Makar Eyecare
I will be returning to Anchorage very soon and am thrilled to have already found a business that more than meets my eye care needs and personal satisfaction. MAKAR staff are always very friendly and helpful and, in my 59 years, I have never had eye exams as comprehensive as they are here. Dr. Elizabeth Lane is the best! Under her direction, I feel my eyes are in the best shape they have been in many years.... glasses and contacts I can actually see out of and recommendations for vitamins that help maintain good eye health. The optical department has high quality eye ware and staff that goes out of their way to make sure that glasses fit well and enhance appearance. Appointments are easy to schedule and you get timely notification on the arrival of eye glasses and contacts. These folks are an awesome group of professionals and will serve you well.

Medical Park Family Care
Dr. Lord saved my life years ago by attending to my medical needs while recognizing I was just a scared patient and needed explanations of what was going on with me and support. I've had Dr. Julie Robinson and Dr. Kiera Conway. Robinson was great and I loved Conway. There was one time there was a doctor that did not go over and beyond like all the other doctors do. He was just adequate while all others were superb. That's the worst thing I can say, which means this place is almost perfect. Staff is always friendly and accommodating when I come in The lines at check in go quick and it seems like it's a great place to work. I like being someplace where the employees are happy. It makes for a great atmosphere. I highly recommend this place. Thank you Medical Park for all you do.

Makar Eyecare
Expedient, sincere, and professional service!!I have been a client with Makar Eyecare for my 4 years in Alaska thus far and have received nothing short of the most professional and friendly service. Dr. Elizabeth Lane and her colleagues are a team of expert clinicians with excellent client rapport. I have recommended more than 5 others to their practice and they remain pleased. I have also met many who are clients of Makar Eyecare and have been for many years; all very pleased with the services they receive. I never have difficulty getting an appointment in a timely manner and the office staff is very courteous. And now, with the online appointment making system....it's gotten even easier. TWO thumbs up for Makar!!!

The Children's Clinic
For the last 15 years TCC has provided competent, compassionate, and timely care to my three children. I love the fact that TCC has a Triage nurse available to take my calls anytime day or night. This is particularly important considering the fact I have a "special needs" kid so having timely access to a nurse or our doctor helps keep me sane! I also really like the fact that year after year we see the same faces, our nurse in particular has worked there for 23 years. In 15 years we have never had any problems with the billing department. I wish I could see the doctors at The Children's Clinic! If you are looking for a pediatrician, look no further, The Children's Clinic is the best choice in town!!!!

Makar Eyecare
Makar Eyecare has been a great experience for me in the two years that I have been going. The staff members are very friendly, the selection of glasses are good and the facility is very clean.My optometrist, Dr. Elizabeth Lane, has worked hard with me to make sure I received the fit that I need to be able to see in both glasses and contacts. The time and attention dedicated to making sure I got exactly what I needed was wonderful.I always recommend to friends, family and coworkers that they go to Makar for their vision needs.

Makar Eyecare
Makar Eyecare is a great place my last visit was great. The doctors are always very thorough. The optical has a huge selection of frames and the opticians are very helpful. They offer the best lens features. My recent purchase I got this new lens feature that cuts blue light. It really helps with the computer. It has reduced my headaches I am so pleased two thumbs up to Makar Eyecare

I grew up in the clinic and now both of my children see the wonderful doctors in this clinic. We love them! Great staff, Nurses and Doctors.
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.
