Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Wood is easy to work with and listens to what I say. He offers his opinion on the issues and will follow up with tests as needed. He is very helpful in providing information so I can better understand my issues. With him it is helpful if I study my issues a little before the appointment so I can bring questions that may not come up at the appointment.
We discussed recent lab results and ongoing treatment concerns. Also discussed other non medical subjects in our lives.
Great guy. Personable.
He was polite and professional
Professional, sensitive, and proactive…he inspires confidence without being overbearing and pompous.
Stellar individual. Prognosticator extroidinare. Magical insights into the undiscovered ailment. Aided by a fantastic and caring staff. Can't say enough about the experience.
Dr Wood is professional and pleasant. I had to wait a little longer today, but once he was in the exam room things went along well. Staff was pleasant and professional.
I remember there wasn't any pain?
Good, thorough appointment and follow-up on labs.
Dr. Wood and Michelle and the other nurse assistant (sorry I didn't catch your name) were very efficient and fine. I made the appointment through ZooDoc. I said I wanted to "get my numbers" because my last lab tests were a year ago. But, when I went in today, the receptionist, and the others, all thought I was there for a lab results consultation. So I had to explain again. Which reminds me - I did try calling for an appt several times and always got the voice mail, so I gave up and went to ZooDoc.
Very personable, balanced, listened well, not in a hurry
First encounter was pleasant enough. He seemed a little preoccupied and not entirely focused on getting to know me as a patient establishing myself under his care, but his medical knowledge was competent and he covered the all the ground we needed to for the purpose of my visit.
Good visit. Addressed my concerns efficiently.
I've been with Dr. Wood since 2008. I come prepared with a list of concerns or questions so that we do not waste time. Dr. Wood does not rush through the appointment and we are able to chat a little of non-medical personal matters.
Dr. Wood seems very businesslike and helpful. Good prompt service.
I appreciate Dr. Wood's thoroughness and easy going manner.
I was irritated that I had to wait 45 minutes. Would have helped if someone had come out and spoken to me about it.
I'm very happy with Dr. Wood. He's been my primary care physician since about 2008. He's always been spot-on with diagnosis & treatment. This time I went in for my annual physical. Every concern of mine was heard & addressed. Another thing: since 2009 I've been without health insurance. BlueCross/BlueShield dropped me after 25 years because of costly colon surgery. I could not afford insurance so I only saw Dr. Wood when sick or injured & paid upfront for cash discount. Lately I qualified for the OR Health Plan. I'm pleased & impressed that Dr. Wood serves members from OHP.
I like Dr. Wood as a person, not just as my healthcare provider. He's a good guy.
Very pleased. I arrived late and was seen quickly.
Always great with answering my medical concerns and treating it.
Professional, attentive, friendly, prompt....
Always a pleasure to visit with Dr. Wood. He is attentive and provides alternative solutions when available. He has a warm and humorous personality.
I like the man. Even though out of my network provider's network, I am sticking with Dr. Wood.
Listened to me and answered my questions in a manner that was easy to understand. Clinic has all records scanned and or recorded and accessed by computers.
I felt he listened to me and my concerns; his recommendations were a breath of fresh air and I plan to follow them.
Not pleased with him at all. Doesn't seem to really care about my husbands needs at all. No compassion at all. I would not recommend him to anyone. My friend had gone to him a couple of times when he was filling in for Dr Vals and she said never again will she go to him. We will be changing doctors for my husband and not going back to Dr wood again.
I cannot write h=Re because it keeps replacing my woeds.
I was well satisfied with my visit because Dr. Wood was very helpful and answered all my questions.
I thinkhe is a wonderful Dr. He tells it like it is and that works for me. I have referred numerous family members to him. He is helpful and doesnt beat around the bush. Awesome doctor!
I was extremely comfortable with him within a few minutes. He asked many questions and answered all of my concerns. Will be pleased to have him as my Primary Doctor for years to come and am glad those that referred him to me were leading me to the best possible place.
Dr. Wood is great!
I was quite pleased with Dr. Wood's professionalism, sensitivity, and his down to earth approach.
My appointment was late in the day, so I expected a longer wait time to see Dr. Wood. I was seen initially by the nurse within 10 minutes of my appointment.
As usual, Chuck and I have a very open relationship,as patient and Dr. I can tell him anything and share both my medical concerns and personal life as well.I actually enjoy visiting with him, and have full trust that he is more than competent, in telling me what's what, and why.
If I have a question? Always gives honest answer.
Dr. Wood is extremely competent, knowledgeable, and personable. He will take time to listen to concerns and answer questions. He is great.
Good rapport with him and advising nurse. Talked about recent trip that he had been to before as well. Addressed my concerns about problems I was having, did exam and offered suggestions on how to cope with or who to seek in order to remedy.
Dr Wood said he would remove the wax from my ear and forgot to do it.
Always concerned about one's problems and finding ways to ease or eliminate them.
Dr. Wood is professional, personal, patient and thorough. I appreciate that he wants my input regarding my care.
Great as usual!
Dr Wood pays careful attention to questions, suggestions, and concerns.
Answered questions I had...got a check-up.... discussed other areas of concern about health....provided a r/x option after discussion....and discussed other medical areas in general. One was availability of the flu shot which I will get in the near future...It was a good and yet quick visit.
