Dr. Bret B Dirks, MD
I have had back problems since my teens, and a more recent back injury made it a lot worse. I also have arthritis. Dr. Dirks suggested injections for me, which I was reluctant to get because I get really scared and they haven't worked for me in the past. His injections are in a totally different place than the injections I've had before, and they have helped so much! He is very nice, easy to talk to, and I believe he sincerely cares about his patients. He also performed a large surgery on my mom's back and she is doing awesome. His staff is very nice, I highly recommend!

I had my surgery in Dec 2011, had L4 AND L5 fused. Everyone in the office was very professinal and courteous.You could not ask for a better Dr. than Dr. Dirks . He was very helpful in giving me all the information I needed to make the choice to have the surgery done. He and all his staff were very kind and respectfull to me and my husband. I would and have recommended Dr. Dirks to people I know that have back problems.I want to say thank you to Dr. Dirks for treating me so well.

Burn, Timothy F, MD
I have been seeing Dr Burn's for a little of 3 years now. He is amazing, patient and kind. Takes the time to listen to everything. He bedside manner is one of the best I've seen in many years! I worked in healthcare for 15+ years and have been around many doctors. He is the most thorough doctor I have been to.

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.
