Would not recommend after the way I was treated today. Dr Wright became upset when I told him my foot still hurt. He threw his glasses and his scalpel on the counter and walked out.

Dr. Wright is okay for the easy stuff, but I have a similar story to MAJ shown in these reviews. I went in to have a bone spur removed on the outside of my foot but he ended up removing the entire knuckle which left a void. To make a long story short, I after 3 weeks, I ended up in the hospital with a major bone and foot infection. I will be on strong antibiotics fed through a pick line for 6 weeks after spending an entire week in the hospital. I had to have another surgery for bone removal.

I would recommend Dr. Wright and his staff to anyone. Everyone that I encountered was great, wait time was minimal. Dr. Wright and the nurses explained everything in great detail. Was seen and treated for plantar fasciitis. I have had several places injected before and was honestly dreading getting my foot injected, the procedure was painless... Don't hesitate to go see Dr. Wright.

Called to have ingrown toe nail removed. Was going to be a 2 week wait due to training in a new computer system. They called me back within 5 minutes of having a cancellation and got in right away. Everything went flawless and could not have asked for a better experience. Great Job!!!

He did surgery to remove a spur on the outside of my wife's little toe. He butchered her toe and removed the whole little toe joint and left a sharp bone. He claimed he only removed the spur and lied about it for two years and kept saying it should be fine, it's just her, it's just inflammation and giving her injections on office visits and even did an in the office surgery to clip a leader because her toe was curling under. Amazing thing is you only have two years to sue for malpractice.

I found Dr. Wright to be an awesome doctor but his support staff leaves a lot to be desired. They were very condescending very insulted and made me choose to go to another podiatrist. I would not recommend going there because you interact with the support staff more than you interact with the doctor. And I will never recommend to a friend to go to that Doctor only because of the support staff not because of the doctor.
