I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THE WRIGHT EYE CENTER! I could not tell you whether or not Dr Wright is a good Doctor or not but I can tell you his staff is the rudest and most unprofessional ill tempered bunch of folks I have ever had the dis-pleasure of meeting. Dr Wright was nice but some of his staff well there's not room to wright all the things I care to express.

1. 11 days before the surgery date, it was rescheduled. Problem for the person providing a ride. 2. Excessive paper work and forms. One form you had to write out in long hand the statement. 3. Prescribed medicine that was not covered by my insurance (or most insurance). Cost was $200. The accepted generic was also not covered by insurance ($129). No flexibilty in using the approved prescriptions offered by the insurance. 4. In general, rigid and difficult to deal with. Canceled surgery.
