Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wood III "I have over 22 years of experience being a "Comprehensive Ophthalmologist" meaning that I treat a broad variety of eye conditions including, but not limited to, simple glasses exams, red eye, infections, dry eye, eye injuries, diabetic eye problems, cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal problems.  I commonly see emergency "walk-in" patients who have painful eye conditions, have lost vision, or have some other acute eye problem.

In addition to providing medical care and eye glasses exams, I perform many eye surgeries including LASIK, PRK, cataract, glaucoma, and lid surgery.

My practice philosophy, and that of my office, is one of compassion, responsiveness, and responsibility towards our patients.  In reviewing online ratings please take into account that I see up to 200 patients a week, and that, if for any reason you have a problem with our service or my care, please don't hesitate to call our office so that we can try to fix things for you."

Patient Comments (21)

Rushed and refers questions to his techs. During my last visit, he was literally backing out of the room as I was attempting to ask him a question about my diagnosis.
