I have been seeing Dr Ravi Dhawale. He is one of the best endo I have seen and very knowledgeable.The nurses there are worst and seems like they do not really care about any patients health.Recently I ran out of Insulin (I am type-1 diabetic and cannot get by with out insulin) and when I called pharmacy they said my prescriptions were expired.I tried to get prescription refill through calls and after no use I stopped by at the office and talked to the receptionist.The receptionist at front desk was really helpful and said the prescription should be ready be end of the day.After 1 day the pharmacy still not received the prescription and when I call the Nurse number, it just goes to VM or the call is kept holding all the time.I had to skip work again drive to office and receptionist listened to me patiently and asked what I need and worked with the Nurse.She was also able to get me samples to get by for time being and said since Dr was out of office the Nurse could not refill my prescription on time.Wow !!!! that was nice but I wish the nurse has the courtesy to just give me a call back and explain the situation.I am happy with the Dr and receptionist but I think the nurses need to improve and be more helpful to patients in emergency situations at least.My rating:Dr Ravi Dhwale 5 starsReceptionist 5 starsNurse 1 starI am rating it 2 starts because of multiple office trips for my prescription refills.

THE PROPER OFFICE NUMBER IS (614)762-7312 . I am very happy with the level of care I get at this clinic. I have spastic diplegia Cerebral Palsy, spinal stenosis, a bulging disc and arthritis,and have worked with other clinics in the past. At the other clinics, I would go in, sit for an hour or two (very painful with my aforementioned issues)and then be handed my prescriptions,AFTER I paid an office copay of fifty dollars regardless of the fact that I never even went back to an examined room, much less be seen by a doctor or nurse. Here, I am asked comprehensive questions about the effectiveness of my current treatment, my ability to attend to self care, and basic quality of life. The staff here seems to really understand that my goal isn't to procure medication, but to live as full and satisfying a life despite my diagnosis. In addition to medication, I am given prescriptions for PT, and other treatments,such as using heat and/or cold,are discussed. I am given a drug test every visit (all patients are) which comforts me in knowing we are all being monitored for proper med use. I am very comfortable here, and after fifteen years, I am walking better since become a patient in January 2015.

I had my eyelids and jawline done with Dr. Smith about a month ago. My brother had referred me to his office. He is a physician and his daughter was a patient of Dr. Smith’s. Dr. Smith was the only doctor I had a consult with because he was extremely professional, warm, and accommodating. His office is well-run and everything is perfect. So far, I am thrilled with my results. The process was exactly as he had predicted. Everyone was available to me if I had questions or concerns. I had very minimal pain and an uneventful recovery. I recovered quickly and even a little earlier than anticipated. I will recommend Dr. Smith to absolutely everybody. It is a marvelous office and if you’re interested in having any type of facial surgery, he does a fabulous job.

I saw Dr. Smith for a rhinoplasty on December 23rd. Another doctor recommended Dr. Smith to my father. I decided to have the rhinoplasty because my nose was not completely straight. I was also having a lot of problems breathing; one of my nasal passages was 99% blocked. Dr. Smith is very educated and nice. You can tell he loves what he’s doing. I love my results so far. I can breath now. It’s also nice to have a beautiful, perfect nose. During the recovery, I was expecting more pain, but everything went smooth. I recommend Dr. Smith’s rhinoplasty to anyone with breathing problems.

Dr. Norman Schwartz is, by far, the BEST doctor I have ever come in contact with!!! My husband and I both see him. We both feel comfortable with him, he cares about his patients, but is also down-to, earth and easy to talk to!!! He is NOT one of those doctors that breezes in and out of the room in ten seconds, leaving you with unanswered questions/concerns. Over the past month, my husband has had a few issues with his diabetes and the levels of several vitamins. Dr. Schwartz took the time to text and call to check on him on 3 separate occasions!!! He is an excellent physician!!!

Samuel, Milroy J, MD
My wife was pregnant with our 3rd child and I lost my job. My doctor that I had been going to before Dr Milroy Samuel, told me that I had to pay $4000 cash or he wouldn't see us. We had only 3 weeks left in the pregnancy and we were desperate! I was unemployed and we were expected to pay $4000?!! We called 30 different obgyn's and only one would see us and that was Dr Samuel! His office has a patient assistance program that no other office has. Dr Milroy delivered our baby a week after we joined his practice! We would and do recommend him to our church family and friends.

Dr. Smith performed my rhinoplasty a few weeks ago. I found him by doing some online research and through Google. I needed to do this procedure quickly, since I only had like three weeks before I was coming back to Japan, as I’m in the navy.. Dr. Smith will show you a picture of how he wants to do your nose, so you know exactly what will be done in the surgery. I am really in love with what he did. I look the same, but the changes Dr. Smith did are just awesome. Nobody can tell the difference. I’m really happy wish the outcome of my rhinoplasty with Dr. Smith.

OhioHealth Neurological Physicians: Dr. Gregory Balturshot, MD
I am 84 years old and had many concerns about surgery, however I could not continue with my pain level that was so severe. Dr. Balturshot settled my concerns and worries on my 1st meeting with him. It has been 3 weeks since my back surgery and my pain level is 0-1. I cannot thank Dr. Balturshot enough for helping me. He has treated me with such kindness and compassion. The long wait was at the Portsmouth office where he just started seeing patients - thankful for office visit close to home.

Dr. Deborah L Cole-Sedivy, DO
If anyone is looking for a great place for a microderm and chemical peel, Monarch Health is the place to go. I purchased a groupon and found Dr. Cole-Sedivy. Her staff is very friendly and very well informed on the lastes and up to date cosmetic procedures. they got me started on the Obagi product line and love the results. They offer many seminars and patient gatherings throughout the year. Those are great to network and hear about other patient information. A great experience.

About three or four months ago, I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Smith. This was in February. Another doctor referred us to Dr. Smith’s office. He is nice, calm, and knows what he is doing. I am very pleased with my results so far. The best part has to be that my nose is more symmetrical and even feels better after I had the little bump taken off the top. I have already recommended other people to Dr. Smith; my aunt has actually come in and had some things done.
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.
