Dr. Weiser is a exemplary physician. He listens to my concerns and then determines the best way to address my physical problems. When necessary he will make the appropriate referral so I can have specialist care. I trust him implicitly.

Dr Wood and the staff at the Novant Health Ortho Lexington we’re very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Dr Wood took his time to listen to my health issues and carefully diagnosed and suggested treatment options. Very happy with Dr Wood and his team at the facility.

I became a sports medicine physician because I love helping active people move without pain - from high school or recreational athletes to the pros.

I have experience as team doctor for a range of skill levels, including the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League, as well as sports teams at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina Central University and High Point University. I was tournament physician for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship soccer finals in 2019. I am a member of the American Board of Family Medicine and have a certificate of added qualifications in sports medicine.

I am a certified strength and conditioning specialist. This National Strength and Conditioning Association certification means I can design and evaluate strength and conditioning programs for your specific sport, position and primary training goal. This includes sprint training for track and field, resistance training for body building/gaining muscle mass and aerobic endurance training for cyclists and distance runners.

While completing my medical training, I received several awards. They include the 2019 Society of Teachers of Family Medicine's Resident Teacher Award, the Ossur Americas Fellowship scholarship from the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, and the McGraw Hill Book Award for academic excellence in medical school. I am a member of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.

I have participated in clinical trials investigating ultrasound-guided injections in the treatment of frozen shoulder and written papers on concussion evaluation/diagnostics and common medical concerns of female athletes. I have also published papers on the effectiveness of knee arthroscopy versus nonsurgical treatment of nontraumatic meniscus tears and on the use of the ultrasound in treating chronic tendon damage.

My approach to healthcare is patient-centered. I use my medical knowledge to supplement your knowledge about your specific condition so that we can make informed decisions together. My focus is helping you obtain the highest quality, most affordable care possible.

My wife, Morgan, and I welcomed a daughter, Charlie, in 2020. We are members of Emmanuel Church of Winston-Salem. We enjoy praying together, studying the Bible, taking walks, listening to music, dancing in the kitchen and enjoying all types of food.

As a graduate of the University of Georgia, I am a devout Bulldogs fan. Since completing my training in sports medicine at UNC Chapel Hill, I have become a big fan of the Tar Heels, too.

Finally, I enjoy deep-sea fishing and once reeled in a 5-foot bull shark in the Gulf of Mexico.
