Friendly staff, short wait time.

Virtual Visit / Telemedicine

The telehealth connection was kinda lousy-I could see him, but I couldn’t get volume, and I don’t know which end that issue was on. He ended up just calling, which was fine, as it was a medication we had discussed in my last office visit. In spite of this issue, Dr Wright was great! He has a sense of humor, but he gets right to the point, not blowing smoke up your skirt, so to speak. He is an asset to the practice.

Mammogram

Colposcopy

Dr. WRIGHT was wonderful as always & I am always highly satisfied once I actually get in to see him. On this most recent appt. I was told that he would be in very soon but instead sat on the exam table (which is not particularly comfortable) for 70 minutes (with a sheet covering) before seeing him. During that time no one walked in to at least let me know that he would be delayed. Finally, I had to stand at the door with the sheet wrapped around me & flag someone down to use the restroom. Just a little courtesy from the staff would have been so appreciated.
