Despite these many accomplishments, perhaps what is most exceptional about Dr. Wood is his gentle, caring nature. He is known by his many patients from around the world for providing each patient with highly personalized care. He especially specializes in the fine details of protocols for Chinese patients, whose responses are in many cases significantly different than those of American and European patients. There is perhaps no fertility specialist in the world who knows more about the optimal ways to treat Asian patients.
