When I arrived at my appointment I was greeted by a friendly staff. When the doctor saw me he answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable. He was very professional and I feel like I am in good hands. I would highly recommend Dr. Wood.

Kyle – Jul 11, 2020
I saw Dr Wood as a AME for a work related injury. Although i found him to be pleasant he did not overall assist my case. He ordered additionally tests and got results thats i do have sufficient upper and lower extremities nerve damage which he wanted to verify. He still didn't give me a rating only referred me back to my primary. Waste of my time..my primary could have done the emg testing. Unless.

Danielle in Colt, CA – Feb 11, 2019
I have seen Dr. Wood three times over the past year for a worker comp claim, he was designated as the AME doctor. I have found Dr. Wood to be fair and objective in evaluating me for the court case. It is true that you will be waiting for some time before being seen, from the time I arrived to the time I left was three hours each time. However, he spent a lot of time with me, he listened and was honest in his assessment. After going thru this terrible maze of worker's comp, I feel he was the best

I went to Dr. Wood for a QME examination . He was very open upfront that his concerns are for the patient and he assured me that he did not work on behalf of insurance companies or large business. I felt that he was very thorough with the exam and I felt that he was honest with me, I would highly recommend Dr. Wood.

Joe in Lake Elsinore – Mar 02, 2018
I was very pleased with Dr. Wood. He is the first Dr. out of the last 3 i have seen, that actually took the time to show me whats actually wrong with my back. He also had a very nice personality and i feel i am now better equipped to make future decisions regarding what the best solution for me is, as far as my back injury. So far i have had a very good experience with him and the clinic

J LO in Twin Peaks Ca – Sep 06, 2016
Dr. Wood examined me to determine my final disability rating following an injury from work. He was very knowledgeable and gave me very valuable information. He was kind and let me know he was patient friendly, that he was not in this for the money or corporations, but for the patients. I believed him because of the care I received. I had to bring my 2 year old with me, and he and his staff were very kind to my child as well!
