My appointment with Dr Wright was excellent. Dr Wright explains everything and answered any questions or concerns that I had. He makes you feel very comfortable. I had injections in both needs that went perfectly and provided relief almost immediately. I highly recommend Dr Wright and all of the staff at Vanderbilt Orthopedics.
