Meet Cristina Wood, MD

My specialty is anesthesiology with focus on high risk pregnancies. My goal is to make my patients comfortable by providing complete anesthesia care. Open communication and collaboration are very important to me and I believe that listening first to all questions and concerns creates a better patient doctor relationship. I have always been passionate about keeping patients comfortable and creating a warm safe environment for patients to heal.

“I feel honored to be a part of a labor or C-section – This may be the biggest day of their life.”

  Dr. Cristina Wood
