My trip to the office starts blah, but once i met the medical doctor and nurse, i enjoyed it. They were very professional and treat me as i was an old friend. They were very attentative to me and made sure i walked out in good spirits. Now, the Next day , i had to have blood work done. The nurse or technician was very rude. I never knew what it felt to be treated like cattle until i met her. She was extemely rude and no personal skills. She never even acknowledge me in the room until i said something like"Goodmorning" and her response was have a seat. That tells me that she has no care in the world for her clients. So needless to say, I got up and walked out. Told the receptions what had happened and left. I was not about to have a technician poke me and have no care about how i felt.

Unbelievable, unsurpassed patient care and professionalism! My daughter is a psychologist and she recommended this urgent care facility, I had my doubts.. I was blown away from the phone call, to the receptionist, to the rest of the staff and the doctor that attended me. He quickly diagnosed the problem and gave me what I needed to recover back to good health. Thank you Urgent Care for taking care of me when I needed medical care! You want excellent care in a caring and respectable environment come to urgent care at the Target mall in the Bronx, near the Hutchison Parkway by the Whitestone bridge. Mrs. Z-Adebo

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.
