Dr. Mark S Wright has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Dr. Wright is good with all ages and very up to date with medications for each condition. I took my daughter to him with medication management and he did way more than that. He was an advocate for my daughter when the insurance wouldn't pay for her medication because of her age. I would trust the word of this Dr. over any other Dr. or counselor. I highly recommend him. Any time I had a question or concern I could call him and he would call me right back.
I would not recommend Dr. Wright he didn't seem to care at all or be interested in me. He barely made eye contact and just wrote notes and hardly spoke and never talks about medication side effects he just seems to want to throw meds at you. He acts like he can't stand being in the room with you. I don't like people who can't make eye contact especially professionals. He is blunt but I don't mind bluntness what I do mine is an unpredictable snooty attitude especially concerning something like mental health. I'll be going elsewhere. He seems cold and uncaring.
Over the past twenty years, I have seen six psychiatrists. Dr. Wright is the best, hands down. He is intelligent, insightful and courteous. I leave every appointment with exactly what I need to continue treating chronic depression. I notice that some reviewers find him to be abrupt. I think a better description would be SMART and EFFICIENT. He knows how to listen and draw conclusions about what treatment is needed. As a busy professional, I appreciate that when I have a fifteen minute appointment, I can show up three minutes before my appointment time and be in and out of his office in 30 minutes, including checking in, paying and making my next appointment. He's also great with returning emergency calls and explaining his judgments. It's true that he doesn't chat extensively, but that discipline allows him to be on time for his next appointment. I would also like to compliment his office staff, who are equally consistent, kind and helpful.
