I was referred to Dr. Wood by my dentist because I had a tooth that was in pretty bad shape and I needed the expertise of an oral surgeon. My first appointment I was greeted like a friend and the service I got from start to finish was amazing. He took the time to explain the procedure, the risks, and made me feel as comfortable as possible before even starting. Afterwards I had some issues and he fixed it promptly and with a smile. I will definitely use him again for any future work I need done.
Thank you for the wonderful review. It was our pleasure to take care of you! Please feel free to contact us if we can assist you in the future.

Dr. Wood communicated to me in a clear, specific, practical manner, answered my questions concisely, and showed understanding of my pain and vulnerable condition. I also found the front desk staff, technicians, and assistant very positive, friendly, approachable, courteous, helpful, and compassionate. I virtually never complete a survey, however my positive experience compelled me to give feedback. Thank you for caring for me in my hour of need. You all made it easy. I appreciate it.
Our pleasure! Glad to hear you had a 5-star experience. If you need anything in the future, we'd be happy to assist.

Dr. Wood explained the procedure clearly and what to expect afterwards. Surprised me when I received calls on three consecutive days, after surgery, to check on how I was doing-this was over the Christmas holiday!
It means the world to us that you had a great experience. Thank you for the review! Please tell your friends and family!
