I went there and had a GREAT experience. They were fast and the doctor was nice. Took care of me right away. They even called to check on my a few days later..... The other reviews must have been under the old company who ran it. It's changed a hands not to long ago. Oh... And my sister takes her kids their. She's never had anything bad to say about them and the kids feel the same.

Tracy Painter MD
Dr. Painter did surgery on my hand when I broke it, and then later did carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. I am a dental hygienist, so my hands are my lifeline. Dr. Painter did an excellent job and got me back to work quickly. He is very personable, and answers questions so that you can understand. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Dr Robin and her staff are amazing. They genuinely care about your health and not just pushing some medications on you.

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.
