Is a huge disappointment. His office doesn't return calls or seem to care about the health or welfare of his patients. A patient relies on their doctor to be there when they need them, not ignore them or tell their patient that they have no appointment openings until 2 weeks out when the patient is sick. You've been dumped Dr. Wood, and I've chosen another doctor who cares.

On average I travel past doc woods and that doctors office in Copperhill and see the same people sitting out front waiting on pain meds.

Sorry, no pain junkie here. But I'm starting to hear stories that he's easy about giv'in 'em out. When I get the flu or any kind of cold, I get it bad and the only thing that helps me to get well is usually antibiotics. I don't get sick often, but when I do, it's full blown and over the counter meds just don't help me. You'd think that your primary would care enough to get you in and see you real quick and give you something to get over it. I can't afford to be out of work for 10 days.

It's a real shame how people are so quick to judge you on your postings - just wanted to see if anyone else had any problems with this doctor.

Who are the Tidmans? Are they a family practice?

Wood is known for giving out pain medicines and if my understanding is correct, he isn't allowed to practice medicine at either Fannin or Basin hospitals.

The Tidmans really seem like a more legit version of Dr. Wood. If I were you, I'd basically not see anyone out of that office unless your seeing Raymond. His wife kept my mother in law high on all sorts of crap for several years.

I am appalled by the comments about doctor Frank Wood. He has been my families doctor for many years now and he is not a "pain pills" doctor. He knows my family when we go in and if one of us is not there he makes it a point to ask about them. Only a pain pill junkie would make a comment like that about him. I have never had a problem getting in when I needed to see him. If you have a problem with him then don't see him but do not bash someone simply because you heard something you think is good gossip that you feel the need to spread!

This guy is an idiot. Dr. Wood is the only M.D. in the area with a real education and quality practice. Dr. Wood is the best doctor in North GA and does not deserve criticisim and lies like this. Maybe Peanut should stop driving around and get a damn job.

Overuse or improper use of certain pain medications can lead to addiction. Many pain medications have now become "street drugs" and are used by addicts in place of more expensive heroin and cocaine. While the use of pain medication for actual pain under care of a careful doctor can be helpful...especially for terminal illnesses there is too much friviliusm use and some doctors have become little more than drug peddlers. If you doubt that you might think about the doctor in Copperhill who got busted and is facing trial. Maybe you have a justified need and maybe you are just using as a method to "tune out" of a world and problems you are having a hard time facing. Don't know you so can't judge if there is real need in your case but overuse has become far too common and is damaging society.
