Patient Comments (1)
in Springfield, MO |
I have been seeing Dr. Bright for over a year & each appointment has been pleasant. He doesn't rush me through our appointments & always takes the time to listen to me & how I'm feeling. I feel Dr. Bright truly cares about me as a patient. Also, for the first 10 months I was seeing him I didn't have insurance, & had to pay completely out of pocket The first appointment, I believe was $500, & they were nice enough to let me put only $50 down & make payments. He has helped me in every way he can.
