Dr. Wright and the staff with ONE have been great to work with. Everyone has been helpful and very pleasant. Anytime you have surgery it is a traumatic experience, but Dr. Wright and his staff made it me feel comfortable and in capable care.

This is the most awesome doctor we have ever been to. If you want courteous, timely care with accurate diagnosis, call his office! It was an all-inclusive trip with exam, x-rays, diagnosis, and treatment in one appointment. The staff is kind and punctual. We felt like wecould get on my with our lives. It was well worth the three hour round-trip drive! Thank you Dr. Wright for being so easy to talk to and for your continued positive attitude! Awesome staff & doctor! David &Cathy Burlew

I like going to Dr. Wright because he always greets you with a smile on his face and a firm handshake. I find him to be a very caring doctor. He gives you all of his attention in caring for the issue at hand. He has given me good advice on the medical situations I have had.

Excellent care and understanding from the start! Dr. Wright was very thorough and was patient in listening to what I had to say. The staff were all very friendly.
Dr. Wright has always and will always continue to be my "go to" ortho doctor. Jeff, and the remainder of his care team cannot be faulted in any way; always so cordial yet professional. Dr. Wright's knowledge, abilities, talents, and genuine empathy with his patients are above and beyond the term "excellent." I never hesitate to acknowledge my admiration for him whenever the occasion arises!! And yes, I've recommended him numerous times!
in Ft Wayne, IN |
I felt very confident in Dr. Wright's determination that I needed a total shoulder replacement. I would recommend him to anyone who has shoulder problems. His manner is calm and reassuring. It was so thoughtful of him to give me a fruit basket as I left the hospital after surgery. And he's a snazzy dresser!
