My husband and I both are patients of Dr. Hood. We have always found that Dr. Hood and his staff are very professional and caring. They are always willing to take the time to answer questions and concerns we might have. I would recommend Dr. Hood to friends & family and to anyone who is looking for an excellent Doctor.

Very compassionate and caring doctor. I have been a patient of Dr Hood for over 5 years. I have fibromyalgia and migraines. At times the pain is excruciating... I am a prisoner in my own home. I have had 2 hip replacements and sinus surgery during this time and have a difficult time with pain meds... I get migraines from them! Dr Hood has been very patient in finding ways to help my pain.
