man should be working in a laboratory where he doesn't work with people.

Office staff was efficient and wait time was minimal. Once in exam room there was also a very short wait. When Dr Hood came in he seemed rushed. I had decided not to continue at this time with exam and was explaining this. Because he was not listening to me or answering questions he and proceeded with exam to my surprise. At the end of exam there was very brief explanation and he abruptly left. I wasn’t sure if he was done or not, I had to go out in hallway to ask if I was done.

Dr. Hood is extremely knowledgeable and pinpointed my nasal bruise right away. I was so incredibly relieved to hear that my nose was not broken! Though quiet, Dr. Hood was very kind, listened to my issue and had been extremely helpful with my nose and sinus/ear issues. He’s fantastic! Highly recommend!

I saw dr hood in Mar. He diagnosed my severe ear pain as an allergy (incorrect). I am a snowbird and returned to Wi in may. After completing a regime of unnecessary allergy meds and nose spray I contacted his office to ask if he'd prescribe something else since I was in pain. His staff said he said not until I return to Fl in 5 mos and come see him. Another 5 mos of pain?? Staff doesn't return calls. Requested itemized bill when checking out, never rec'd. No explanation why portal not avail