Dr Wood is knowledgeable which makes having him as a doctor great because he always takes the time to answer questions. He has always been kind, attentive, and patient.
Asked about my previous health concerns; looked at history of my cholesterol and changed my medication to a generic since my current medication was moved to a higher priced Tier.
I was looking for a primary care doctor and I found the right one. I will continue to use him and recommend him to others.
I love my new Dr. He spends as much time with me as I need. I never feel rushed.
Dr wood and his nurse were very thorough and I was very pleased with the good job I thought they did. They checked all the areas I thought were important to my health
He was thorough and he understood my ongoing needs for medical treatment, which was very important to me.
He listened very carefully and I felt like he cared about me and was very professional and kind.
Great visit as always.
uncertain. went for a physical and didn't get one. the assistant did more for me and asked more questions than the doc. not sure how we miscommunicated about the reason for my appointment....or maybe i thought a yearly phsyical involved more.
I've been a patient of Dr. Wood for several years, and he and I seem to "understand" each other. He has confidence in what I say, and I have confidence that he will not put me through any needless or questionable procedures, processes or questions. I like his "down to business" style, and he gives me an honest "read" of my status.
Dr. Wood has an excellent bedside manner. He asks excellent questions to provide his medical opinion. I've been a PT of Dr. Wood for years and have always appreciated his insights and expertise. BMC could use an update, and appointments are increasingly difficult to get, but the staff is knowledgable and helpful. No need to look further if you're in the Hollywood District.
I like Dr. Wood. He is competent, personable and was helpful in discussing my health issues.
Funny. Helpfull. Seams to be a wise and caring professional.
Great doctor Very helpful
I had somewhat of an emergency and he saw me right away, allowing me to avoid any unnecessary agony. His great thoroughness and diagnostic skills are top notch. Plus, he can be pretty darn funny too!
Very nice concerning and helpful doctor. I'll be back.
Was more curious about my eye disease and not for the reason why I was there. Needed allergy pills. It seemed a bit disorganized. Waited for an hr to be seen. Many things I didn't like. To much to list and irritated that I have to search for a new doc. Left with nothing but frustration and a strong regard never to return.
Dr. Charles was very nice, he helped me with some issues I didn't know I hadn't. I'm thankful he did. Great Dr! .
He's a Professional!
Doctor gave complete, understandable answers to the questions I asked. It's good to see the practice is changing to paperless records as they are easier to search.
Dr. Wood is a great guy. Takes the time to go over your medical issues. I never feel rushed. Would highly recommend.
He has a very easy manner and I felt comfortable in his care.
Dr. Wood was very professional in dealing with the reason I was in his office.
Very engaged, proficient and to the point.
He is always professional. He treats you with kindness, is friendly, and efficient.
The visit with Dr. Charles Wood was perfectly ok, however, we had to wait for more than 30 minutes before we could see him.
Staff and Dr. Wood are very accommodating.
I have been a patient for close to a year. He is great. He listens. Explains things in terms you can understand. Compassionate person. He made the correct career choice.
Dr. Wood is a great physician with a terrific sense of humor. I liked him very much.
He's just fine but the office is way behind times. They need to get charts online and the office space is very old and hard to get around in.
Very informative and clear. Highly recommend.
Very concerned about my condition and took steps to zero in on how to proceed to find the problem
Straight forward and easy to talk to - keeps things in perspective and as a calming manner
I really like everybody at the BMC, but the clinic's processes leave somehing to be desired. Extremely difficult to get to a human bing over the phone, and getting a new prescription with a new pharmacy has not been a pleasant exprience. It would be nice if somebody reviewed and improved the process and systems.
It was a great visit as usual. Dr. Wood truly cares for his patients and give his honest and professional care all the time.
Every time I have seen this doctor my experience has been the same. He takes time, is very professional, and truly seems to care about my health....not just treat my symptoms. Great doctor!!!
Dr. Woods took time to review all my concerns and provide some recommendations to address them. He has a good sense of humor and great bedside manner. He reviewed my biometric screening results and assured me of my health.
excellent treatment by entire staff. Dr Wood was friendly and funny.
Accomplished all objectives.
Excellent, good Doctor...
He was running way too far behind and I already had moved my appt from the day before on Thu 8/29 and move it to Fri 8/30 due to the Dr. being unavailable on Thursday.
Dr. Wood is an excellent Dr. He's easy to talk with and personable. Thanks*

I thought he was great, and I'm happy I switched to him as my PCP.
He's a nice guy. Did what needed to be done with no wasted time.
Very nice and very knowledgeable.
everything was professional and first class. highly recommended.
I like him.He is very straight forward
Listened and didn't try to push me into a lot of testing. Seemed concerned about health rather than disease.
Excellent - he is very knowledgable and very friendly.
Everybody was very friendly and efficient. As a new patient, I felt I received plenty of attention and felt very much at ease with Dr. Wood and his staff.
Dr wood has a woderful relaxed bedside manner that immediately puts me at ease. He is easy to talk to and very professional. I have only once met a doctor that was so easy to visit and made me feel much better when I left.
Every bit a professional; always concerned to get one's medical condition/s in check or corrected. He also looks at your records and asks how conditions from previous visits are doing.
Fast, efficient visit. Check in was much faster than previous visits.
Dr wood was very professional, and showed honest concern. I would like to return to him and would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Wood was very professional and helpful during the appointment.
