Westview Urgent Care
I hate to put it like this on here, but here it is, the real deal. If you're a opiate addict looking for REAL recovery from active use and maintenance, this is the absolute BEST Suboxone treatment clinic EVER. First off, the place is quaint and very clean, but comfortable...good vibes from every staff member, always. They are so friendly and nonjudgmental, and treat you like a real human and not just some junkie, nor is this office ran like a script mill (like many Suboxone clinics ARE), the rates are reasonable for anyone, (even self pay with no insurance!!) AND they're always willing to take my phone call, answer my questions in full, and they have awesome business hours (7 days a week 9-9!!) and have NEVER turned me down for an appointment no matter how many times I needed to reschedule or how many times I've been running late lol...every person that works here (ESPECIALLY the skeleton crew) has just been so kind, open-minded and compassionate to me (and my kids!) and I love you guys all so much for that. This place saved me from myself and brought me back to life. And I could NEVER thank you enough. And just for the record, I work this program with NA meetings, a sponsor AND the 12 steps. And I've been given a second chance at life...by a doctor that believes in me no matter what. :)
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.
