Dr. Wright and Dr. Duffy are exceptional. They are respectful and took the time to discuss my questions and answer them in a way that was easily understandable.

My gos took me to the old UPMC cranberry facility. I called the office and they were very attentive and assisted me w directions to the new cranberry facility.

Dr. Vonda Wright was a very impressive person who was very skilled at explaining paint and condition and I appreciated that she was interested in trying to first correct pain and injury naturally with physical therapy and exercise before going straight to surgery. I was impressed with her forward thinking and how approachable she was.

Dr. Wright has all of the qualities I would look for in a physician, especially one whom you're going to trust to perform a surgical procedure . She is an excellent clinician who I felt I could trust implicitly relative to diagnosis and treatment recommendations . Above that, she was personable , seemed genuinely concerned about my health and spent as much time with me as required to answer all of my questions in a thorough manner. I could not possibly have been more impressed. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends who require orthopedic care.

When I told the care provider that I've had hip pain for 10 years and joint pain for about 15, she didn't seem to care and jumped right to arthritis and physical therapy. I'm an active person and played volleyball competitively from junior high throughout college and worked out a lot and still had hip and joint pain and I feel like I should have been offered something other than just physical therapy because I do a lot of therapy on my own. Additionally, the care provider would only let me visit a physical therapist at the Lemieux location. I told her I live an hour away and probably wouldn't have the time and the $8.40 in turnpike tolls every time but she didn't care and still only wrote the script for that one specific guy.

I had a good visit with Dr. Wright. She reviewed my problem and gave me direction for future action.

December 02, 2015

I had a great experience with Dr. Wright, her Physician's Assistant, John Duffy and the rest of the staff. They were kind, answered all of my questions in a way that was easy to understand , and made sure that I was comfortable and my needs were met before and after surgery. If I ever have to have any type of orthopedic surgery again, I will absolutely go back to them, and would definitely recommend them to other people.

Dr. Wright is an excellent doctor. She is a treasure.

Always a good experience seeing Dr.Wright.

Dr. Wright is wonderful - she talks directly to our 15-year old son and explains what she is doing and why she is doing it. Our son is committed to his recovery because she has provide important information about how he can improve his outcomes. We are thrilled that she was our son's surgeon. We love her.
