Insource Performance Solutions
When I had an interview with a recruiter from Insource, she told me that I would be working full time (and expected to work overtime during peak seasons) and she told me I would receive a performance pay. When I asked about the performance pay, she said that I would have a base pay ($9 p/ hour) and depending on my work performance, I can earn anywhere from $0.25 to $3.00 extra. Even though I was hesitant about $9 a hour, I happily took the position because I had been looking for work for almost 2 years.On my first day, other Insource employees warned me not to get too excited about the performance pay because it was rarely awarded. After a solid month of working with Insource, I see why other employees were saying this. Within 30 days, I was making (on average) $12.15 an hour and I can run circles around a lot of the other employees. I quickly noticed that the employees who were complaining were the slow ones who wanted to talk with their buddy all the time! A manager is not always breathing down your back and I took advantage of the situation by being a productive worker. Others would find opportunities to hop on their phones when managers were not around and they were not being productive (your productivity is tracked on a computer).After a month of working with Insource, they certified me on a forklift and taught me how to drive one. I still managed to keep my performance up and then after roughly 2 months of working, Insource promoted me to a safety coordinator. Also, when peak season began to slow down and hours had to be cut, my hours stayed the same (except overtime). I thought it was hilarious that the unproductive/lazy workers complained and threatened management when they went from 48 hours a week to 15 (gee, I wonder why?). They should of considered themselves lucky because from previous experience with other labor companies, they don't cut your hours when times slow. They simply cut you and replace you with another person when peak season returns a year later.I do not look at Insource as a temporary labor agency. From past experience working with Aerotek, regardless of how good you are, they will not hesitate to let you go. At Insource, if you do what is expected from you and do it well, they recognize it with higher pay and promotions (forklift and safety coordinator). I have now been with the company for 7 months and my supervisor told me that I am going to be promoted to a lead.Yes, the work is very difficult at times but also rewarding. Just with my forklift certification, I could leave Insource and go work for a company on a forklift for $13 an hour (after I get more experience). I am not going to do this to Insource because of the opportunities they have given me, but my point is that if you are willing to work hard, you can slowly climb the ladder at Insource and add more positive/leadership experience to your resume.

Medi-Weightloss Clinics of Ballantyne
I have lost a total of 20 lbs so far, still having 5 more to a goal weight. Of this lost, 18 lbs are fat! The program has been beneficial, staff accommodating and facilities very nice. I have yet to experience the phase after Acute to comment on the follow on. Although the process has been costly, it has helped me learn what my body can take in and lose weight, unlike other programs that rely on points, this program stresses the importance of protein. Having to come in and be accountable each week is also very helpful with keeping you on track. I also feel the vitamins and supplements have made me feel better and I am excited to see how my cholesterol has changed. I would recommend the program to anyone!

Medi-Weightloss Clinics of Ballantyne
My most recent experience with Medi was over 3 years ago. I was a new mom and and stuggling with my weight. With the help of Medi, I was able to lose a substancial amount 30+ pounds in the short time I was going to Medi. The staff was amazing, very personable and considerate. Unfortunately I lost my job and was unable to afford to complete my program with Medi. I did however, received wonderful comments about how great I was looking. Some people didnt even recognize me because the weight just melted off. I felt great about myself, my self esteem sky rocketed. I was able to go to the beach in a bikini! And best of all I felt so much better, I was physically fit, and able to be active with my daughter.

Serenity Nurse Aide Academy
Serenity Nurse Aide Academy is an excellent school to obtain a nurse aide certification. The instructor is passionate about teaching well trained nursing assistants and was helpful in ensuring that everyone in our class was prepared for clinical and taking the certification exam. I had to complete this course in order to continue obtaining my RN degree and the instructor also provided me with advice for becoming a successful RN. I would recommend Serenity to anybody that wants to obtain a nurse aide certification.

I've been going here for at least 15 years. I see Dr. Klimas and love him. He listens and has a great personality. Ever since they changed over to their new computer system the wait time has been terrible. My last two appointments I waited at least 30 min to be taken back and then waited at least an hour for the doctor to come in. That's ridiculous when once the doctor comes in you are with him less than 30 minutes. If I didn't like my doctor so much I would change.

After spending 16 years in out side sales, working in different markets,when I found my self looking for employment I was pleasantly surprised that my recruiter Justin took the time to make sure he placed me in a job where my skill sets would be better utilized,so that it made sense for my employer as well as myself. I have never been through staffing agency but can say the job I'm currently working for is exactly what I have been looking for my entire career.

I've been taking my son to C.A.A.A Center for the past 3 years where we see Dr. Hungness and she is a superb Doctor. She took her time to find out what my son medical condition was and has been treating him for his condition ever since. She specializes with kids and you can definitely see that when she works with him. Also the front staff is just wonderful and always greet you with a smile.

Rapha Medical Clinic
Dr. Diji Osinloye truly cares about the patients he sees. I had the pleasure of visiting his office last week and I never felt so welcomed in a Dr's office as I did here at Rapha Medical. His staff is generous and professional and will handle anything that you may need.If you are in the Charlotte area and need Medical Care I suggest you give Rapha Medical a try.

Rapha Medical Clinic
I am not sure what the real beef Morris has with this clinic, but we found our experience to be totally opposite. I am a retired RN so you can imagine that I am very particular about who I trust with my medical care. The staff was very gracious and efficient. Dr Diji spent over an hour with me and listened to my concerns. I highly recommend this clinic.
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.
