I began seeing Dr. Wright when he only had an office in Greenville. I've had three procedures by him and the last two experiences at his office were unacceptable. All he did was type on his laptop with his back to me and print out a sheet telling me if I 'got rid of my stress' then I wouldn't have stomach issues. I've tried to get medical records multiple times (after being on hold for long periods). Once was told it would take 3 days, called and now it's 2 weeks. Never again.
This "doctor" was not helpful at all he didn't read my chart at all, asked me the same question 4 times, and just suggested something that must be wrong with me! I WILL NOT be returning to his office, I could of found out what was wrong with myself by looking online, and wouldn't had to leave my house or pay someone who doesn't know what they are doing! This is the second worse " doctor" I've ever went to in my life! If you are recommended to this office DON'T GO! I had to give a star, if I could give them all no stars I would!
I am a RN who needed a doctors advice and prescription ability to help me with my current problem. While in the room the Dr. wright sat at his computer going through my chart. After asking about my symptoms he then proceeded to look through information on his computer. He then listened to my lungs and stomach and once agin proceeded to look through his computer for another 5 minutes without saying one word to me. After looking at his computer he decided to tell me I was just going through a rough patch. I didn't know that was a diagnosis now. A rough patch wasnt in my nursing books. He then walked out of the room after prescribing me medicine I can get OTC and said to talk to his scheduler. Did not even tell me the procedure he wanted to do. I had to tell him my possible dx and reques to be tested for it. Horrible bedside manner and incompetent care. If any doctor tells you "you are going through a rough patch" DO NOT GO BACK!
Instruction sheet I recieved that the nurse would contact me 48 hrs. to take my history. She never called. I called her 24 hrs. prior to my colonoscopy and was told she was too busy to take my history and she would speak with me when I arrived for my procedure. I was told to be at the clinic at 2:00 and the procedure would be performed at 2:30. I arrived at the clinic at 1:40. I had received a letter the previous dat that my procedure was covered 100% by my insurance, but, when I checked in I was told that I owed $119.00. I explained that I had received the letter from their office verifying coverage but was told that I had been diagnosed with ulserative colonist and pain under my left rib cage. I've never had a colonoscopy and had no such diagnosis. I still had to pay or the procedure would not be done. I paid due to the fact I had already done the prep and taken off work. There were no available seats in the waiting room. People sitting on the floor, and tables. Others were asked to leave a cell number and they would be called when they had space. Fours hours after my appt. time I demanded a credit and left. The waiting room was dirty and the staff was rude. Leaving was the best decision I've ever made. They were running patients throuth like cattle. I would never recommend this doctor. I can't imagine what the or looked if the waiting room was any indication.
