If you're looking for a GREAT surgeon, Dr. Ford is the expert you need to see. I can't thank him enough for how he's helped me. He looked out for my health and when the hospital tried to charge me more after the surgery he took care of that also. He went above and beyond all the way around. Always there just a phone call away. I highly recommend Dr. Ford, I truly believe he is the BEST! I had my hernia surgery back in August of 2016. Everything went smooth and I haven't had any problems since. It's so nice not to look down and see a big lump sticking out on my belly that was impossible to hide for over 30 years. I wound up losing my belly button it was totally destroyed. I waited so long it was beyond repair. I can honestly say I don't miss it at all. I tell everyone I'm an alien. My wife has always told me that I am out of this world. I couldn't be happier with the results so do yourself a favor and see Dr. Ford. -Thanks, Ray Williams

I have usedMedCare on two occasions. Once for myself and the other for my young daughter. What a great service they provide! The staff and doctors are all professional, courteous & efficient. Both visits we were in and out between 30-45 minutes. They accepted my insurance but also have a program for people without insurance. I gave the paperwork to my neighbor who is having a hard time finding medical care without insurance and they said this was the best deal they have found.

I am so happy with today's experience at this facility. It is so hard to find a kind, thoughtful, and caring doctor these days. Genevieve Jones, M.D. fit that exact discription. I had a pretty embarasing problem and she went above and beyond with making sure I felt comfortable. She really took care of me. She said, "God put me here to help you". They are so lucky to have her. So, a big thanks to her for being so amazing. You don't find someone like her often. She deserves a raise.

Monica Lominchar MD
Dr. Lominchar has been my PCP since 2006. I will not venture out to look for another doctor. She is the best I've ever had! Kind, honestly and seriously interested in your thoughts about your condition. She takes her time when looking at all the pieces of your medical puzzle and knows exactly what to do. My family loves her and her super talented staff. We will always be loyal to Dr. Lominchar and her staff.

Hamilton, Lauren F MD
I would highly recommend Dr. Hamilton. She is the most compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable doctor I've ever seen. She will listen and help you with any issues that you have. All of the employees at Charleston Ob/Gyn are friendly and make you feel comfortable. I've never had an unreasonable wait time or felt rushed. Thank you Dr. Hamilton for being the BEST!

My experience here is top flight. Both Drs Slesinger and Buthorne put me at ease. Most amazing to me is the absence of pain both during and after my surgeries. I appreciated the private waiting room provided between surgery, skin testing and stitching. They have a nice treatment environment with views of the low country which is comforting to me.

Just went to this place over the holidays. I don't have insurance but knew I needed a catscan of my chest. I priced it everywhere and these guys were the least expensive I could find. I got the results back in 30 minutes with a copy of the report and a CD to take to my other doctor. Everybody was fast and friendly.

My daughter is a C of C student. She went to this clinic today and was in and out with only one patient ahead of her. It's awful when you are so far away and your child gets sick. It's good to know this clinic is nearby and available for weekend appointments.

Today was my first time at MEDcare and I was very happy. The facility is very clean and welcoming and there was no one in the waiting room. I was seen within 5 minutes! Everyone was kind. I especially appreciated the compassion of the 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.
