  • Dr. Hood is amazing!!!! I had him as my cardiologist and then had an episode that put me in the hospital at St. Thomas. When I was discharged I came back to Dr. Hood. He explains everything and he takes time with me. He is very knowledgeable and answers all my questions. I am very blessed to have him as my cardiologist!!!
