Dr. Dempsey Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dempsey Jr "We at The Wright Center are above all HEALERS! We care for you as an individual, that means caring for you physically, behaviorally and spiritually. We use the analogy of the three legged stool. When one leg weakens he lean hard on the other two until we can make repairs. An important aspect of this care is prevention. We need to identify where your weakness might be and work to strengthen that foundation in wellness. We will help you to keep that stool upright. We take a team approach in caring for you. Often you will see different ancillary members of our team during your visit. We also are a teaching practice where we not only care for you but also train your future physicians. I look forward to meeting and caring for you and your family."

The whole practice is a joke especially Dr . Dempsey and his staff. They try to bill you for exams they never do there so watch your insurance. Good luck getting an antibiotic from this clown. Plenty of other Drs, avoid Dempsey at all costs.
