Dr. Wood is a master at what he does and I consider myself especially fortunate to have had him as my orthopedic surgeon. He is skilled, compassionate, optimistic, patient and willing to think outside the box. He recently performed my bilateral anterior total hip replacements with superior results. I cannot say enough about this man and am very sorry to see him relocating to Georgia. But I know this; the quality of orthopedic surgery in GA has just grown in leaps and bounds. Thank you, Dr. Wood

Broke my ankle in 3 places, a trimalleolareal fracture, one of the worst fractures to have.Dr Wood did the surgery which included a lot of hardware & also surgery 2 yrs later to remove hardware,was still experiencing pain, discomfort, stiffness.Will need another 6 months to see how it goes.He is the best Dr. I ever had. Took time to explain things, was always kind & caring, a genuine person as well as a great Dr. Sadly, he is leaving the practice today, moving to Georgia.I will miss him greatly.

Dr Wood's attitude and demeanor appears to be one of concern and positive Guidance. However over the period of 9 years his true colors show of greed and evil, I would not refer anyone to him.
