Pain Consultants & Intervention Edward Poon MD
Dr Poon has the most unprofessional staff at his front office. I received a bill in the mail for the1st time stating I had a balance over 121 days over due, yet I had not received any prior bill. When I called the lady at the front desk she kept sending me to cant even talk to the billing person. So I went down in person. Walked into an empty office and the billing lady said she would send me something she said she was busy so I would have to wait. Again the office was empty. I told her I want to take care of this immediately so she printed my bill. When I asked her to explain it to me she said that she would not. After several minutes of trying sit in her office so she could explain she stood in front of me and said I couldn't go in there. Although Ive seen her take other patients in there to discuss billing. So I left a message for the Dr to call me and from the looks of these comments he is going to be just as unprofessional. Left in tears and with them threatening to call cops on me because I wanted my bill explained. Isn't that their job?! Horrible service!

Lovato Eyecare
Terrible and expensive. In fact I paid twice as much for this eye care at Lavato Eyecare than I did for my prior eye doctor in Durango. They just want your money. It's cheaper for me to drive all the way up to Dgo, get more than half the price from a true professional for exam, contacts, & glasses (I paid over $1,000 for these same services at Lavato). And you get nice customer service as well as a lovely day in Durango to top it. Lavato even argued with me over the phone when I shared my concern about the high prices and wanting me to set up an appointment just for an evaluation before the actual appointment. There's other services in Albuquerque that I'm sure are much better in quality and price. Just don't let anyone treat you like a number.

Hogares Inc
When I was a resident there we were i structed NOT to tell inspectors that we lived with roaches and mice. When kids would misbehave their beds, clothes and hygiene products were confiscated. At one point, in Casa Antiqua under Laura Wolf's guidance, the refrigerator was padlocked and all the food locked in the office. This is fact. Abuses took place and everyone looked the other way because we were "troubled kids"., an excuse for abusing and neglecting us.

Albuquerque Urology Associates
Worst urologist I've ever been to. Unprofessional and condescending. Billed me over a year and a half after initial surgery and said it "slipped through the cracks.". Would never use them again.

Epoch Behavioral Healthcare
EPOCH is a company that is owned by an investment company. Therefore, don't expect anyone to really care about you. It's the money. My first visit was with Carol Schaffer. OMG! She's a nightmare! She rushed me through a 10 minute appointment. She gave me a script for pain meds and told me to go next door to their "pain clinic" because that's where they send all of their pain patients. Come to find out, it was just a ploy. Their "pain clinic" is actually to see an addictionologist who prescribes Suboxone. I'm not an addict! I can guarantee you that since EPOCH is owned by an investment company, they also have stock in the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture Suboxone! Also, watch out! If you're being prescribed psych meds, you could walk up to the door someday and EPOCH will be gone. The doors locked and shut! Then what do you do since it's taking so long to get into see a shrink. THIS COMPANY AND ALL STAFF ARE A SCAM! THEY NEED TO BE REPORTED TO ALL INSURANCE COMPANIES!

Carol shafer suggested that I reevaluate the profession I've had for 12 years because I have ADD. She lectured me on a medication I received from my primary, just overall very unprofessional, rude, and judgemental.

Do NOT waste your time with these people!! If I could give this place less than 1 star I would. They give you the run around to just get an appointment. Their doctors don't even care enough about their jobs enough to show up for work, so how can they care about their patients?! Good luck to any who try to deal with these hacks who call themselves mental health "professionals".

Rastogi, Puneet
Dr. Rastogi is awful. At the Walmart Vision in Bernalillo, he prescribed me toric contact lenses and would not believe me that I don't need them. Later, with my exam for Lasik, they told me my corneas were nowhere near needing toric lenses. He was rude, obnoxious, late in the morning and in a hurry to leave in the afternoon. Worst optometrist, ever.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
