      I had been seeing another ortho for > 1 year with no resolution or change in approach to my care. I therefore decided to see another surgeon, and chose Dr. Wood. She quickly identified my issues, had some images done to confirm her initial diagnosis and had me on the operating table in less than two weeks. Less than two weeks post-op I already feel much better. She is an excellent surgeon, her office staff is friendly and helpful, and she got me results! I would definitely recommend her!

      Dr. Wood performed out-patient surgery to relieve the Dupuytrens Contraction in my right hand. My experience with Dr. Wood and her staff was outstanding. I was treated with courtesy, respect, and understanding from the moment I first entered the office for consultation until successful completion of the procedure several weeks later. I highly recommend Dr. Woods. The pleasant and caring spirit among all the staff speaks to Dr. Woods' outstanding leadership and professionalism.

      Don't even bother with this doctor if you are trying to get a second opinion. . They'll tell you they are "too busy" to see you. Arrogant attitude, after demanding all sorts of medical records from you.

      My carpal tunnel (no scar visible!) and Osteo Arthritic wrist reconstruction (tiny/discrete scar) surgery, two years ago this Sept. 30th, has resulted in my return to excellent hand activities for me, a VERY ACTIVE 78yo g-grandmother! I sing Dr. Wood's praises to EVERYONE with whom I come in contact, telling them where to find her office and where she performs her surgeries. I think her techniques are state of the art (from anesthetic methods to post-op care). I am forever grateful to her.

      I was given diagnosis of sever ulnar nerve damage (funny bone nerve) and was referred to Dr. Wood on a Friday; the first available appointment was early the next week due the severity ... Had a 20 minute consultation after great intro/history meeting with her team ... she went out of her way to schedule me for surgery that same Friday. I can say enough about the whole team there. My surgery went fine and in a very reassuring environment at the surgery center at Medical City.

      Dr. Wood approaches perfection in practice that focuses on/and arm issues. Staff is courteous/friendly, a difficult achievement in today's medical parameters of moving patients quickly through the process. Dr. Wood immediately gained my confidence; her expertise is obvious, and she explains in informative ways that aren't condescending. Due to some complications occurring before 1st visit, treatment was delayed; once prognosis made, surgery scheduled next day. Special kudos to therapist Nicole.

      I consulted Dr. Wood about two separate problems, one on each hand. She thoroughly examined each hand, recommended an Xray, and discussed multiple treatment options. She certainly did not pressure me into surgery, but said it was an option because of the severity of the problem. I thought her explanations were good, and she gave me an instruction sheet which illustrated my problem. I also thought her staff was very professional. I would certainly recommend her to others.

      Awful experience. They make us wait for over one hour before seeing the doctor. the staff and Doctor bedside manners were the worst. They don't care about patients but how they can take your money. Stay away from this dr. Wood.

      I have had several operations by Dr. Wood and she is most professional as is her staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Wood to anyone who is having issues with their hands.
