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


This dr is the worst of dr stereotypes: hurried, not listening to patient, showing little real concern.


MD reassured me during each step of the scope test he administered - I had had same test years ago somewhere else with a very bad experience, so I was worried. Dr Wright was very reassuring and the test was a very good experience. He was very good.


Dr Wright is an excellent physician.


Everything was excellent.


This patient hates to use the computer so my (ever-so-wonderful) wife is doing this, knowing how I feel about the whole staff. We had everyone of them for "dinner".


Very good.


I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Wright!


Staff liked the dr. and were courteous to each other.


Everything is, great.




Dr Wright is engaging and takes plenty of time with me.


Doctor gave quick results of exam and his recommendation. Appeared to be in a hurry.


Dr. Wright was wonderful in every way! Extremely professional.


I liked the very conservative way in which my care was handled and I appreciated a short visit that was to the point.


Dr Wright even let me record my vocal cords. Excellent care and patience


Class operation


Talked with me about choices and always let me decide what I wanted to do. Also, have already recommended person who is coming now to my provider, and very pleased with their results.


He did not recommend any medication for my condition but rather voice therapy. I was given three options for how to manage my voice problem and felt that Dr. Wright would have agreed with whichever choice that I made. As it turned out I chose the method that he felt was most appropriate.


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.
