Dr. Michael M Dvorkin, MD
What a wonderful doctor!!! Mom was experiencing excruciating pain in right hip, had a scan and diagnosed with a mild fractured hip and arthritis. She was referred to two orthopedic surgeons. We called the 1st doctor and was told she couldn't get an appointment for two weeks. Then we called Dr Dvorkin's office, explained the situation to receptionist, who put us on hold and talked to the Doc. She got back on the phone and said come in now....Wow!!! Mom went to the office, he reviewed the scan and said he could do surgery that Monday, this was on Tuesday. He was willing to rearrange his schedule. Being skeptical, at 80, and never meeting this Dr. before, she said she would wait. We researched Dr D and found he was very reputable. Two weeks later, Dec. 5, 2016 she went under the knife. He did such a great job, she was up the next day, walking on a walker and was released within 2 days. She was off her pain meds within 4 days. Today, Jan 5th was 30 days, our 2nd follow up and she is doing great! Dr. D is so informative (explaining every detail) and he is so caring and understanding. His staff is very remarkable also, attentive and friendly. They went the extra mile initially talking to the doctor and scheduling Mom right away. Mom was under a lot of stress deciding whether to live with the pain or get the surgery. She is thankful she made the right decision, having the surgery and getting the right doctor. You rock Dr. Dvorkin....Thank you!!!

His humor and approach to medicine relieves fears you may have, he is quick to respond to any emergency and keeps his patients informed. If an appointment needs rescheduled, it is done without hesitation. I have found that even if you haven't seen him for several years, he remembers who you are, makes you feel more like a friend instead of patient. And even if you haven't even seen him as a patient yet that day; his hello, will help you relax until you feel better just by saying hello and seeing his smile. RNW

I would like to say this practice is composed of wonderful caring people... For example, Shirley Critzer, Practice Manager, is a thoughtful, altruistic professional who went out of her way [and beyond her job description] to help and inspire my 7-year old daughter's medical career aspirations. This is a perfect example of effective medical practice leadership in the community through inspiration, selfless service and encouragement. Thank you, Shirley!

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.
