Alspaugh, Carrie D, MD
I've been a patient of Dr Alspaugh for several years for the treatment of my adult cystic acne as well as skin cancer family history. She is thorough in her exam and treatment. She listens to my concerns about suspicious or changing skin spots and makes detailed notes about those that we need to watch. She is also quick to follow up on any biopsies. She even squeezed me in a few weeks ago to treat a cystic acne flare up on my face a couple days before my wedding. I am very pleased with the treatment I have received from Dr Alspaugh.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Lokitz for over 7 years. Her kindness and compassion are extraordinary and her medical expertise is exceptional. I am a multiple melanoma survivor thanks to Dr. Lokitz and her superb medical knowledge to diagnosis my atypical skin cancers before they metastasized. She truly has repeatedly saved my life. I owe her my deepest gratitude for her continued support and determination to help me beat this disease. My sincerest thanks to you my dear Dr. Lokitz.

For many years Dr. Alspaugh has treated me for different types of skin cancers. I've had so many, she has me on the 6 month rotation, which I'm grateful to have her keeping me on such close follow ups. She is very thorough, professional, and kind. If I detect something suspicious before my appointments, she sees me within a few days. Thankful to have her as my Doctor

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.
