He is the most honest doctor I have ever been too. He is straight forth. He will always tell you the truth about your eyes and how you can protect them. He is an excellent doctor and very perfectionist.

Yes I went to Dr. Wood for a second opinion..and wow I would never go back to him he compared my situation to his patients before and told me to be grateful and that I was a sensitive person..He said there was things in my eyes but just to adjust to it..I am grateful for everything but I didn’t go to him to be compared to anyone else I went for my situation..I left his office feeling hopeless..Glad all Doctors are not like him..or I would never see one.
