Dr Hood for all of my visits, surgeries, and follow-ups has been outstanding! He cares about patients, he makes sure they have everything they need, and his surgeries on me have been extremely rewarding, getting me pain-free after 20 years

It's unusual for me to give anyone any Very Good ratings, but Dr Hood and Reanne certainly earned them. My partner and I were very pleased with their attention and discussion.

Reanne listened to my full explanation of problem w/o interruption. Went back over it to ask/receive q/a. Dr Hood had a good head start on the exam with Reanne's data.
