I have received nothing but the best of care from Dr. Wrightson and his staff. He takes the time to listen and explain and I have never felt rushed during appointments. With his care I have been able to continue working and functioning in life while dealing with pain. Normally I would not bother to write to a review website unless I was extremely unhappy with something or exceptionally pleased. As a patient I expect a certain level of care from physicians that all to often is not received and I would not write a review just to say he is a good Dr. and I am happy with the care he provides, but during my last appointment I mentioned that I was having pain in my leg (varicose veins) that I had never experienced before. Dr. Wrightson wanted me to go have a ultrasound to check for clots ASAP. When I arrived at the hospital there was a problem with the order. I called his office and they immediately called the hospital and resolved the problem. After the testing was completed Dr. Wrightson personally called me with the results and provided guidance for care. Normally after my PCP orders tests someone from the office calls days later with the results or I have to call the office to make inquires. To actually have the Dr. call me with the results within a hour after the tests were completed really impressed me! Kudos to Dr. Wrightson and his excellent staff!
This operation uses a prescription service that charged my insurer 6X what the local CVS charges., $1738 vs $288. Amamda told me that practice "make a lot of money, and I mean alot'' from a kick back they receive. I was told to use it or be "terminated immediately". So much for medical ethics Dr. Dollar wins here
