Dr. Pattan and his nurse are excellent . I was suffering with my thyroid being out of whack for a long time. However, for whatever reason, the ability to leave a message for the nurse was taken away which has resulted in miscommunications that normally would not have happened. Several times I have had to leave a message with the receptionist and the info did not get passed along. I do not know why they took this away. When the nurse is busy it is really helpful to be able to leave a message. I have always received a prompt call back when leaving messages for the nurse.

Dr Santiago is an excellent neurologist! My 1st experience of seeing him was when I had serious problems that needed expertise care, after being taken by ambulance to Local hospital which did not know what problem was. Ambulance took me to Casper, DR SANTIAGO immediately diagnosed it was seizures! He is a GOD SENT!

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.
