Dr. Wright has a personal understanding of the effects of hearing loss. When he was a teenager, his mother developed a significant hearing loss. He grew up seeing the frustration and difficulty that hearing loss can cause. Her hearing loss didn’t only affect his mom – it affected the whole family as well. Dr. Wright’s mom was eventually fit with hearing instruments. They made a significant reduction in everyone’s frustration level and greatly improved how she interacted with people. It was his family experience and the influence of his mother’s hearing loss that shaped his desire to help people hear better.
Dr. Wright leads the staff at Manna Audiology with his commitment to continuing education and dedication to understanding the latest, most advanced technology. Their desire is to maintain a lasting relationship with each patient by serving them with excellence, integrity, and professionalism. This commitment and dedication ensures that each patient will receive excellent service, expert advice, and extraordinary technology, which adds up to exceptional value.
He and his wife, Deb, have been married for over 27 years and have 2 adult children. When he is not in the office helping people hear better he enjoys spending time with his wife and family.
