Reddy Urgent Care
New practice that just opened up in late 2007, and they were spectacular. I guess because they are new, there wasn't much of a wait. I was able to get in and out in about 45 mintues, which is usually how long it takes me to even get to the back area of the Athens Regional UC. All the front staff are very helpful and understanding. I saw Dr. Denis on my first visit and he seemed very knowledgeable, and he was nice enough to explain everything in regards to my problem and the RX he gave me. So if you don't feel like waiting around for a long time just to be rushed out of the building, do yourself a favor and visit Reddy Urgent Care. And the waiting room is nice too, though it could use some better magazines than 256 issues of Southen Distinction. woof.

Reddy Urgent Care
I took my daughter to Reddy Urgent Care. Nurse and doctor both asked if my daughter was allergic to anything. I told them both my daughter is allergic to zithromax. The doctor told me my daughter had bronchitis. He called a prescription in to the pharmacy. I got home to give the med to my daughter and it was zithromax.. The same med that I told the doctor and the nurse my daughter is allergic to. I attempted to call back then, but they had already closed. I had to wait until the next day to talk with someone. The lady I spoke with looked at my daughters chart and said it was listed that she is allergic to Zithromax. She was very polite and helpful. She aplolgized and made it right.

I came into your facility because my daughter had a sore throat for several days. The service was awful nurses did not return my phone calls.The Doctor did not prescribe anything to benefit my daughters well being. The girl who answered the phone was extremely rude! Just transfered me without evening listening to me. The only person who actually seemed like they were interested in my daughters well being was a girl named Beckie I think her name was. She was very sweet and kind hearted. She genuially cared. All of your offices should have a Beckie!! She's the only reason we will be coming back!! If we come back!!!!

My daughter had a pretty sizable gash on her leg. We weren't sure if she needed stitches or if it was something we could successfully treat at home. I asked the woman at the front desk for her opinion. She said she thought we were good to treat it ourselves, but had another nurse and nurses assistant take a look as well. They gave us quick instructions as to what to get at the drug store, saving us much time and money. I am so very appreciative for their help and kindness today!! The office was very nice and clean, I would definitely go back.

Dr. Kolb and staff provided courteous, professional, competent, and prompt attention for upper respiratory infection. The clinic is modern, clean and comfortable. Would recommend without reservation. Next to Jittery Joe's caffeine dispensary to boot.

I'm a patient and I get great care.
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.
