I rate them ZERO. or 5 if we are rating them on unprofessional, foul, uncaring and heartless office with a foul smelling odor. This 'so called' doctor refused medical treatment to my aging mother (TODAY 2/11/14 ) who was referred from the Mercy Hospital upon release for follow up treatment. My mother has been bleeding internally and needs immediate treatment!!!!!!!!!! or "Urgent" treatment as the release forms states from UCD on 2/10/14 When they realized mom's coverage was not transferred entirely from Yolo Co. and is "pending" in El Dorado County, they refused to treat her.. I asked if they could print out the reason behind the 'refusal of treatment' as Mercy hospital referred her there. The receptionist offered to print out the coverage denial to help us expedite the process of having my mothers paperwork properly taken care of. I asked if they were refusing treatment they stated 'no,' they could not accept her Medical payment. The sign on the office stated they accept 'walk-ins and cash.' When we offered to pay cash as a second option the "Doctor" stormed into the reception room and informed his staff they will give us nothing and came after me verbally!!!!!!! He stated "She is not my patient and will not be my patient." and told me 'I had wasted enough of his staffs time then insisted they not speak to me and had them call the Police Department on me.' I explained again that all I wanted was the refusal in writing in which he said he was going to provide then rescinded and would not leave without something to provide to her worker, I offered to call for him... The audacity, discrimination and pure unethical treatment of this doctor who rescinded the 'agreement to give me the paperwork he originally stated he would provide' REFUSED medical treatment to a senior chose to call the Police Dept on me for asking for written paperwork denying his treatment for my mother is seriously out of line not to mention DISCRIMINATORY. Not only would I say to stay away from someone with such clear hostility....Perhaps if he cleaned his filthy, stale, moldy smelling office he could be a better provider should know I will proceed further. And for the record, the Police were awesome and very understanding of our concern and gave me information to pursue further. I will be forwarding this information to all of my friends at the Capitol, the Medical Board and an Attorney. Wrong day and wrong family...if something happens I blame you Sir, and attempt to remember we are a holy family. God doesn't like ugly! Regards, Tabitha A. Hamilton District Bargaining Unit Representative 14/Steward SEIU Local 1000and were is his medical license number???

After YEARS of being in a system where I have to schedule a dr appt months in advance, and in the "Medical Hospital Group" system, I found it intolerable. Called my old doctor for a pinched nerve, they told me to go to rapid care. Called my old doctor to see about getting some antiviral medication, no appointments available. Fluid build-up in my ears had me walking like a drunk and feeling like a plague survivor, no appointments. That did it, I want a DOCTOR who will see me when needed and even if it's a nurse practioner. Called Dr. Kelada's office, they saw me right away and took care of my ear problem. Dr. Kelada and his staff is actually AVAILABLE to me. But if you like the huge medical practice-no-doctor-right-away machine, you're welcome to them. I'm sticking with Dr. Kelada.
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.
