I agree with Madeline I. (below). The doctors are very compassionate but trying to even get through on the phone is ridiculous. I have tried numerous times just to continuously get a busy signal. It's easier to go out of your way and stop by the office than it is to get someone to answer the phone. Very frustrating!

I take my Mother to see her Doctor here once a month. The Doctors in this practice are without a doubt the most compassionate group of Doctors I have ever met. I can not say the same about the people they have answering the phones. If you mention that you are taking a pain killer be prepared to be treated like dirt. Even the tone of her voice changes like she is dealing with a drug addict. Well dear it was the Doctor you work for who prescribed this drug . She did not buy it on the street. They now have a recording that you get to talk to if you need a refill on a drug. A wonderful step up from having to talk to there office staff. Does there mission statement only apply to the Doctors? You know the part about being compassionate.
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.
