McCarrick James P Jr MD
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.

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 .

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.

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.
