Dr. Wright has extensive research experience including studying the effectiveness of novel therapies such as electroceuticals to treat neurological diseases.
Dr. Wright believes it is very important to collaborate with his patients in order to provide the best possible and appropriate care. Healthcare can seem complicated at times, which is why Dr. Wright takes time to clearly explain and provide a rationale for a diagnosis, testing and treatment. He also emphasizes preventive care to stay well and aid in healing from illnesses or injuries. Dr. Wright enjoys traveling, photography, music and martial arts.
