Winikur, Lawrence J, MD
I've been a patient of Dr. Winikur's since 2011. He and his staff are the most caring and professional staff I've seen in a long time. Dr W. is, and this is my opinion, a master in pain management. He gives you time to talk and not only gets to know you as a whole , but also manages your pain and knows what you are feeling. He is my all time favorite Dr. I totally recommend him.

Dr. Thomas Mendoza Alabanza, MD
Not a very caring office. The doctor is ok but the staff are all but professional. No info on newly diagnosed issues..just a mess and always crowded. Felt really uneasy in is office as I am a young woman with chronic pain issues and felt very judged by staff..
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.
