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 for a hearing issue and his staff was very polite and timely! When I saw the Doctor he was very professional and kind and took care of my issue in office and explained to me how I could prevent future visits. I appreciated the thoroughness and nature of my visit. Additional the office was very clean and in a good location

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
