We started seeing Dr. Wood after he was the only one to properly diagnose my dear dogs autoimmune disease. I went to 3 other vets, all of whom were happy to run up fees testing for this and giving cortisone and allergy shots for that. This doctor has seen it all, and he is honest about the options you need to consider . I'm his forever fan! He is gruff, direct and firm, but once he knows you and your pet, he really warms up and clearly loves animals. They don't take your animal in back here to hide procedures. Instead, you help hold and know just what you're paying for. Pricing is very fair, less than many vets, and he's never tried to sell me on unnecessary treatments or ""care"" packages. The review saying ""no bedside manner"" is right, but I still go for good, straight shooting medical care!
