  • I just want to say that Dr. Warren Wood has been my and my husband's doctor for more than 30 years. He's retiring in September and we will miss him greatly. He is the best doctor that we have ever had and we're just going to miss him. We wish him well on his well deserved retirement. Thank you.

  • Dr. Wood, [Name] & his staff always care for me & my family with extreme kindness & professionalism. He always takes the time to listen & understand my issues & follows thru to their resolution. He is a treasure that can not be replaced.Thank you for all you have done to improve our lives.

  • He's the most thorough doctor I've ever been to in my entire life. He's he's a phenomenal human being also very concerned about his patients and... goes 100% to make sure that you're under his... great year. Thank you pass committees questions.

  • The program that you have for the medical staff to use is not very efficient. They have to look through several screens to get results that should be always updated and have all the patient's info on the very first click. Time is taken away from the patient talking to the doctor because he has to look up so much info. Time management and organization are the key to success. Fifteen minutes is not enough time for a doctors visit. I always feel rushed and unable to speak to the doctor about all my medical issues.

  • Everyone treated you with respect. I am going to miss Dr. Wood. I'm in good shape because of him and I am 86 yrs old.

  • Was concerned about my overall well being.

Everyone that works there is wonderful from the girl that greeted me at the door to take my temperature to, you know, checking out with, you know with everything that with the instructions of Dr Wood, so that's it, everything's great, they're awesome. So thanks so much.

  • Could not have been a better experience

  • The provider did not have an accurate list of the medications I take.

  • I have been part of Dr. Wood's office for probably 30 years and everybody's been great. During this pandemic I know they're not a lots of people in the office, and when you talk to the phone bank, you know, I think it's kind of difficult for those people to transfer what you really want to say to the office and I just don't think there enough people working there and I know it's to be safe and I understand that but I it's not just me lots of people that I know who who go to Dr. Wood's not Dr. Wood's patient necessary, but that at our office feel the same way that this something lacking and people don't get back to you and then prescriptions are kinda messed up and and I'm sorry to say that because everything has always been great and Dr. Wood's office, but right now through the pandemic other offices that I go to to*

It's old fashion style medicine that makes a difference. Thank you.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
