Specialties

Dr. William C Wood has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

Dr. Wood has been my therapist for three years. He is both direct and compassionate. He is great at making patients feel understood and he takes feedback well. I am a teenager and not only is he a great therapist to me, but he helps to mediate my parents as well without it feeling like his association with them is encroaching on my own process. I have come a long way working with Dr. Wood and hope to continue to for a long time. I recommend Dr. Wood highly.

Dis Grace

I brought my 12 year old son to Dr. Wood when his former provider left the practice. Dr. Wood was then a 2nd year resident (not disclosed to us at the time). Dr. Wood crossed boundaries and causing such trust issues for my son that to this day, my son who is now 22, dislikes this man. I am cannot believe this man is allowed to practice. I wish I had NEVER ever taken this recommendation.
