Do not recommend this Doctor and Ladies ALWAYS do extensive research on Patient reviews on the internet and word of mouth about ANY doctor before choosing them. In addition to being generally uncaring and condescending during my visits with her, Dr. Michelle Amoroso (OB/GYN at Women's Care and in various offices across Tampa). Now there is a situation causing me huge grief. She prescribed me the lowest dose of Prozac to me to help me with my bad periods and agitation which worked very good. I was laid off my job shortly after. Soon my Prosac prescription ran out of refills, and she refused to refill it unless I came in for my annual papsmere -- fine but with a minimum fee of $175 PLUS lab work fees.. I don't have the $$ for the exam. Her office offered NO SOLUTION except "pay it or lose your prescription". They do not care about their patients!So, here I am now having terrible withdrawals from the Prozac and she is refusing to refill. I feel this is very bad professional judgment and disregard for another human being/mother! All she wants is $$. Any knowledgeable medical professional should know never let a patient withdraw from a prescription drug. Just as many of the reviews I have read across the internet and from other patients, I am now convinced that it wasn't just me, it seems to be a fact that she is very abusive behavior towards her Patients. I have had so many MUCH better OB/GYN's. Ladies -- read your reviews first. Many of the reviews I have read about her are words right out of my mouth and if I would have done my research in the first place, I would never be in the predictament I am in now.

Zweibach delivered my husband 28 years ago, my 1st born son 3 years ago & someone in his practice will be delivering my daughter in the next couple weeks. He always answers any questions I have & doesnt worry me about things unless its needed. He jokes around along with the rest of the staff, making it more of a homey feel instead of a strict Dr office. I have made some friends with the front desk staff & the nurses there too. The wait times can be a little long some times, but its completely understandable. The Drs have been there through the good & the bad times (3 miscarriages) & always treat me well.

I paid $200 to have nobody listen to me. I feel like a cattle in a herd at this place. The nurse met with me and then told me I needed to make another appointment to speak with a doctor. What a waste of time and money. Also they do not take tricare.

Was very courteous and was very thorough in his initial evaluation with me. Offered several treatment options.
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.
