My only suggestion would be to check with Harvard Park surgery center re costs before telling someone 'oh, you have Medicare supplement,so it will not cost anything.'. I was just glad I happen to have my card with me for '$285 co-pay' before each surgery'. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the care.

Dr. Hansen is the best! He is very upfront and honest, which I guess rubs some people the wrong way. But do you want a doctor that sugar coats everything, or one that actually tells you what's up? Booking appointments is easy and they get you in and out on time if not early! I love this place!

I have been with State Farm ever since I got my driver license at 16 (over 20 years ago) and I can't imagine going anywhere else. Bruce has always been there when I needed questions answered and his staff is always helpful and efficient. I highly recommend them!

I can honestly say that Dr. Wm. Richheimer was an excellent choice for my catarac surgery. He was so personable and very professional. I was able to see distant, which I had not been able to do for over 50 some years. What a wonderful feeling.

I wish all surgeries were as easy - or as successful as having cataracts removed from each eye by Dr. Richheimer. The process truly was painless, and Dr. Richheimer was caring, competent and compassionate. I would highly recommend him.

MHEI provided excellent from the first visit until the the last follow up appointment. The LASIK surgery was fast, accurate and provided better that expected results. 20/15 vision has changed my life! Thanks for everything.

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.
