I don't recommend this doctor to anyone. My daughter went to him with serious symptoms for which he told her, "Sounds like an infection or chronic disease"...did absolutely NO testing. sent her home and said " If your symptoms change or get worse in the next 2 weeks call me." She got worse, called 3 separate times on 3 separate days with NO return call. If it weren't for the fact that I am a nurse and knew that her symptoms were severe enough, my daughter may be in the hospital or worse.
Although his bedside manners were sufficient, I am completely unimpressed with his follow through in the care of my family member. A botched routine- preventative measure turned horrid. Dr. Wright recommended hospitalization, gave us directions, but when we arrived at the hospital, no contact arrangements were made. If I/we could do this all over again, a different doctor would have been requested.

My family has been seeing Dr. Wright for several years. He has always patiently listened to our concerns and provided great treatment. My son recently had a procedure by Dr. Wright after he was admitted to the hospital in an emergency situation. He provided excellent care and was very comforting in a scary situation. Other professionals at the hospital said, "he is the best." I agree. I highly recommend him.

He did not diagnose my colon ailment and did not seem to listen or care about my symptoms I was describing to him. He kept asking me to come back a week later each time with no answer. I became sicker and sicker. I finally went to a local emergency room who diagnosed me within 10 mins and immediately hospitalized me where I received proper treatment. When I called his office to tell him, he and his staff were highly defensive. If I had not gone to the ER, I would have died from my ailment.

I feel that Dr. Wright is a highly competent professional in his area of expertise. He took the time to really listen and ask pertinent questions. I am extremely happy with my outcome. I would highly recommend this wonderful doctor to my friends and family.

He made up his mind early in the process about what was causing my issues: longterm effects from food poisoning. Yet, I never had food poisoning.
