David C. Hood, MD

Hood“I was excited to learn at the beginning of my journey into the field of medicine that the word for “doctor” actually derives from the Latin word for teacher. As a doctor specializing in ear, nose, and throat disorders, I feel privileged to have the opportunity to teach and inform patients about their condition. Patients can rely on my diligence, perseverance, and patience to offer them the best course of medical or surgical therapy tailored to their unique needs. I enjoy spending quality time with my patients to answer their questions and thereby develop an understanding and trust about the problem we face together. I wholeheartedly believe in compassionate, empathetic and knowledgeable care, and treat patients as I would my friends or family. I carry this belief down from my father and grandfather who both served the Tampa Bay area as physicians.”
