I came to see this doctor only to find out that I haven't been breathing right...I've seen a lot of ent doctors and this is the first one that has ever told me this....when he knocked on my door opened it and didn't say a word...stood with his back turned toward the room and talked with the nurse that was setting at the desk....only to talk with her for about 3-4 min.....This to me was rude.....not counting him telling me I wasn't breathing right and telling me with a smirk.....


The care this person has received from Baptist by everyone has been outstanding, all the doctors I have encountered are great, very friendly helpful, the support staff are GREAT, you are very lucky to have each and everyone of them that I have encountered.




Dr. Wright was friendly, very professional and put me at ease about my exam and the problem for which I was referred.


Great Doctor who cares about his patients.


all good


Well pleased with *Dr. Wright. He gave us more info. in 15 min. than the dr. in WV did in 6 mo.


Dr Wright is Excellent


*Dr. Wright Jr. and his staff are the best!!


Very good. I talked to my heart wife & she went to him.


Seemed genuinely concerned about my health and eager to help me feel better. Did great making everything abt my condition & treatment clear & understandable.


Super - plus -


very good visit.


*Dr. Wright is amazing. Been going to him since 2007.


My first visit with Dr Wright. He made me feel very comfortable & took time to explain everything. I felt very confident with his skills. He was very friendly & professional. Could not be more pleased with my visit.


Dr. Wright was very reassuring and thorough.


I felt that *Dr. Wright could have been more patience and under standing of my husband, he is a stroke victim and needs extra attention just so he can understand the problem at hand.


Dr. Wright is always very thorough. He is a wonderful doctor.


The video scope procedure included numbing my nose and I should have asked for an explanation first - or had the Doctor or Nurse walk through the procedure. I already knew that holding a hand helped me relax and asked for help. I had never seen a video of my windpipe before and Dr Wright spent a lot of time trying to find comparison pictures for me to help me understand my condition.


Excellent doctor and experience.


*Dr. Wright always explains my current situation then includes me in options for treatment.


The medications prescribed seem to help. I'm thankful!


I would recommend him to anyone.


Have already recommended this provider to friend with similar problem
