I went there after suffering with pain and heaviness in my legs for two years. Spoke with Dr. Wright he said that I had some vein problems but he could fix them. Now after my procedures my legs are feeling great and pain free. Thanks to Dr. Wright.

Dr. Wright makes you feel very comfortable. I have had 4 EVLTs done so far and will have the fifth amd hopefully final one next week. The procedure takes maybe 15 minutes and minimal pain. The improvement of my leg pain and swelling is phenominal. I am so thankful for the procedure and this office.
