Left Total Knee Incision & Drainage
Mark identified the infection and made immediate, and possibly limb-saving, decision to admit and schedule my surgery two days later.

Dr. Hood is very caring and seems up-to-date on all the latest techniques. He is a very good listener and doesn’t interrupt or hurry you. His staff is courteous and efficient. There was a ten minute wait to see him but that is actually very good compared to other medical appointments I’ve been to. Office is clean and has close easy parking.

Excellent doctor & surgeon!
I had an unrelated procedure done recently. I noted afterward that there was increasing pain in my back and hip. It was in the area of the right hip which Dr. Hood replaced. I called his office on a Monday and saw him the next day. My new hip was fine, but some nerves in my back had become irritated. He placed me on some meds to deal with that. Felt much better the following day. I honestly can't recall a doctor seeing me that quickly since the 1970s.

Over the top satisfaction
When I met with Dr Hood I had TKR scheduled 8/2/2022 with another surgeon. I wasn’t confident that I NEEDED TKR. DR Hood confirmed I would benefit from non invasive pain management and in his mind felt my arthritis was not severe. We made a plan to manage my pain- no narcotics. He is a confident surgeon, professional and makes decisions based on the patient’s well being, not $. I told him I was a praying woman and had prayed for the right answers. God led me to Dr Hood. He is now my Doctor.

Welcoming, kind, attentive
Dr. Hood came in shook my hand, introduced himself, then listened as I told him of the years of knee pain I've been having. After reviewing my x-rays he is in agreement on TKR, hopefully after my right is replaced, within 3 months we can do the left. Both are shot. I felt very comfortable and at ease with Dr. Hood, I feel he cared and listened to the me as I described my lifestyle and daily activities, as well as the PAIN!!

Great visit! Dr Hood was prompt, actually a few minutes early. He is very friendly and engaging. He gave my knees a very thorough examination and discussed the X-rays with me. He explained my condition and took plenty of time to answer my questions. I look forward to getting to know him as we work toward resolving my knee issues.

Best bedside manner!
Dr. Hood was amazing with my daughter and made her feel comfortable the entire time. He was patient and gentle and made this traumatic event not as scary. He even took the time to look at her map of her playground and let her know what she could and couldn't do. Highly recommend!
