As mentioned, Dr Wright spent time with me, recognized that I wanted to understand my condition and therefore explained it in depth. He answered my questions fully. He engenders confidence as a healthcare provider.


Good experience - !!!!


*Dr. Wright is a professional, friendly, caring doctor and I value his opinion & care.




Told me what was wrong and the options that could be used to correct the problem.


All good.


*Dr. Wright & intern. #2. Excellent!


Dr. Wright seems highly competent but is consistently late, and then our meetings are usually somewhat rushed.


I found *Dr. Wright to be an excellent provider. The examination he gave me was painless, quick, and efficient. I though he was caring, kind, friendly, and professional. I appreciate his aid and expertise!


Pleased with the doctors checkup


No problems.


Good experience.


Great from every aspect


As a Sixty year old patient I had never been so afraid in my life, was (terrified) Dr Wright nurse eased my fear so much. I wish I could send her a personal card to thank her. And Dr Wright was so good he came behind her and eased my fear even more. the procedure in which I had never had before had me so nervous that my BP was extremely high. After all was over so fast and quickly, Doctor Wright asked me with a smile and you been all worried about this for how long??? I had to laugh!!!!! I thought my procedure was going to be like Joan Rivers, not at all and all I have ever seen working at the hospital was patient getting NG tubes...just painful looking and scary.. THANK YOU DOCTOR WRIGHT FOR ELPING ME WITH THAT FEAR!!!!!!!




Very good - #8. 45 min. #9. Very nice & good.


The doctor was very thorough and seemed genuinely concerned with my problem. His diagnosis has proven to be accurate and I would highly recommend him in this field .


Dr. Wright has always kept me very well informed about my medical situation's as well as the surgery's he done on my vocal cord's.




Although this was my first time seeing this provider, I was extremely impressed by his knowledge of my condition and the way in which he explained things to me. I was extremely pleased with the visit as well as the diagnosis and the care I received from this provider.


dr wright has really helped me. he is the greatest!!


Recovery from procedure took longer than projected & struggled w/pain management.


My particular problem (in this case) has been around for over 50 years and Dr. Wright has found enough evidence to realize that this is not my imagination. The big question is can it be repaired and at present, that remains to be determined.


I like Dr. Wright.


The entire staff at this office are very friendly and helpful.


He gave me a clear and informative of my condition and what to do to stay on the correct course of healing.


I am a PhD candidate....understanding medical terminology was not THE problem. Except for the fact that MY throat was the matter at hand, I might as well have been out of the room.....or a fly on the wall. ????


He described a problem which caused some anxiety without much explanation of what it might be or treatment of


Dr Wright has excellent "bed side manners", and really puts the patient at ease.


very good
