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.
