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
