  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

greatest Doctor ever

Dr David Woods is a wonderful, caring doctor. I have been going to him as long as i can remember and would not want to go to anothet Family Doctor. He is a Doctor that actually listens to you and takes the time to talk to you and ask questions. You don't feel like you are a time clock or feel rushed. I am writing this review because i will be leaving Va Beach for Texas next month and hope that i can find a good doctor there. If you are looking for a good family doctor, pleas call Dr Wpod's .

Five Stars

I have been going to Dr. Woods since I was 19 and I am 50 now. I will not go to anyone else. He listens to you and does not try to convince you that you need something you don't really need. I recommend him to everyone.
