Dr. Gregory 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.

Dr. Wright has known me since the day I was born. He has been a big part of my life and has helped me grow up having a normal childhood. I'm one of the lucky people who started only needing a check every 3 years after a procedure as a very young child and I always looked forward to seeing him. Now in adulthood I need to start looking for a new Doctor and can't imagine finding one better, let alone just as good.
We began with Dr. Wright when our daughter was only 2 weeks old. She is now 5 and doing great, thanks to Dr. Wright and the Children's Heart Clinic. Dr. Wright embodies that rare breed of Dr. who is tops professionally but also very caring and concerned. He was always available to answer my MANY questions.
