WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

I was so pleased with everything. Dr. Wright is such a nice person and wonderful doctor. Brittany was so pleasant and friendly. They offer blankets and pillows and make sure throughout the entire procedure that you are comfortable and that you are as pain free as possible. Everything went well and they go out of their way to make it so.
Marianne D.

I had a recurring dermatological condition for several and a series of dermatologists as a result. And yet until I met Dr. Wright, my condition remained undiagnosed and it turned out to be potentially life-threatening. I am so fortunate to have found him and I would not go to anyone else and recommend him often.

Donald B.

What a great experience! I was greeted promptly and courteously by the front desk staff. I was seen almost immediately and treated with care and concern by both Devon and Dr. Wright. I will certainly make KID my home for dermatology and would highly recommend them to everyone.

Penny F.

Dr. Adam Wright took his time to explain the procedure, perform the surgery, and teach how to care for wound afterwards. I have found few physicians take such time with their patients and I am a registered nurse.

Laurie J.
Dr. Wright listens, answers questions, gives understandable explanations, presents options. I consider him an outstanding physician, and his nurse is also excellent. The use of technology is also very good. BTW, my rating on the facility pertains to the Lenoir City location. I would rate the Knoxville location Excellent.
Jane R.
I tend to avoid doctors if I can. And I have never left a review for any medical person or facility. But Dr. Wright made some uncomfortable symptoms easy to discuss and then was able to offer excellent options for resolving those issues. I would send anyone I care about to see him for any sort of skin-related complaint. He is the best!
Sean M.

This was my first visit with Knoxville Institute of Dermatology, and my first visit with Dr. Wright. Dr. Wright seems like a very knowledgeable, caring doctor, who explains things well, and seems to care very much for his patients. I already have an appointment in a year to see Dr. Wright again for a check up. Since I live in Crossville it is also much more convenient to be able to see him at the Lenoir City office.

Barry S.
Thank you for the convenience of visiting this office in Lenoir City rather than going out of town. I received a thorough examination and treatment. I received reference material about the condition to read at home. Dr. Wright took the time to welcome me back and offer to help anytime. Who does that? I appreciate all of this. I have found myself a new dermatology center!
