Provider of the Week – Dr. David Wright
October 10, 2019
Hey Health First! This week we are recognizing Dr. David Wright as one of our fantastic providers for Provider of the Week. Dr. Wright is a patient favorite here at Health First, and we feel so lucky to have him on our team!
Dr. Wright is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and takes special interest in Integrative Medicine, Addiction Medicine, and Wellness and Prevention.
Dr. Wright decided to pursue a career in the medical field in high school. At one point he was torn between 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 his bachelor’s degrees in 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 that he was in the top 10% of his class. We have the brightest of the brightest here at Health First!
Dr. Wright continued on to Duke University Medical Center for an Internal Medicine internship.
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 medical mission trip.
