wonderful doctor who died too soon

Dr. Woods saved my life in 2004. I had been sick for two years being told it was all in my mind because every test kept being normal. Finally I was referred to see Dr. Woods. He seen me and in one day knew my thyroid was going inward sent me to surgery same day. Turns out if not for the surgery that day I would had died that night as my thyroid was growing inward and was over 6 times the normal size and had wrapped around my jugular chord. He took the time to talk to me I mean really listened, he cared and was very compassionate. Always a kind word and a kick in the butt of the nicest kind. We have loss a wonderful doctor in a fatal car crash today. RIH Dr. Donald Gene Woods

Brilliant Doctor, Great Staff

Dr Donald Wood is the best medical professional I have ever had the pleasure to work with. This man is the tops in his field (endocrinology) - unlike most other MDs he takes his time with you and actually does read your labs, radiology reports and all of your information and uses that info to determine the best course of action for you, leaving no stone unturned. His staff is wonderful, pleasant, helpful and efficient. Beautiful, friendly office and brilliant Doctor - if you came here then you came to the right place! There is no place better.

This office is a joke. You can never get an actually person on the phone. If by chance you are lucky enough too. The staff is extremely rude and nasty. I recently called a prescription in for my very ill mother. After waiting a little over a week the pharmacy informed me that they had sent 4 request for authorization. Dr. Woods office claimed that they sent in the authorization. I don't bieve it at all. This isn't the first time this has happened. Plus the other 2 prescriptions that need doctors authorization (different doctors office) were authorized and filled. I fully plan on changing providers for my mother. Stay away from this doctor.

I do not trust this Dr based on my experience

I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. I was referred to Dr by my PCP due to thyroid issues. I have been chronically I'll for 6 months. My first impression was horrible. This office offers weight loss services but the Dr and much of the staff is very much over weight. I filled out a huge health history before the appointment. While waiting to be seen, I watched as Dr Wood scrambled about. He reviewed my 15 minutes of paper work in less than 60 seconds and then came to meet me. He spent a very brief amount of time with me and adjusted my medication. At a later appt he ordered tests. The staff was not clear on his instructions so they guessed their way through it. I was told to come back in 3 wks for result. I waited over an hour. Dr Wood came in to tell me they had lost the results and to come back in 4 weeks to get the same results. Also, they do not return phone calls. Dr Wood was a waste of time, money and energy. Another Dr could have been helping me get well in the time he wasted.

I have read all the negative reviews and I cannot believe this is the same man I see for my diabetes. Dr Wood and his staff treat me promptly, friendly and with respect. I have never waited more than 10 min for my appt, and its usually because I am early. Dr. Wood is very easy to speak with, works with me on my meds for cost as well as effectiveness, and is understanding about my diet and weight as relates to my disease. I was referred to Dr. Wood by my endocrinologist who assured me Dr. Wood would know how to help me control my diabetes and keep my heart condition in mind, and he has done so quite well.
