in Wirtz Vs |
Very good Doctor.
in Rocky Mount, Virginia |
Dr. Wood is and always has been a top-notch, exceptional ophthalmologist ! Not only does he have the "smarts", but also is gifted with a good personality and knows how to put patients at ease. Today was probably my last visit with him because I am now 85 and my sons do not want me to drive to Roanoke out on Hershberger Road when I can see a Vistar doctor in Rocky Mount now. I have been with Dr. Wood for a very long time, and I will miss seeing him, but that's what happens with aging (me).
