I have to say, cudos! I have felt terrible for a while but could never explain symptoms, etc. I went in with breathing problems. The woman (i can't remember her name) suggested i go to my ob and have my hormones checked... THANK YOU!! I probably would've waited another year to go. I scheduled my appointment and have since been diagnosed with a 8 cm dermoid. MYSTERY SOLVED!!!! Because the ct scan, ultrasound, etc does not show where it is attached to the ovary, i will now see an oncologist. #relievedpatient

I have used this facility twice, once in 2013 and recently. I had excellent service, in and out within an hour and that included xrays, I even received a follow-up call the next day. The receptionists weren't very personable but they were not rude. I try to keep in mind that they are the ones who catch the brunt of patients who are sick and hurting who feel that they "urgently" need to see a doctor not fill out patient information (which is necessary). If needed I will use there services again.

This was the best doc in a box clinic I have ever been too. I was seen by the doctor within 20 minutes. She was very thorough during the exam and asked lots of questions about previous conditions. Blood work and X-rays were quick as well. I highly recommend this office.

I enjoyed this place and so did my daughter. The other review below is confusing though....Fairhope has only been open for a few weeks and your foot has had this problem for a year so you must have mistaken your location.
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.
