Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bright "I enjoy taking the time to sit down with each patient (and family members, if possible) and really listen to their problems and concerns. My patient's condition is then explained in great detail, frequently with the use of models and/or handouts. I then allow my patient to select from a long list of possible treatments, thus enabling them to select which ones might best meet their particular needs. I have found that, by far, the majority of patients are managed conservatively without surgery. However, if surgery is indeed the best option, then it is clearly recommended (but not insisted upon). I specialize in computer assisted, minimally invasive joint replacements (including hips, both partial and total knees, and shoulders), arthroscopic surgery, cartilage transplants, rotator cuff repair, hand surgery, neck and back pain, and fracture repair. I truly enjoy being an orthopaedic surgeon, and look forward to continuing to serve you."

Patient Comments (4)

in Sarasota FL
Dr Bright has a unique personality which should not be misunderstood to be less than compassionate and keenly in tune to the patient and a supportive family's needs. He is straight to the point which some may be confused by. When needing more information before making a decision for our elderly...more

Spastic, rude insurance doctor that doesn't seem to care about his patients.

Although this patient did NOT contact me about their review, I suspect that their appointment was mandated by their insurance company due to some discrepancy in their insurance claim, and is likely that they did not agree with my opinion either. I am always honest and fair in my opinion, but obviously I cannot please everyone despite my best attempts.
