Durango Urgent Care
While visiting my daughter in Durango I visited your facility to address a respiratory and sore throat issue. Fromm the receptionist, to the nurse and PA that treated me I was very impressed with your knowledge and human touch. I had even lost my insurance card and the receptionist was very helpful in printing out a copy for me. Service was also timely! Two days after my visit the nurse called to follow up on my condition. Thank you for your concern and attention.

Durango Urgent Care
While on vacation in Durango, I visited your facility to have my arm evaluated after a fall. Although it seemed very busy, I was seen in a timely manner. When being treated the doctor, nurse and x-ray tech were all very nice and expressed concern. Everything went very well and I was very pleased.
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.
