    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

Worst Doctor I've ever had displeasure to see - Avoid at all costs!

I went to see Dr. Woods because he was only MD available right away- now I know why!. Dr Woods did not do any tests (RED FLAG) to make sure of his diagnoses. I will not go back to him. Please save yourself the money and time even if you have to go to urgent care or hospital! WORST MD EVER!

I'm not real big on going to the Dr. But, Dr. Woods and staff were very professional, caring, and made my experience very positive. I would highly recommend them for all your gastro needs.

Worst GI in idaho

This was my doctor for 4 years and all he did is put me on all these different meds some of them (Remacaid) cost about $3,000 every two months. When it couldn't afford this Medication he stopped helping me out all together. I even was insured. Didn't precribe anything to me just gave me the boat out the door. I was only 17 at the time. I am now 24 and found they are so many great doctors out there that arent selfish and take vacations 2 times a mouth. This is the worst doctor i have ever had and would never subjust him to anyone even people i don't like....

Dr Wood is the most personable doctor I've ever seen. He takes his time and listens to what I have to say. Anytime I meet someone in the main hospital who has had the pleasure of working with/talking with Dr Wood, they've always had wonderful things to say about him.
