Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wood "Dr. William Wood, MD, Psychiatrist in Rockford, Illinois. You can contact Dr. William Wyatt Wood  at (815) 261-0537, verified by Psychology Today. For the past 36 years of my career as a Psychiatrist, I have worked well with all persons without regard to age, race, sexual orientation, religion, or political philosophy. I believe that mental disorders have multiple causes and do not always require medications. Treatment must be tailored to the individual!You can expect that I will listen with a sympathetic yet experienced, trained ear that will consider all that you share with me in formulating a treatment plan that fits you as the individual you have become who is seeking solace, comfort, and healing. You will, of course, be treated at all times with dignity, compassion, and respect."
