They were very friendly, but very unprofessional when if came to valid information. Was told that to run specific tests would be covered by my insurance, found out 5 months later when I was served a collection letter for $190 that it WAS NOT covered by my insurance. Was also told to come in for an additional text, when I showed up for my appointment, they had neglected to tell me it would cost $200 up front for the procedure. I do not carry that sort of money around with me, so ended up wasting my time to take off from work for no reason at all, since I was unable to pay for the procedure.

The Doctor's that I have seen are great. The nursing staff is great. HOWEVER, the front office staff are rude and have a snippy attitude, seriously they need to realize that patients need to be treated nice and not called rude and ignored. And charging a $5.00 fee for paperwork to be filled out is crazy. I can see if there is 20 pages but one for one page. I will be looking for a different doctor, I don't need to be treated like that or nicked and died to death.

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.
