We love Dr. Wright. She has connected with my daughter.

May 06, 2014

It might be helpful if Drs. talked with Parents separately. Sometimes the answers given by patient don't give a real view of what is happening. Just a suggestion.

Had to call back and have DR Wright explain some issues to me, and she was very direct in helping me make a decision.

dr. Wright is very nice and seems very capable. I am glad she is a sarcoma Dr. And not just a general oncologist.she listened to my concerns and explained things extremely well. I feel she is completely capable of handling my care.

June 05, 2012

One of the most positive medical experiences I have had in a long time!

April 21, 2012

I've never had a doctor who actually took the time to listen to my questions! And then go through each one and answer them. Dr. Jennifer Wright is so very thorough! She then proceeded to make times for me to speak with other doctors in the institute in the areas where I had concerns. She is the BEST!
