Gene V Levinstein MD
As for Dr. Levinstein, he has the compassion and desire to help any/all individuals suffering with pain. He goes the extra mile to make someone feel as comfortable as possible without going through many rigerous medications. He listens to the patients complaints and tries to help with medications, tens-units, surgery, or whatever types of medical needs to help in comforting the pain. Although, when he has a more difficult patient who has been through it all, he tends to feel inadequate and frustrated by not seeing any improvements. As for his staff, Dorie is the most pleasant, polite, and respectful to patients needs and/or concerns. She handles each patient with dignity and others need to follow her example. Very good staff.

My children have seen both Dr. Brigido & Dr. Swarts. They are so great with them. My 1 daughter has 13 different disabilities & I got fed up when her LAST Dr diagnosed her worng. Her PT told us ot go here. Dr. Brigido was so great w/her and did what needed to be done. We always get appointments right away & the Dr even calls us back the same day. I will be going there again. So far I have had 1 child (17 yrs) and 2 adults (22 & 52) got there. In fact 1 has a appointment today> Thank you for reading.

I had a great experience at the Bethlehem location with Dr. Lountzis. It was my first time at a dermatology office visit and with his care and pleasant personality encouraged me to not fear the white coat syndrome. By high ranking recommendations he is the one I would choose over and over for care. I hope this recommendation will anyone decision.
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.
