My few experiences with Dr. Wood were great and he seemed like he really cared. But I had blood work ran and never got the chance to go over it.. I had 5 appointments cancelled by his office team and got a call last night that he was closing the office. Life goes on I get it but I wish I would've know sooner before e the night before my 5th appointment for the blood work results. Now I'm searching for a new doctor because the blood work was so important and I still don't know the results.

My wife and I and our adult son are all patients of Dr. Wood. We believe that Dr. Wood is a one of a kind dedicated physician who gives you really good quality medical care. Under Dr. Wood's care, our son was able to control his diabetes and no longer has to take metformin. We are grateful indeed, to have Dr. Wood as our personal physician. M & R Jasper, TN

Dr Wood is an knowledgeable, meticulously careful doctor. I have been seeing him for at least 20 years. He cares about his patients and will work hard to get the best results for them. I am 78 years old and have gone from 320 + lbs to 190 lbs and play tennis twice a week. If you read the negative comments carefully you will see that these people don't have a clue about what it takes to deliver good health care.

People who complained about time were patients at Beacon Health where they tried to mke him see patients every 15 mins or so. That is one reason he left. Now his wonderful and homey office does it at a rate he works at. One time at beacon he spent over an hour with me and corrected meds I needed and the health dept gave me when I was going out of the country-- saved my life, as he did for my sister in law on another occasion. If you want a sweet talker find a counselor-- if you want a superb d

Dr. Wood is an extremely intelligent doctor. His number one concern is his patients. He is not in a hurry to get you in and out of his office. He is very thorough in his exams He is opinionated especially when it comes to anything getting in the way of his best care for his patients. My family is more than satisfied with the excellent care Dr. Wood provides.
