Patient Reviews (4)
in Garland, TX |
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.
in Ft Worth, TX |
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.
in Dallas, TX |
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.
in Dallas, TX |
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.
