Buddy, you just had a bad day that day. We all have them. I have been with them since they moved from Providence Rd. They, even though my wonderful Dr is Santa aka Dr Marks, are great.Merrilee, Natalie, and the younger people Merrilee goes out of her way to give them a good, smart start. After all SMART young people working and learning make great Nurses and Doctors. In total complete honesty they saved my life. You know how? Never giving up. If I wasn't doing what I was supposed to be doing, Boom!!!! they (Merrilee) told me to get busy and do what Dr Marks had prescribed. To me they are the best.They all talked, scolded me and really really save my life TODAY. I am so thankful I have them and feel like part of the family there. Today I am healthier than ever, so get better. The Lady doctor or Lady doctor practioner are the best, Dr Marks is a straight shooter as Merrilee and Natalie are when they want to see you it's like the principal's office.So get better and don't give up on them.

My first experience went well a few months later I return to be looked at again only to be judged and told I'm a liar because she couldn't locate were I wrote down my info about my self when my mother and I discussed the fact to write my whole medical history down. Being a serving burn victim this was the second worst thing I've gone through to feel the Ora or vibe of the doctor change because she then goes to judge me .I never got a call back about my results much less I don't think the doctor (she) could care to turn them in .I like places that run more professional then this clinic the underpaid staff is wonderful the she doctor not so much !
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.
