About Me

Marlene Wright, FNP-C

I'm Marlene Wright and I am a native Arizonan. Been here my whole life and love it here and so I chose to go to Arizona State University. I got both my undergrad and my graduate degrees there. One of the reasons I came to Arizona Dermatology is I had done one of my clinical rotations here when I was a student, and I really felt the people were exceptionally knowledgeable here. The staff were all very well trained, very well educated. The doctors were very caring, and I could feel that coming through when they treated patients so I wanted to be a part of that. There's a lot of things we do at Arizona Dermatology to help our patients. We are very cognizant of the needs of our patients, so we want to make them happy and we want to make them comfortable. One of the things that we really feel are important, we try to make their time waiting for us as short as possible because we know their time is important to them as well. So we care about our patients. We care about the time we wait for us in the lobby. We care about the time they wait for us in the room. We care about if they receive telephone calls back when they have called us regarding a question. We care if their medications are too much money. We try to work with the patients to get them the most affordable medications that they would require. We work with their insurance on that. So we care about the quality of the treatment they receive but we also care about the other aspects of their lives trying to encompass all of their needs in our visits with them.
