I used to take my daughter to seeing Dr Sinha excellent doctor and he's not there anymore I need to locate him.anyway I set up an appointment for my daughter with a doctor William someone call me on the day of the appt at 8:45am and keep in mind that my appointment was at 9:30am I understand that stuff happens but I still think that's unprofessional to call you the day of the appointment to reschedule and then when rescheduling you can schedule it on the day that would accommodate the patient and when I talk with someone about setting up the appointment when I needed to for my daughter first of all let me say the person was very unprofessional talking on the phone she act like she didn't want to schedule an appointment for me she didn't have any type of phone niceness at all she made me seem like as she didn't care if I set up an appointment or not she just didn't care at all so I decided to never ever come to that location and to take my business elelsewhere.
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.
