It is unacceptable how this dr and their office takes care of people. I heard he use to be a great dr. Well this is how great he mother was having shortness of breath and couldn't even walk more than 10 ft without being exhausted. They gave her some recovery meds and sent her home. She became worse and worse so she went back. They tested her for copd and said she didn't have it. They also scheduled her some imaging procedures for the next week. THE NEXT WEEK!!! She couldn't breath!!! This was a 4 week process and finally we said forget it! She went to a specialist and found out she was in stage 2 of copd. They had also been giving her the wrong meds! I have worked with Vanderbilt for years and we would never send someone home who couldn't breath!! Oh and I almost forgot they actually tested her for copd 2 years ago and they said it was negative. Seriously! The test rests their machines said and her specialist's were completely different! So apparently they do not have accurate testing instruments! Any type of medical equipment should be inspected and maintained to be accurate! And today my sister had to go to the er because the test she was suppose to have today was cancelled because dr sriv s office forgot to send the paperwork. She has been sick for a month and is now severely dehadrated. This clinic should be ashamed of themselves!
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.
