Of all the gyms in Auburn/ Opelika, this is my favorite. It has all the equipment and classes I need and their machines are very modern/ up-to-date. The temperature is always nice and the music makes my workout much more enjoyable. The trainers who set up my workout were able to pinpoint my problems and expertly inform me on how to fix them through exercise. My favorite part is that the gym is rarely crowded. Oh, and lets not forget the complimentary fruit! The gym COULD be a little nicer, but for what I get out of it, I'd take it over a Golds gym any day.

Overall level of care was fine but I had to wait 45 minutes past my scheduled appointment time. I didn't figure out something was wrong until they took three people ahead of me that had come in after me. Apparently their computers were down and the nurse didn't realize I was a patient. She thought I was waiting on someone. Very poor coordination between the administrator behind the desk lining up patience and the nurse.
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.
