Dr. Dorian Moore has been by far the best doctor that i've ever had! Even if i have a insurance change i make sure my next provider allows me to see her and even if i didnt have coverage id pay to see her out of pocket!!! She actully cares about her patients and their health issues. She is understanding and she is not affraid to also speak her mind as well as go the extra mile to correct or fix medical issues or medical errors. Shes never once let me leave feeling as if she ignored or disregarded my health problems when i have them and when its a routine visit its short and sweet. When ever i have an appointment with her i am honestly happy and excited to see my doctor...which says alot...because most people dread going to a doctors appointment!

My Daughter was Born with a cleft lip an a cleft palate. she was referred to Dr. Edwards for surgery an check ups. Dr. Edwards an his staff have done a wonderful job at making us as a family more aware of the condition she was born with an have made everything that much easier for us to understand. He is a remarkable doctor an i would recommend him to ANY one. Great hospital, great Doctor, great nurses, and awesome bed side manors comes from this remarkable place. I am more then pleased with the results and the important information that Motts Children's hospital offers.

i am very pleased with the kind compassionate care I have received from Dr Tariq. He listens to me with concern and provides feedback to me, answers my questions, and is always very caring and professional. I was very impressed here in the hospital when he brought a chair and was looking at me at eye level. His voice is very pleasant and he puts me at ease when conversing with him. I feel he gives me honest answers and never seems in a hurry to rush on to the nest patient.

The urology department is amazing! My sister has been been seeing a urology surgeon to prepare for a kidney transplant and she has been the BEST. The urology department are all wonderful. We never had to wait in the waiting room for an Appt and when several appt's were scheduled the coordinated the one right after another so we wouldn't have to wait between appt's or make several trips as we are 2 hrs away. The best service and very caring!!!

I was a patient at the U of M in Nov..2013 for 9 days while they evaluated my pancreatic tumor. I had some of the Best nurses anywhere!!! They were kind, respectful, and attentive. I was released to return in Dec. for surgery. Again... I was cared for in a most respectful, caring manner. I will, and have, recommended U of M to others.

He is caring and wants to help. He does not become frustrated when the patient is frustrated and is complex. He is willing to help.
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.
