Specialties

Dr. James R Wright III has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Good doctor who asks the right questions.

Dr. Wright is a solid psychiatrist who wants to help his patients whether or not that means they need medication. A lot of psychiatrists only see medication as the solution. Not the case with Dr. Wright who seeks genuine solutions for long term recovery.

He fell asleep & staff is RUDE.

He fell asleep while I was talking to him. I feel like he never listened to me because his eyes wouldn't meet mine. He was looking my way but I had to repeat things several times. The staff-disorganized, forgot to answer faxes from my pharmacy which led me to going to the ER. They NEVER answer the phone. They have been rude to my husband and I by informing us that if we didn't pay a 25.00 balance that my appt would be canceled, I would be fired as a patient & my account would go to their collection agency. Wow! My husband called on the weekend and his answering service tried contacting Dr. Wright and he never returned any of my calls. I was suicidal and in a dark place. Beware. I felt like a number in the last couple of years.

DO NOT GO!! Nurse Practitioner is ONLY a RN! STAFF IS RUDE!

Ive been a patient for 2 years. I was seeing Jeanete who represented herself as a nurse practitioner. After many visits & always feeling like she would throw medication at me, I did some research. She's not even a nurse practitioner as her cards, door & staff says she is. THIS IS AGAINST THE LAW to misrepresent herself! I saw other patient charts laying around. Front desk staff named Tanya, should be fired. She was rude to me several times I called. She refused my refill & I had an appt within the week. I had major withdrawals and almost took a handful of pills because I didn't want to live once I started feeling the withdrawal of NOT having my medication. jeanete gave me her cell # but would never respond to my texts.She spent our appts cussing and complaining about the office staff. All of their old staff is gone and they were the ones who were caring. The new staff is awful. I started with the doctor & he was the most unresponsive man I've ever met. DO NOT GO!
