Life Spring Womens Health Care
This clinic is WONDERFUL!!!!! The absolute best staff and doctors anywhere in NWA. They are considerate, kind, and really cared about me as a patient. Dr Fry's nurse is my favorite. I found her to be timely and professional in dealing with my MANY needs (I was a panicked new mother, what do you expect?? :) I would recommend this clinic to every single person I encounter. All negative reviews aside, you couldn't ask for a better staff or physicians to place your trust in for all your healthcare needs. THANKS LIFESPRING!!!!

DR A D Bicak MD
I have been a patient of Dr. Bicak for several years and have been very happy with the care I have received. Almost all of my office comes to this clinic. The care that my friends, family, and coworkers get at this office is very good. The front office has always been exceptional and do all they can do to get me in when I am sick and I appreciate it. I simply do not believe the 1 star rating that the other reviewer gave and believe it is likely to be "fake".
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.
