Verified Patient Reviews
I appreciate how comfortable everyone in the office makes us feel, especialy Dr. Wright.
We thought that he was very professional and very respectful. He gave us some good insights.
Great Doctor! Very helpful & intelligent! I'll be back! :)
Good listener, asked relevant questions, made me feel comfortable
Excellent Doctor! I've had many in the past & I can tell a very good one, when I see them! He's highly intelligent, & even personable without invading ones privacy or personal boundaries. He's nice, pleasant, & has a positive type of friendly personality. His smile is comforting, too! He's very knowledgable about medications, dosages, & their side-effects. He doesn't over-prescribe, which is very important to me, since so many doctors these days in America, want to oversell drugs, due to pharmaceutical lobbying & incentives. I've now, had 2 appt's with him & I think "he's a keeper!" ;)
