awesome experience...if I unfortunately hurt myself again I will definitely use Dr. Wright for my medical needs.
very bad pain in my shoulder can not do therapy. due to it. I want something done
I am 100% happy with UPMC.
Dr. Wright and her staff were exceptional on all accounts
Experience was good. I was referred to another physician for consult for a possible treatment for my knee issue.
I'm glad that she wanted to investigate the pain I have in my knee and ordered xrays and an MRI to do so. She explained to me her best hypothesis and I was glad to hear that she is concerned and is going to make a recommendation based on the MRI.
This was my first visit to this UPMC facility since moving to the Pittsburgh area and I was thoroughly impressed with every aspect of the visit. everything was prompt, clear and professional. Thank you!
doc and pa were very dismissive. they made their decision to help me based on my having medical assistance. I feel that and my not being an athlete was their determining factor in Thier lack of treatment. she was disrespectful and dismissive to my medical health and made sarcastic remarks such as , you need to be more careful (when I told her my leg would give out while walking ) and then laughed. whenever examined me and was trying to hurry me out of the office. she treated myself and friend as if we were inconveniencing her . I had 3 doctors telling me I needed to see her to have my hip repaired , however, she had no interest in even listening to me or assessing my injured area . she walked in and shook my hand then proceeded to tell me how she wouldn't help them made insulting comments (as above ). I was hopeful that she would be the beginning of healing process . it turned out that I was insulted and dismissed. I would not recommend anyone going to see her unless they are an athlete and have considerable financial stability.
The staff was quick at identifying the problem, and I immediately felt better after the operation
Dr Wright is a wonderful doctor. Very knowledgeable, patient and kind.
Dr Wright is kind, compassionate & brilliant! She really listens & wants to help you become the best you possible! John, her PA, is also wonderful & caring. I highly recommend this office for any orthopedic needs!
DR. Wright is the very best at the type of care I needed. Hard to find a better sports medicine provider.
Dr. Wright is simply amazing and so is her PA John Duffy. I would go no where else with my ortho needs
Dr. Wright and John were aboslutely wonderful. The level of care had been outstanding.
Very good experience.
unable to help with pain mgt since I go to a pain mgt center for chronic pain.
Dr. Wright and her staff were professional, informative and deliberate in all aspects of care. This is the first time I have been seen regarding my issue that I have been provided a solid diagnosis and follow up care. I only wish Dr. Wright could follow through and do my surgery as well. I would not hesitate to return to this office.
Everyone was very pleasant and helpful
Dr. Wright is a fantastic physician. I will continue to go to her for any orthopedic problems I have.
the facility is clean and gorgeous. everyone was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Wright was very down to earth, easy to talk to, and just amazing. Her Physician Assistant was also very amazing. They both took their time with me and explained things easily. So glad someone recommended these Dr's!
Dr. Wright, and staff have done a very good job.
She seemed annoyed that I was taking up her time, she is a surgeon, as explained to me.
Dr. Wright is terrific.
Dr. White was clearly very knowledgable, but her schedule is over-booked. Start to finish, this appointment took 2 hours. About 10 minutes were spent on X-rays, approximately 15 minutes were spent visiting with the resident, and 6 minutes were spent with Dr. White. The rest of this time was spent waiting. Dr. White would benefit from having more time with patients to ensure an appropriate level of patient care. Dr. White also made one very specific referral for the problem addressed, but did not present alternative options. The referral does not accept insurance, and while I am thrilled to have further support suggested by a knowledgeable physician, I am disappointed that she did not present alternative options. Poor patient care.
provided excellent care. was honest about my condition. truly did care about my health and well being. greatly appreciated it.
Dr. Wright, John Duffy, and the entire staff are wonderful folks and make you feel like they are 100% engaged in helping you. They are the best!
The UPMC Lemieux Center is a wonderful collaborating concept to address chronic structural problems.
Vonda Wright is an excellent doctor. This is the second time we have needed to see her. She is attentive, quick and gets the answer to the problem very quickly.
Absolutely satisfied. Dr. Wright is the 3rd specialist I have gone to-she took time and finally I am getting answers and a diagnosis.
Dr. Wright was the first doctor to actually listen to my problems and had a desire to help me.
I am very happy. My knee is getting stronger everyday. Thank goodness she was able to fix it!
She took the time to answer all of my questions and made me feel comfortable.
