I see Dr Dyess and while she is very nice, getting medication refills is a nightmare. You better start calling 2 weeks before you are out. You must call the dr, the pharm, then the dr, and on and on. I have always been told either the fax is not working, the computer screwed up etc. This has happened everytime. I sometimes must go without blood pressure meds several days before I finally get refills. If you do not go to clinic every 3 months for bloodwork, forget about getting meds even if you are getting bloodwork at a different dr (like a rheumatologist). Thinking about changing clinics for that reason.

Very pleasant doctor. Helpful, caring, and sincerely concerned for his patient. Will do everything possible to avoid performing surgery unless absolutely necessary for the patient. I will recommend Dr. Moriarity anytime someone needs a Neuro-surgeon.

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.
