I agree 100 percent with the assessment made by first reviewer on Dr. Mccarrick's all around expertise. He has been my family's pulminologist for genetic lung issyes for over 20 years. On numerous occasions he has pucked up on other related and unrelated medical issues whilst treating the family. The Edney family owes a great debt to the hard work and depth of concern by Dr. Mccarrick. Simply put, He is brilliant.

This is the worst Dr who does not care about his patients. He's cold, removed and robotic. Has no understanding of your personal problems and only sees dollar signs. Told me my problems don't concern him. Refused to refill a medication that I was not abusing at all because I didn't have the money to come in to the office because I have insurance issues. He knew I would be in pain. I was dx with a torn rotator cuff with complications. I am an ex health care provider and know all about Dr. Shopping and he was implying that's what I was doing and that was not true. I had to sign papers and agree not to go to another Dr and I didn't. I kept my word. He didn't even call me to see how I was and had his secretary call. Don't go here. Asheville medicine is a joke. Every Dr who couldn't make it anywhere else practices here. I only hope he feels the pain I do and no one will care. He's a spoiled brat. The office staff is also rude and uncaring. Big mistake to come to this facility. Beware.

I am surprised and disheartened by the reviews of this clinic. I have been treated by many pain management specialist over the sixty seven years of my life. Some are abrupt, some are trying to diagnose health problems and seem abrupt. The Dr. with the thick accent is an excellent physician.He really tries to help his patients. His office seems to run smoothly and his staff is certainly professional. Are the other reviews written by inferior colleague? The other reviews are ridiculous .

Rude, staff. Dr Hassis was fine but couldn't help me because Carolinas Center For Advanced Management of Pain is very backward and out of date with what can help my condition. Like most corporate medicine Carolinas Center For Advanced Management of Pain is about exploiting human suffering for mega $$$.

I visited Carolina Pain Management a few months ago. I went for chronic back pain aggravated by sitting. The office staff were nice and polite. As for the physician... he was one of the worst doctors I had ever seen. He immediately talked to me like I was malingering. I remember he said "there are only 3 reasons for back pain" he rambled them off and looked at me very condescendingly. After the appointment I asked him what I should do for the pain. He grabbed a sample pack of celebrex and handed it to me. What a jerk. I was in terrible pain. I returned for the medial nerve block to diagnose the reason for my misery. He proceeded with no pre med for the anxiety of having multiple needles stuck in your back and no pain med for after the medication wore off, which was only 3 hours. The pain that I experienced after the anaesthetic wore off was horrific. I called the office sobbing, begging for relief. The nurse said she would call me back. She didn't. I only went back for the follow up. I saw his PA. He was very nice. He advocated for me with the doctor to provide me with relief. I never returned. I was fortunate enough to find Blue Ridge Pain Management. I was provided with the care I desperately needed. When it came time for the dreaded medial nerve block I was reduces to tears because I had terrible PTSD from my experience with Carolina Pain. The doctor reassured me and told me they always pre med for anxiety and provide pain relief for after the procedure. If it wasn't for Blue Ridge Pain Management I don't know what would have happened to me. I was becoming severely depressed and bed ridden. My advice to you...STAY AWAY FROM CAROLINA PAIN MANAGEMENT.

Top notch physician. Dr. McCarrick is an internist, pulminologist, critical care pulminologist, and sleep disorder (sleep study) physician. Dr. M is one of the most well rounded physicians I have encountered in my 65 years of visiting physicians throughout the US and Europe. In addition to his immense knowledge and capabilities, he is also one of the easiest physicians to speak to and deal with. I now live 3,000 miles away from Asheville but travel back to Asheville to see Dr. McCarrick. He is that outstanding that I will take the beatings of travel to see him. Top notch physician. Ten stars if I could give them.

The worst place in the world for cardiac care. I saw Mr. James Usedom and had EKG reviewed by Dr. Eric Van Tassel at this place and both doctors disagreed on the EKG and then Mr. James Usedom told me I have absolutely nothing wrong with my heart when in truth I had 3 leaky valves and heart disease, as confirmed by Wake Forest University echocardiogram, 2 months after tests here. The office then lied that they do their echocardiograms better (lol). I hope this place gets shut down by the feds.

The most awful experience I have had in my 67 years. I have seen a lot of docs in those years and nothing compares to this. I waited a month to get in that place and I wish I had never gone. I saw a Dr. Morono, heavy accent that I couldn't understand and he was abbrasive, abusive, listend to nothing I had to say. Said that for someone who claims to be in pain I could sit for a long period of time. He also made a sexist statement that I hadn't heard in today's society in years. He told my husband that "SHE" brought her better half with her. Maybe in his culture women are nothing but not here in the USA. He had me in tears bullying me so I left. There were obvious drug addicts wandering about the place. Not for me. There should be a minus rating system for this one.

Dr. Andrew is so passionate about helping people achieve health! All the pain in my shoulders was gone after the second adjustment.
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.
