Barton S. Wood, M.D.

“As a child I loved watching MASH on TV, to see the dedication to saving lives in all sorts of situations.  I decided I wanted to be a doctor and never lost the desire.   Being a doctor is unlike any other career I could ever imagine.  God has provided me with the desire and the faith to help people and provided me with the skills necessary.   My passion for performing surgery in the least invasive manner has led me to a more minimally invasive and robotic practice.   I am thankful to be given the opportunity to work with a group of dedicated physicians who strive to do their very best in helping patients.”
