These people are not even rated for 1 star!! They are only worried about a Dollar and not your child. This is my 2nd time going there because my child was sick and they did NOTHING but say let him ride it out and he will be fine.. In the past 4 days my child has only slept for about 6 hrs. Total! They diagnose him with Rhinovirus and send him home with NO medication and tell me not to even give him Motrin! They also tell me that's it's okay for my son to run fever, REALLY this is the 1st I have ever heard of that! They just need to shut there doors if they are only there for a paycheck and not the wellbeing of children.. I am on the search now for a new doctor and will never bring my child back there or recommend ANYBODY... HORRIBLE DOCTORS

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.
