Patient Comments (3)
in Pittsburgh, PA |
Vonda Wright performed my ACL reconstruction surgery. During my first visit, she and her resident (John I believe) showed much concern for my injury, answered all of my questions, and explained to me all of the complications of my injury and how the surgery would be performed. Follow-up visits were also helpful, but they were delayed 1-2 hours for one of my visits, which would have been unpleasant if I hadn't brought a book. Other visits were fine.

Dr. Wright was condescending and dismissive. She missed a significant issue which was a ruptured gluteus medius tendon, leading to additional months of pain and therapy without improvement. Her concern for my outcome seemed to be none of her concern. Had she listened to me and assessed me, or even listened to my symptoms and limitations, she should have been able to connect the dots and render an appropriate diagnosis.

Dr. Wright comes highly recommended and was very pleasant and seemed knowledgeable. I was not overly enthused with her resident, he came across rather arrogant and condescending. I've come to expect that from some physicians over the years but was disappointed to have to deal with it from a resident. In the spirit of fairness, Dr. Wright's opinion on my situation wasn't what I wanted to hear but she may be correct. I will likely seek a second opinion to confirm her opinion. We'll see.
