What People Say About Dr. Richard Hood, MD

Dr Hood was poor. He did not help me; I still have my medical problem, which is a very simple one. I am a professor in the sciences, and when I tried to discuss my problem, he showed me he was severely limited in his understanding of physiology and medicine. He was very pompous and thought very highly of himself, but he was had dull intelligence. He relied on the stock phrase, "I am the doctor." He was poor, and I am now in search of another ENT physician. I cannot recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Hood is very personable and professional. Have been assosiated with going on ten years for age related hearing loss. I had a virus that caused a "Sudden Hearing Loss" in left ear and went for consultation. By that time, the ear had recovered. But he took the time to examin the outter ear and found an abnormal coating on the ear drum and removed it. That in itself improved my hearing in the left ear in conjunction with my hearing aid. Professional and personable. A very good combination.

Had a septoplasty done by Dr. Hood two years ago to correct my deviated septum and my septum is still deviated. He didn’t even order a CT scan...he just went into surgery to operate on me blindly. Now I have to try and find another ENT to fix my septum, which should have been done already. A lot of money was spent and wasted to correct my septum which has been causing breathing problems my entire life. I’m more disappointed that I’m going to have to go through this entire process again someday.

I got sick the end of January with what at first seemed like bronchitis. Main problem was post nasal drip and persistent nagging cough. visits to my primary care physician two visits to an allergy asthma doctor. Pulmonary function test to check for asthma creating the cough and still no true answers to my symptoms. I saw Dr. Hood and in 10 minutes he figured out I had a really really bad sinus infection in one of my left sinuses. He is amazing!!!!! thank you so much Dr. Hood!!!!
