All I can say is the pharmacist are always so nice and helpful. the girls that work in there are always so kind and helpful and for a person without insurance their prices are good. The only thing I don't like is the parking . sometimes people be trying to back out while people are pulling in the parking lot. I've almost got hit a couple times so I learnt my lesson now I park to the side by Dairy Queen .

Riverside Pharmacy reminds me of going to see an old friend, when you walk through the door you get a smile, howdy, come on in and sit a spell welcome. If you go in there feeling grumpy ,you come out rejuvinated! Mr. Gee, Scotty, and all the girls take care of you just like Family! Occasionally you can go by and you just might get a piece of chocolate cake.
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.
