Castillo, Elquis MD
Very upset with the way things were handled with my mother. We went to see Dr. Castillo to get results from a biopsy that she had a few days earlier. He told us that she could be dead within a week then said he would be admitting her to the hospital indefinitely. She was released by him the next day and said she was only put in because she was dehydrated which was never mentioned the day before. He caused a lot of anxiety, stress, and confusion that could have been avoided. Really needs to think about how he delivers bad news to people.

The friendliest staff. They get to know you by name. They listen to what you have going on instead of just hurrying through a list of symptoms. Dr. Hood has to be the best physcian I have ever seen. He is interested in your life well-being, not just trying to get you in and out in the shortest time possible. He listens to you, talks to you, and helps you, not just physically but emotionally also. He has his own x-ray, his own lab for some simple tests to be run, and also his own surgical area for minor things! Absolutely the best!

Absolute Respiratory Care
I have been using Absolute Respiratory Care for just over 3 years now and could not be happier with their service. They will go way out of their way to help you in anyway they can and are some of the nicest people I have ever dealt with. They are very knowledgeable and have been doing this for many many years. They have all the different bands and types of supplies for c-pap and bi-pap. Don't know where I would be in my treatment of sleep apnea if I had not found them. I would give them 6 stars if I could.

Sledge Webb Dr
Dr. Sledge is patient, careful, good humored, and attentive. He has been my primary care physician for more than twenty years and I rely upon him heavily. More than many doctors, Dr. Sledge LISTENS and EXPLAINS and always considers his patients' needs and abilities. In addition, he has a stable, loyal, and pleasant staff who share his devotion to their patients' welfare. IF you can get added to his list, he ought to be your first choice.

Herrera Medical
Have been suffering for 4 years, dozens of trips to doctors and ER, lost 40 lbs, half my hair, most of my teeth, severe pain and could not eat enough to keep up my strength, mostly bedridden. He was the ONLY doctor to treat my pain. Gained 25 lbs and a partial life. DEA took him down-been in bed for 3 months, lost 20lbs, suffering and waiting to die. He is missed.

Love Dr.Herrera. He is very caring and listens to his patients. He has a wonderful bedside manner and takes the time to actually treat you and not just your symptoms. His nurse is very nice as well. So glad that I finally found a doctor who cares about me and isn't just rushing to get me out of the office and charge me a grand.

My favorite doc on the planet. Never met a doc, or anyone else, who seemed to genuinely care about me. If I can keep him forever I will! He's a wonderful person. If you haven't tried to see him yet I encourage you to try him, you'll be very happy with his open mind & his big heart.

The best physician in NE Alabama. He is not arrogant and actually listens, wouldn't make it without him. He is great to say the least . Excellent "Bedside manner" . His nurse is great as well. Thank God for physicians like him are still around....

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.
