Prieto, Rafael MD
Dr. Prieto is a fantastic physician. He listens & takes into careful consideration many variables, when approaching a patient's condition. He is attentive, thoughtful, helpful, & practical. I have painful/ long-term issues. due to ongoing surgeries. However, I have been complying with Dr.Prieto's care plan (I have changed my dietary habits, lifestyle, etc). I am hopeful that I will experience a full recovery & try to maintain a positive attitude. I will continue to seek his professional guidance, -- It is difficult to live with immobility & pain. Dr.Prieto is careful about prescribing medications. I do believe that there are a great deal of people that battle with chemical dependency issues. He probably very aware of the problem. Especially, within his field/ profession. He is a really good doctor & he genuinely cares about his patients.

Centerstone has given me a new outlook on life. several times over. they have been there for me with open arms every time i decide that i have gotten "better" and quit going to treatment and then decide to come limping back. they have been there for me with zero judgement. they have been there with counseling and someone to prescribe the proper medication, and someone to listen to me when things havent worked out for me. they have also been there to help me as much as they possibly can financially. they have been through the worst and the best moments of my life. i cannot have asked for better treatment. i am very thankful to have found a safe haven such as this

The office staff is very courteous and helpful. Dr. McIntosh took the time to talk to me and help me understand what was going on with me. I trust her diagnosis and her plan of action for the best results. I look forward to going to my next visit. I have shared my experience with my friends and hope if they need a Doctor they will call Dr. McIntosh.

Love this place, with the exception of ONE thing! Dr. Pike is amazing and so is Trina. They both listen to their patients. They do not have enough appointments and their hours are like banker hours instead of doctor ones. I haven't had to beg them to work me in if I am urgent.....but I would hope they would make an exception.

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.
