We are extremely impressed & thankful for Dr. Wood! While visiting the Palm Desert area, my husband had a medical emergency & was hospitalized at Eisenhower Hospital. The hospital asked Dr. Wood to evaluate & treat my husband. Dr. Wood is professional, friendly & very knowledgeable in his field. He is a great communicator - thorough in his explanations & recommendations. We highly recommend Dr. Wood to anyone needing an expert podiatrist. He was a blessing during a very stressful time!!!

After a fall in 2015, I was seeing Dr who just gave me shots with no relief of my pain So I wanted a second opinion and was referred to Dr. Wood. After looking at my prior X-rays he saw I was walking around with a lisfranc fracture for 3 years. He ordered a CT scan and within weeks I was being prepared for midfoot fusion surgery. Dr. Wood put me at ease answering my questions and explaining what the plan was to help me. If you're looking for an knowledgeable surgeon look no further.

After a poor result of a previous surgery, Dr. Wood saved my leg! He helped me heal my wounds and redid the surgery that had been messed up on me before. He is a very caring doctor and traveled an hour for each of my visits. After our visits I felt like I could trust Dr. Wood completely. He gave me confidence in the surgical plan he presented for my specific situation. I'm now healed, and doing things I love to do!
