Englewood Primary Care & Walk-In
Worst medical establishment I have ever been to. Called ahead to make sure I could be seen. Signed in at 2pm. Waited until 5:05pm to be seen. There were only three people in front of me. One of those three people had low blood sugar. They asked the receptionist if they should go to the hospital because he was not doing very well. She said that she would send a nurse out. They never send a nurse out and they left to go to the Emergency Room. They were there for 2 hours before leaving. I hope that the man is ok. They didn't even pretend to care about his wellbeing. I wanted to leave so bad, but only needed a Z pak to help get over a sinus infection. So then the Dr did see me for less than 5 minutes. If it only takes 5 minutes to see a paitient, why did I wait for 3 hours with only 3 people in front of me, one of which left???So anyway they said they would call in my prescription. They did not call in my script. So now I am no better than I was before. All the dr's are closed. I wish I would have gone somewhere else so that I could at least have the antibiotics in my system and could possibly feel better tomorrow. I hope that the older gentleman is ok.
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.
