Edgar, Ellen I, MD
From the moment i arrived for my appointment, the assistant was thoroughly prepared. She had all the forms I needed to complete, and was very friendly and accommodating. Within five 10-15 minutes of completing the forms, Dr. Edgar was available to see me. Dr. Edgar was very patient and thorough in the process of evaluating me. She asked many questions to better understand the purpose for my visit, she addressed thoroughly every question I asked. She performed a thorough evaluation, answering all my questions. Additionally, she was honest in letting me know what tests need to be done to further treat me. Dr. Edgar is certainly a Doctor I would visit again. i would defiantly recommend her to all my friends and family!

Katz, Victoria, MD
Dr. Victoria Katz is an amazing physician, I love the team at NYAC from secretaries to Anna PA to Julia my nurse. I am so thankful to them for giving me back my mobility and providing me with the best possible care, where others have missed Dr. Katz and her staff were able to identify my problems, listen to my complaints and identify the plan of care. I absolutely love them and their genuine care for their patients. Yes I have to wait sometimes but I would rather wait for someone who cares than someone that does not. Make sure you see Dr. Katz she will definitely help you!

Raphael Reiss MD
Dr. Reiss delivered all of my children. I have always found him to be kind, understanding, and above all very gentle. He was quite reassuring when I had a pregnancy scare and really helped me through it. He is very patient and takes the time to answer any and all questions. I love to watch his face light up each time he hears a new baby's heart beat as if it is the first time he ever had that experience! It's too bad Dr. Reiss is no longer delivering babies, but I plan to continue using him as my gynecologist and would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Simon Shimon Lipetz, MD
Best doctor I've ever gone to. So charming and polite. He does like to run tests, but it's because he cares about his patients, not because he wants to make more money. The other review on here is RIDICULOUS!!!! He always gives samples to save me money on my meds, and he does whatever he can to work with my insurance. He genuinely cares about his patients. Only complaint is the long wait in the waiting room- but he's well worth the wait.. he takes his time to make sure each patient is given the attention that they need.

Shemen, Larry, MD
saved my life. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer 15 years ago. no treatment for the type of cancer I had other than surgery. fifteen years later and I am still here. I see dr. shemen four times a year for exams and get tested at appropriate inyervals. He explains everything to me and more importantly, makes sure I understand. He is a marvelous doctor and a great man.

I've been treated by Dr. Reiss during the past six years for all my gynecological needs. Besides being knowledgeable he is a good listener, caring and a true gentleman. I would definitely recommend him.

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.
