Patient Comments (1)
in Wasilla, AK |
Dr Wright has done necessary surgery on me twice. I first had debilitating neck, head , And arms. Since that neck surgery in 2008- I have not had a single headache. Recently, I woke up with severe pain and weakness in my leg, an urgent MRI showed a slipped disc that could have left my leg useless without DR Wrights surgery. I highly recommend him. I am also a health care professional.
