Dr. Wood Jr Says:

These responses were made while I was working at a rural Community Health Clinic. 75% of my patients were uninsured at that time. I don't know who posted these ratings, but I dealt with many drug seeking patients during this time. However, I cared for hundreds of other wonderful patients while working in community health. Also, I was in private practice in Columbus, GA for 38 years prior.
