Gregory A. Wood, M.D. is a clinical assistant professor in the Division of Cardiology at the University of Washington. Dr. Wood is board-certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease. He has special interest in heart failure with focus on advanced therapies including heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory support. His clinical interests include general cardiology, advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.
Dr. Wood understands a diagnosis of heart failure, particularly in the end stages of the disease process, can be stressful and, at times, overwhelming for both patients and their families. Therefore, he believes it is important to empower patients to become active participants in their care through emotional support and education, so they can make informed decisions along the way.
When away from medicine, Dr. Woods enjoys cycling, hiking, cooking and spending time with his family.
