Over the years that *Dr. Wright has treated me, I have come to regard him as my friend. I trust and respect him with my life. I'm so grateful to have him treat my throat issues.


No explanations were needed. I've been doing this for 20 years. They did what they needed to do and they are always awesome. It only takes a minute or two and I don't expect them to sit there and go through all of this with me. I just want my injection and to get on with my day.


I trust Dr Wright and have very high confidence in his expertise and skills.


very good




Fantastic care by *Dr. Wright.


Dr Wright is a very caring and talks to you in such a way that you understand him. He does not use words to describe your situation that leaves you dumbfounded or wondering what he said. He know exactly what to say and how to explain it to you and when examining you his manners are of a gentleman respectful and courteous. I talk highly of Dr Wright to my family here and overseas, my friends and people I work with.

I always recommend Dr Wright to others


Very professional, very courteous, very friendly, very knowledgeable.


I have complete trust in Dr. Wright.


I have recommended several people to this provider and they have had good experiences as well.


Dr. Wright was so very kind and reassuring. He was very informative discussing my concerns, explaining the what and why of my condition. We discussed the alternatives and treatments and he shared what he was going to do and not do and the reasons. He also gave me the opportunity to weigh in and decide, of course I agreed with him.


I am very grateful for Dr Wright and his staff at WF


I've been getting the injections for several years, and there is usually little or no need for much discussion.


very good


Dr. Wright was directly in the exam room and as usual, listen to me throughly. He discussed my medicines and my improvements and was very caring as usual!!! I would recommend him to anyone I knew that was having similar problems!!!


I live in Asheville which is 2 hours away. When Dr. Wright informed me I would need to have a surgical procedure done in August, I explained how difficult the 2 hour trip would be, he agreed to have me admitted overnight after the surgery. He was very understanding and cared greatly about my situation.


He is an excellent doctor. I have just had problems coughing after spending two weeks in ICU and having a trak most of the time.


I have recommended this provider to friends and co-worker. He is an awesome doctor with awesome manners, very caring.

I live in Az during the winter so my most current treatment need came while I was in Az.I respect Dr Wright so much that I flew back to NC to get the needed treatment from him.And this time he was more concerned about cancer risk so he did biopsy and explained various options depending on test results.This is pretty scary to me but Dr Wright handled it in way that was reassuring there is a plan no matter what.
