All-around great experience. Dr. Wright was straightforward with explaining the problem and his treatment plan. Would certainly recommend to others.

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.

Dr. Wright was very concerned about me and my husbands knee pain and explained every step of the treatment, he's also the best at giving knee injections.

I LOVE *Dr. Wright! He made me feel very comfortable during a time that I could have completely freaked. I trusted him completely and he made me feel like a very important patient.
