Horrible doctor, mean and does not care.
in Guthrie, OK |
He has performed three surgeries in my neck and all were a total success. He also operated on my lower spine and it also had fantastic results. He is very straight forward with his explanation of what he sees on the x-rays and what he can do. I have always had better results than he expected. He doesn't have time for BS, he tells it like it is, which is the way I like it.
in Oklahoma City, OK |
I was sent to Dr. Wright for a second opinion. I found him to be quite thorough when explaining my options to me. I chose to have surgery and was very pleased with the results. I am fixed and pain free. I highly recommend this surgeon. HE WILL FIX YOUR PROBLEMS!!!!!!
in Tulsa, OK |
My 10 year old son was seen by Dr. Wright for a broken wrist. He came in didn't introduce himself, was very rude,and made me feel like a fool! He NO SHOWED my son on surgery morning. We waited 4 hours when the nurse told us she can't find him or get a hold of him on his cell. Thank God they assigned my son a wonderful surgeon Dr. Wheeler!! He was the absolute best!! We never heard from Dr. Wright and I wouldn't recommend him for he is very unprofessional and RUDE!

My name is Lorrie chaney and Dr. Wright was my surgeon 20 years ago today. He was there all the time checking on me and awesome bed side manners. I will never forget you. Thank you my Friend.

Dr wright is very unprofessional. If a person is having CRONIC pain he is not the one to help.He's arrogant with no bed side managers. I'm so blessed I have found a spine surgeon that really cares about my health and not the $.There is no way I would let this man cut into my back. If you have a choice to see Dr Wright please look elsewhere.There are real surgeon out there with empathy and care about your wellbeing. I DO NOT RECOMMEND DR WRIGHT
in Newcastle, OK |
i didn't get a chance to see the Dr. but the staff are rude and lazy. we wait close to 45min get shuffled to the back everyone is in a big hurry. he is seen by a nurse practitioner who looks at his xrays and says that they will have to schedule a mri. hurried us out of there not even giving us helpful tips about how to manage his pain. a week later they call to say his mri appt is another week later and after that they will have to schedule another appt to fix the problem what a joke.
in Edmond, OK |
This was the worst doctor visit I have ever been to. The doctor walked in, didn't introduce himself didn't take the time to listen to what my problem was he just looked at an MRI that was 6 months old and said I have a bad back and I will have to deal with it. He said just take pain meds and stay off work until it's better. This isn't the answer. I will not ever recommend this doctor. I thought his PA was good but when she came in and said have we seen you before? really? Read your chart.
Oklahoma City, OK |
Dr. Wright was okay, his staff is awful. His head nurse is very rude. Came into the room without introducing herself. Went over MRI results and said level 2/3 fusion surgery would be necessary.When husband asked her if she was the doctor, she said no, but she knows what she's talking about.She got very upset when we asked to see doc.Decided to go with epidural, they were to schedule procedure, & never got back to me on appt even though I called 3 times & insurance apprvd. I went to new doc
in Riverside, CA |
Dr. Wright is extremely knowledgeable and took his time to explain the procedure in detail. Dr. Wright listened to all my concerns and addressed each question in great detail to my extreme satisfaction. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of an Orthopedic Surgeon!
in Yukon, OK |
Very informative on all types of ways medical procedure could be done. Appreciated him for taking time to explain the details of the procedure.
