WakeMed Patient - February 2020

The Cortizone shot was very effective in eliminating my pain.

WakeMed Patient - February 2020

The staff is always amazing. The nurses as well as Dr. Wood. I appreciate how attentive they are with me. I notice their interactions with others in the common areas and they are always smiling and showing concerns. They never turn their back on patients as many other doctors office do.. It may seem small but they always acknowledge you with a personal greeting which seems they are genuinely happy you decided to use their facility.

WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Consulted Dr. Wood regarding pain in knees due to arthritis and general deterioration. I had seen Dr, Wood twice before for cortisone injections. I am more interested in maintaining joint function instead of seeking any type of replacement. Dr. Wood also supports that. Received cortisone injections in both knees, with recommendation that if these injections don''t last more than three months, viscous injections could be tried. I am also having issues with limited range of motion in right hip and was referred to PT to see if that would help.

WakeMed Patient - January 2020

Everyone and everything was excellent . Dr. Wood is a very skilled professional but he is also very personable. His explanation, before, during and after his care is easily understood with emphasis on dos and don''ts that impact the success of his surgery and the patient''s wellbeing. Great job.
