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."

Dr. Wood III Says:
I certainly appreciate the positive feedback and comments about our practice for those of you who left them. However, if you left a negative comment, please understand that things are busy in medical practices these days and given that we are a busy practice, there is the possibility that some aspect of your visit did not go as we would like; we truly apologize for this, and ask that...
