Dr.Degler has been my doctor ever since he replaced my old doctor who moved out of state, he's young & has the new up to date knowledge. He's been here a few yrs.now & I'm very satisfied with him,he's not one of those doctors who makes u feel like ur on an assembly line he takes the time to listen to me & never rushes me out he actually ask u if u have any questions which is getting rare now days.I have recommended him to family members & would recommend him to anyone looking for a good doctor.

I been going to them for years and there always friendly and attack the problems right away. There the best at what they do and i would never change my doctor even if there was a rude staff member i would just tell the doctors and let them handle it accordingly but in my experience the staff seems to be just like any other staff.. friendly and attentive. you might have caught someone having a bad day or something. We all have one of those ya know.

Dr. Kayed is a wonderful doctor. He is very knowledgeable and caring. I went to see Dr. Kayed about a female medical condition. He explained all of my options, and I decided to have surgery. Dr. Kayed did an amazing job! I am very pleased with my experience, and I highly recommend Dr. Kayed.

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.
