An Exceptional Surgeon and Doctor

Dr. Hood is an excellent surgeon who diagnosed my back problem, scheduled a prompt surgery, and performed the operation to the highest standard. I am now free of all pain and have a normal life. Dr. Hood has a great bedside manner but even it he didn't his skills would cause me to recommend him to anyone having a back problem needing surgery.

Dr. Hood saved my life...

When Dr. Hood seen me for the first time - after being diagnosed with a large Acoustic Neuroma brain tumor with secondary - severe - Hydrocephalus - I was in critical condition. My tumor was 3cm and was pushing on my third ventricle causing severe Hydrocephalus. I was very sick and he scheduled surgery two weeks after our first meeting. He took the time to explain every step of the procedure. He always made me feel as though I was his only patient and his compassion for his patients is indescribable; he always spoke with a positive tone. The first surgery - to remove the tumor - was projected to take eight hours; however, once he opened my skull and assessed the extensive damage - and the tumor was stuck to my brain stem - it took 17 hours to successfully remove the tumor. I owe this man my life. I unfortunately had many complications post-op, for years, and he took such good care of me. Marian, his surgical nurse, was equally outstanding along with everyone on his staff.
