Doctor Care
I ended up having to go to this urgent care twice in one week, once for allergic reaction and 2nd for fracture ankle. I saw the Dr on my 1st visit, he was very kind and he listened to my needs. Because I've been in the allergic reaction situation before I was able to tell him what worked before and he listened, I liked that. My 2nd time I saw the PA who is always pleasant when I see her. I felt she did a really good job with helping to minimize my pain. My X-rays didn't show anything more than a possible bad sprang, but she did send them off to find it had been fractured. The wonderful MA called me the next day and had me come in for a splint. The nurse was also kind enough to make my Dr appt for me. Doctor's Care is always my first stop before the ER. The online check-in is amazing. My wait haven't been more than 5 mins using that system. Great office and Great staff!!!

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.
