Dr. Wright is an excellent doctor. I would highly him and his services!
I feel that Dr. Wright is a fine Dr and highly acclaimed in his field. It was a bit more work getting to see him personally than I was expecting. I would have liked to have seen him after the surgery but all that seemed to be handled by his associates. So far the surgery feels successful and I'm sure all will end fine. The main reason I chose Dr Wright was my GP, who I trust, recommended him. Dr Wrigh's office support staff is fantastic.

Did not examine me, said there was no way I had craniocervical instability. But I wound up later being diagnosed by another doctor who said I indeed had a very severe case of it and now after a successful surgery am doing much better. Dr Wright spent a maximum of 2 minutes with me, essentially called me a liar in his report, and walked out on me while I was crying.

While I was a bit out of on my second consultation that Dr. Wright seemed to not remember me our to have reviewed my file before I came back (thinking I already had surgery when I had tried to call his assistant a month earlier to discuss canceling physical therapy and go straight to suffer only to have her tell me no and not even suggest taking to Dr Wright), the actual surgery and his bedside manner before and after we're Awesome enough for me not to care about what happened before.
