Phillips, Michael S, MD
There is a lack of commuincation. The office doesn't return calls and can't work effectively with Savon Pharmacies.I called with some advancing sysmptoms and asked what I should do, The office (assume the Nurse) said she would talk with the Dr....they never called backI went through the refill process as instructed. It has been 31/2 days and I'm still waiting for a refill. The office says they didn't receive the request and the pharmacy says they sent the request...not the first time this has happened!Dr .Phillips has a great bedside manner and seems to be an effective Pain Mgmt. Professional. I believe he would not want his customers treated this way. If he knew what was happening I think/hope he would fix the problem.If I was not afar along as I am in resolving my pain issues I would go to another Clinic.Since this review (above) the office staff and communication with me has improved 100%...Thanks for listening to your customer!

She was very nice & made me feel comfortable. She could tell I was nervous cause it had been several years, ok 7, since I had seen my OB/GYN. She took the time to talk to me. She fixed my problem. She was great.

Nice but the facility kind of feels like a welfare clinic. However, the doctors and nurses are great
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.
