Brent John R MD
Ive had 3 surgeries w/Dr. Brent. One outpatient and 2 inpatient @ Ft Walton Medical Center. I have to say honestly I really like Dr. Brents professionalism, he takes his time and really explains thngs thoroughly before and after procedures are performed. I feel very safe and have alot of confidence w/him. I also trust his judgement in referrals that he has given me in regards to my follow up care. If ever I need a surgeon I would most definately go back to Dr. Brent again!

Dr. Mathew M McCune, MD
I saw Dr. McCune in the Milton, Florida office. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Doc was courteous and didn't make me feel awkward as a new patient. He listened to my every word and acknowledged my level of discomfort.

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.
