Dr. Abhijit Ajitkumar Raval, MD
I've been a regular patient of Dr. Raval for four years. If you have lung issues I highly recommend him. He doesn't treat you like a chart; he sits down and talks to you one on one and he understands that chances are you have less experience with your illness than he does. He doesn't sugar coat anything, and when you're sick and sometimes you need a firm 'talking to' he's your guy. What I have may likely kill me. I'm not so afraid with him as my Doc.

Dr. John Doster, MD
Dr. Doster and all staff at the Anderson Cancer Center are the most professional people I have ever met. Dr. Doster is the type of Dr. who will answer your questions and will listen to you when you tell him what is wrong. I am more than pleased at the care I have received from this entire team. From the front desk nurses to the Chemo nurses, to the Lab techs. They are all more than qualified. Fantastic Crew.

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.
