Ratings for Dr. Richard K. Hood
I have been seeing Dr. Hood since 2004, and I can tell you that he is one of the best pain management docs I have seen! I've been seeking help from Tennessee, North Carolina, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and then here, and finally, I'm having my pain managed! Dr. Hood takes the time to listen to your concerns and tries his best to get you pain free, or at least managed. I have to clarify on my "Punctuality" rating above: This is only if you get seen in an office other than Riverwalk. The Riverwalk office is very, very busy and often runs late. Also, on the "Amount You Paid", I have a secondary insurance, which is why I don't have a deductible.
I have been seeing Dr. Hood since 2003 and I cannot say enough great things about him. I have NEVER met a more compassionate, caring, helpful physician ever. He is one of those very rare doctors that takes the time to listen to his patients and doesn't rush through appointments. We had to try a bunch of different medications and treatments inititally to get my pain under control but he never doubted me or blew me off when I would report less than stellar results with a certain treatment. He always went above and beyond to help find something that worked for me. If you have specific concerns or questions, he makes sure they are addressed. He has made living with an illness that causes chronic pain bearable for me. I am so thankful that my regular doctor referred me to him. More doctors should follow his lead and start treating patients like they matter.
I've been a patient of Dr. Hood for several years and I have to say that I have never met a doctor as nice, compassionate, intelligent and caring as he is. He is one of those rare doctors out there that takes the time to listen to your concerns, offers solutions and NEVER rushes you through an appt. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to him.
