Patient Reviews
May 07, 2022
I had bariatic surgery in 1999 by Dr Bright, shortly after he moved from Virginia Mason to Spokane. He impressed me as a exceptional surgeon, after a complex stomach bypass surgery 23 years ago, I'm still doing fine. I stopped in to chat with him 10 years later. I should thank him again.
