Ratings for Dr. Gavin Wood
Dr. Wood, although a very knowledgeable surgeon, leaves a lot to be desired. He certainly makes you feel like just a number not a patient. his bed side manner is severely lacking. He is rude and abrupt and unwilling to work within the patients means. If he would simply remember that his patients are people with feelings and who are living with painful issues who need someone to listen and help them the experience would be much better. stop rushing people out the door. stop having an intern do your job and then spending 5 seconds with your patient and telling them you don't have time for their questions. All I ask is that you try to remember there is a human being with feelings who is going through a lot at the other end of that joint you are examining. you expect them to be kind and respectful and they expect the same.
A life changer! At the age of 40, another surgeon told me I would need to spend at least the next decade in pain until I was "old enough" to have a replacement surgery. Dr. Wood looked at my quality of life and booked me for surgery. I'm 4 months post op, and feel better than I have in 5 years. I can't say enough good things about him... he's extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled, with a very open approachable bedside manner. A true asset to the Kingston area!
I was sent to see a Ortho Sx in Toronto that had no answers for me. Told me that he could not find anything wrong with my hip. After seeing Dr Wood he gave me insight...there were many issues wrong with my hip including arthritis, hip dyspalsia, micro factures and synovial cysts. So now I am waiting for a THR and cant wait to be pain free! SK
Dr. Wood is an exceptionally caring doctor. He gave me a full diagnosis promptly. It was such a relief for me as up until that point the diagnosis was not clear and that meant I had to live with the pain and it's serious impact on my life. Fortunately Dr. Wood is also collaborative practitioner so one of his colleges did the surgery (Dr. Harrison). I remain grateful to Dr. Woods for his part in my diagnosis and then my total hip replacement surgery which I had in late 2013. I am active again and enjoying life - Thank you (from me and my family). J. Green, Ottawa ON
