David Wright, MD

January 30, 2020

Dr. Wright decided on the medical field in high school. At one point he was torn between pursuing medicine or becoming a lawyer. He made the decision to pursue medicine based on the appeal of the ability it would give him to help people in times of world disaster.

His academic history started by double majoring and earing BA’s of Biology and Psychology from the University of Virginia in 1980. In 1984 Dr. Wright received his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia. He achieved AOA honors, meaning he was in the top 10% of his class. He continued to Duke University Medical Center for an Internal Medicine internship. Dr. Wright is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and takes special interest in Integrative Medicine, Addiction Medicine, and Wellness and Prevention.

Outside of being one of our wonderful providers, Dr. Wright enjoys music, shows, playing guitar, golf and travel. Sometimes he even travels in order to serve! On a medical mission three years ago he visited China to serve orphanages, and just last year he traveled to India on a Christian medical mission.
