I would highly recommend Meridian Surgery Center. The staff are all so kind and informative. I had my gallbladder removed. DR Wright was very kind and explained the procedure. My scars are minimal. Pain was under control without all drugs. I feel they were all part of my team to make my surgery a success. I am thankful my DR referred me to them. The whole staff is wonderful. They care about their patients. I thank you all.

I was very worried about my first visit with Dr.Wright because I had already been to another doctor and had had a bad experience and was confused. As soon as I spoke to him I knew I had come to the right place. He was very understanding and knowledgeable about my situation. I will recommend him to any and everyone who is looking for a caring provider.
