Badia Alegandro MD
I am an active and athletic person who I suffered a fall and hurt my shoulder to the point that I ended up with a frozen shoulder and could not even lift my arm to get dressed. I came to see Dr. Badia and was immediately pleased to know the center could do my X-rays and even MRI on the spot. Dr. Badia has a state of the art clinic with all modern digital equipment. He even showed me my MRI digital pictures and pin pointed my problem on the spot. He perform shoulder surgery on my and the very next day I was able to lift my arm that for months was stiff and unable to move. Weekly therapy at http://rehabintegra.com was also big contributor to my recovery.Today I am back to my normal activities and hard core workouts; thank you Dr. Badia and BHSC Staff, you brought me back to health and even stronger than before!

Lots of doctors appear to have that attitude, but what counts is the quality of work done. I've had many doctors recommend him as one of the best, and there are plenty of past and present patients that feel he did a great job. I don't know what your situation was, and after all, he's a doctor, not God, and accidents will happen. He's not there to be your friend, but to tend to your injury. Who can make a difference between you dying or living? A doctor! He has neither the time nor the patience to deal with your feelings.
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.