Dr Wright is an exceptional surgeon which is why I requested her. great personality and explains things very well
My experience was very good with this provider Dr Wright. I thought that the information and the recommendations are workable and that I can navigate them. The only concern that I have which is not their issue is that the facility is far from my home and the the pt needed is not the same in my area.
I was amazed they were able to get me an appt to get the arthrogram and mri within an hour after my appt with the DR. and then they were able to get me back in teh next day to get my results.
I was very happy with my experience with the office from start to finish. The staff was very professional.
Dr. Wright seemed more concerned to talk to the fellow who was with her than talked to me. She was very rude and ignored some of my questions. She seemed to be bothered by the fact I was asking questions about my problem.
excellent care start to finish!
she wants to help, her team is behind her to help all in need
While the wait time exceeded an hour, Dr. Wright was extremely apologetic and offered to buy coffee. Additionally, the waiting area was extremely comfortable and spacious.
the staff was wonderful! they knew that I was on my lunch break and made sure to get me in and out quickly. I really appreciated how thoughtful they all were!
I enjoy my visits with Dr. Wright. I feel she cares about your issue or problem and provides a plan for corrective action.
they wouldn't let me leave without getting an mri immediately, to be sure I was OK. they went above and beyond to explain my medical condition, what care I needed, and even ordered a wheelchair and medical transportation for me before I left so I would be OK when I got home and in the future
Dr.Wright is great!
Very good wxperience.
Everyone at the facility was friendly and helpful. I would definitely use this facility again.
Dr Wright is excellent and very caring. She spent a lot of time with me and seemed very concerned. I would recommend anyone to her. I was vey impressed
The facility is First Class and the people were very friendly and attentive to my needs.
Dr. Wright is amazing. The Lemuix facility was gave me the best experience I could ever imagine. They diagnosed my meniscus tear with x-Rays, MRI, consultation and scheduled surgery on the following Monday because my knee was locked up. Pre op stuff was taken care of down the road on the same day. I couldn't ask for more!
This appointment was for a consultation to review a recent MRI and discuss my options. Dr Wright and her staff made sure I understood the risks of the procedure and also explained the benefits. She gave me her medical advice but left the decision up to me. at no point did I feel pressured into a decision either way.
Dr. Wright is great. She has treated me for many orthopedic related concerns and is always thorough and thoughtful during my appointments. She listens and discusses things in a way I can understand and is honest about how she feels I should proceed.
Dr Vonda Wright explains the steps needed for my physical therapy concerning my shoulder.
Dr Wright is an excellent surgeon and very concerned for my son's shoulder issue. I can't thank her and her staff enough for such excellent work performed as well as the after care.
Very professional well run operation. Exactly what I expected!
Top of the line service. UPMC was a absolute pleasure to deal with. I have already recommended friends to UPMC.
Best surgical experience!
Everything was great - nothing negative at all.
Dr. Wright and her staff are top notch. I have complete faith in her as my orthopedic surgeon. Always upbeat and friendly and willing to spend enough time to answer all my questions. Wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
Very good experience. Everyone was very kind. Doctor was very thorough in helping me to fully understand my injury and the treatment options.
Dr. Wright and her team are wonderful. They are attentive, knowledgeable, caring and responsive. We have had several follow-up questions regarding our son's surgery and Dr. Wright's office always responds with immediate and thorough answers.
Dr. Wright is so genuinely interested in her patients. This was my second visit. She brought up information we had discussed from the first visit. With seeing so many patients, I cannot believe she could remember such details.
Loved Dr. Wright and her staff. Will keep going back.
Dr. Wright was awesome. Really enjoyed talking with her. She was willing to answer my questions and explained everything to me in a way that I could understand.
Awesome .... the team from the front desk to the MRI tech who conducted the MRI during her lunch hour... how thoughtful of the team to make this happen so I could review with Dr. Wright prior to departure. Dr. Wright quickley gave referral to another Doctor. One that she would see herself. Showing confidence in the UPMC team!!!! Quick diagnosis between 2 experts allowed me to start physical therapy quickly on to the road of recovery!!! I will recommend family and friends to the UMPC team... THANK YOU ALL!!! Especially Dr. Wright for being so proactive !!!!
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 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.
I had a good visit with Dr. Wright. She reviewed my problem and gave me direction for future action.
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.
Dr. Vonda Wright is an excellent doctor. She is concerned, extremely smart and communicates her thoughts extremely well. She listens and cares and has a great personality.
