Dr. Damaris Wright has the following 2 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- Pediatric Cardiology
Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

This doctor was recommended to our family by a referring physician at the hospital. After waiting for over a month for an appt, we waited four hours NOT to get to see the doctor in her practice. Instead, she sent a PA to speak with us about our child. No apologies about the wait. They left us for almost two hours alone in the room between staff check-ins. This office felt very much as if it was herding cattle rather than helping anyone, and the clerks were on the sketchy side. (I was uneasy about leaving them with my social security number.) Making matters worse, the second opinion I received was COMPLETELY different from what Wright's office suggested just weeks earlier. Thus, I had to get a THIRD opinion, which was in line with the findings of my second cardiologist's. Weeks later, I thought the Wright circus was over, but was wrong. They completely wrecked the billing to my insurance company by overcharging much more than either cardiologist we saw afterward! The reasonable and customary overcharge was 400 dollars more than what had been discussed, and we're stuck paying this, of course. There are other cardiologists I'd see first in this network most certainly.
My daughter has seen Dr. Wright since she was 2 weeks old (now 12 years old) and I would never want her to see anyone else. The staff is super professional, efficient and caring. Dr. Wright explains very technical information in a way that is easy for worried, stressed and anxious parents to understand. And she is TERRIFIC with the kids. I have nothing but great things to say about her and her office.
