I have had GI problems since I was in my teens. I'm now in my mid 50s. I recently relocated to TN from Texas. Dr. Hood was recommended to me by my PCP. I have never had a doctor treat me like an inconvenience. Terrible bedside manner. Didn't even care to hear about my history - which is extensive. I was trying to explain the reason I needed to see him, and he cut me off. I will not recommend him, and I will not return to see him again. I wish I had seen these reviews sooner.

I have been a patient of doctor Hood for 15 years. He has taken good care of me and my son. I recommend him.

The worst experience with a Dr. or Nursing staff I have ever experienced! Dr. didn't even read my file before or after the colonoscopy. He then wasn't even going to do anything for the issues I was having and I had to strongly request further testing. The procedure lasted less than 7 minutes. The staff forgot to put me on the schedule. The nurse practicioner refused to let me speak and would consistantly interrupt me. Dr. updated my husband of the results while he was walking away.
