Salvati Carl MD FACP FAAN
I tripped backward and went to JFK ER they gave me a catscan & MRI they said all is fine but followup with a neurologist. I went to Salvati because he was available. He said JFK should have given me an MRI WITH contrast& prescribed 3 T3 MRIs These are the highest level MRI and the place he sent me sent me to 3 different locations for each test because they didn't have the machine he wanted. They are also very costly copay! In the interim I spoke to my primary, an internist at Cleveland Clinic, he found it strange to have3 but said since he prescribed them do it but felt it was unlikely there was anything or JFK would have admitted me. I went thru the tests saw Salvati that week He said "theres nothing wrong" If you use Cleveland Clinic anyway if you feel you want to see another neuro Dr there is one there "I recommend" but it's not necessary. I had all my tests sent to my primary at CC . I happened to have an annual wellness exam the following week anyway. My primary said having looked at the tests he felt it was a case of OVERKILL to have all those high radiation tests and as he expected here was nothing and in addition he knows the Dr, that Salvati recommended if I needed to see him but thought it would be a waste of time since the tests show NO PROBLEM. I thought the case was closed until yesterday when I found that I had been waiting to obtain a new life ins. company to gibe me a new policy since my last one of 15 years had expired. They contacted me said they saw I had a "FALL" had all these tests contacted Salvati who sent my records to them saying I should see another neurologist and because I had not there are new questions from them! I explained how it went down and by the way Salvati called my house the same day I was seeing my primary @ Cleveland Cliniic and told my husband "I looked at your wife's tests again she definitely need not have a follow up neuro Dr., bottom line he never put that in my record,ins. declined.Staff says TOO BAD lawsuit 2 follow!

Bruce Berenson MD
We recently found Dr. Bruce Berenson as a new primary for my 88-year-old mother with severe Dementia and heart disease. Her previous doctor was nice enough but misdiagnosed back to back infections and getting calls returned were difficult.We only wish we had found him earlier as he is clearly a standout among great doctors. He was able to determine many her issues and those he was not 100% sure of, he directed us to the right specialists. As a result nearly a month of my mother's pain and suffering was ended, though if we had Dr. Berenson previously, that month would have likely only been a few days.Thank you Dr. B!(I apologize as this is a review I've posted elsewhere...but it's the truth and I want to be sure other patients discover Dr. Berenson)

Doctor & Nurse Practitioner are great. The office staff, however, can improve on organization. Some issues I've had in the past year are: sending in referrals to the insurance companies for specialists, having medical records sent 6 months (and 500 phone calls) later, etc. Now, I understand the office is constantly busy and often alot of interruptions, and multitasking. I do understand. Overall, a very good physician

My mom-in-law very much enjoyed seeing Dr Lindeberg. He is very professional and always provided a good plan to manage her diverticulitis.

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.
