Romanick Sue MD PLLC
Dr. Romanick is a thorough and competent rheumatologist. I'm not sure what to make of these reviews. If I had seen these first, I probably wouldn't have gone to see her. Luckily for me, I didn't. She knows her stuff, seriously. I find her energy warm and positive and I really like that. I think her office staff are kind and went out of their way to help me get my medical records transferred after my other doctors office dropped the bomb. I think she's really good. I suppose some people will have good experiences here and some may not. I'd make up your own mind instead of listening to other people that may not have gotten what they wanted or have nothing to compare her to. I have no problem referring people to Dr. Romanick. Her brain is like an encyclopedia of symptoms and she's able to make diagnosis no one else would ever come up with. I no longer have to go from doctor to doctor looking for answers. Thanks Dr. Romanick!

Fedelta Care Solutions
We were forced to find live in caregivers when my mother discharged from Good Samaritan Hospital. This was a new process for us so we did an internet search. Fedelta popped up as one of the first listings and they had a checklist we downloaded of questions to ask before we hired any agency. After talking with one of their advisors, we set up an assessment for the same day and had a caregiver in for a live in night shift that night as well. So far we have been very pleased with our caregiver and the experience as a whole.

Fedelta Care Solutions
We were referred to Fedelta by a nurse at Group Health in Bellevue. We needed a very specific caregiver to meet the picky specifics of dad. We told this to Fedelta upfront, but they weren't bothered by it. They found someone who worked well with dad and we have had them now for several months without incident.
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.
