Dr. Wrightson brings a wealth of experience in providing compassionate medical care to patients in the Greater Lawrence, Mercer and Venango Counties. As a board certified Physiatrist, his goal is to manage and alleviate pain with non-operative interventions for his patients.

With his specialization in non-operative interventional pain management, he fulfills a needed service in the Lawrence County and surrounding areas. Dr. Wrightson states, "We recognize that at Joshuason, LTD, we offer better personal and reliable service than larger hospital facilities that tend to be more rigid and unfriendly. But, we need to let the public know there is a better and more personal option for their physical well-being when they trust their care to us."

Our highest goal is simply to assist each and every one of our patients in feeling well again.