This is my first visit to the office of Dr. Vonda Wright/UPMC Sports Medicine Complex in Cranberry. I was very pleased with the care I received and the quality of the folks I interacted with.
The most amazing Dr., treatment and care experience in my life!!! I cannot even find the words to express the unbelievable experience. Thank you!
Dr. Wright is an excellent communicator. She listens well and patiently explains the diagnosis. I had great confidence in her.
I felt I couldn't ask all the questions that I wanted , seen about 1 1/2 past time of visit, felt rushed
the visit with dr wright seemed slightly rushed; nevertheless, everything that needed to be said/done was accomplished. I would have liked a little more one on one time with the doctor who is going to operate on me in the near future. this was not possible due to the heavy volume of patients in the office that particular day. other than this small thing, all was great.
Professional and kind
I absolutley love Dr. Wright and her PA John. Those two are the perfect team. Whilst its not always easy to get in touch with Dr Wright via phone; John has always returned my phone calls promplty and addressed my every concern. Ive been through two surgeries with these two and feel like they honestly have my best interest and care at heart. I cant say enough good things about these two. I will always recommend this duo to anyone with orthopaedic needs.
Dr. Wright went way above and beyond in helping me get an assessment and advice about my injury and recovery. Thank you!!
Dr Wright exceeded my expectations. When she was recommended to me and I did the research, she seemed to be a very busy person. I thought she may just brush things off and be "in and out". She was the complete opposite. She took the time to explain so much to me about my hip issue. She was super nice, not arrogant and absolutely could not ask for better care. She is easily one of the nicest doctors I have ever had. She's the best! And I'm so happy she will be taking care of my hip.
Dr.Wright and all the staff were fantastic:top of their field, caring, organized, nd helpful in every way
All of the girls treated me with kindness and respect. They were very thoughtful. Dr. Wright was very concerned about my problem and is doing everything she can to help me through this problem and help me to walk again without such pain.
Dr. Wright spent time talking with me
Every one was helpful and informative
Dr. Wright is always available by texting and replies within minutes. She has a terrific "bedside manner".
UPMC I am very "Blessed" to have Dr. Vonda Wright. I think the "World" of her. She is a "Fabulous" doctor and Surgeon. I had my Left Rotator Cuff done and she did an "Excellent" job. She is absolutely "Awesome". I just Adore her.
Dr. Wright is top notch. Can't recommend her more highly. She is kind, considerate, thoughtful, and professional.
Loved Dr Wright and her staff
excellent care. hoping to resolve my injury and be pain free soon
Dr. Wright is a wonderful doctor, and I am happy that I was referred to her.
Dr. Wright is fantastic. I would recommend her to anyone.
Overall a very positive experience..
Excellent explanation of my condition. Patient and attentive to detail.
I had to have a knee problem addressed. Every one involved on UPMC end was excellent. Personable. friendly, and knowledgeable. I was originally to see Dr. Klatt, who after reading my file sent me to see Dr. Wright because of the type of sports related knee injury I had. I was really impressed by that because it seemed to me that my well being was top priority. Dr. Wright and her staff just blew my doors off. They addressed my problem, took my lifestyle and occupation into account when coming up with a strategy to keep the problem from reoccuring. Talked to me in a way I could relate to and understand and I never felt like I was being talked down to or not in control of my health care. I would, if I ever have another knee problem, call Dr. Wright without thinking twice. You really have a good one and I think Dr. Wright and her staff all deserve a big fat raise!
DR Wright is an excellent surgeon and I have trust in her skills and recommendations
Excellent by all personnel, from office to x-rays to doctor care by Dr. Vonda Wright and Dr. Ray Pahk.. Very thorough and eased my worries about my sons injury.....Thanks to all involved.
I was extremely impressed by Dr. Vonda Wright and her Fellow, Dr. Raymond Pakh
outstanding care and compassion
Excellent caring doctor, Genuine kind person Who really cares
Dr. Wright was amazing! I've been worried for a year about my injury and knew it would result in surgery...but she calmed every fear I have ever had! The wait was more than 15 minutes but she took the extra time with me as I am sure she did with others, therefore the wait was no issue. She is very knowledable and answers any questions or concerns I had. I have my surgery with her in a couple weeks and could ask for a better surgeon! Thank you to Dr. Wright and her PA, they were wonderful! (:
Excellent Doctors. Would highly recommend them !
Dr. Wright is very personal and compassionate. She listens very well and gives you the options for treatment. She also is very competent and and therefore I felt I got the best possible care.
