We are blessed to have the doctors and staff at Pedatric Partners in Gastonia see our daughter. We have never had anything but wonderful experiences. After tonight, I have to brag on our visit. I called after 7. It is a Friday night. As soon as I told the receptionist (Melissa) what was wrong with my daughter, she said to bring her in right then. We hardly waited. We saw Dr. Baker. This was our second visit with him, and I just can't say enough wonderful things about this man. He is patient and gentle. The first time we saw him was a week ago when we thought my daughter just had a bad cold but unfortunately, her condition quickly progressed over the last week. He and his amazing nurse (I hate I can't think of her name!) took such excellent care of my princess. When I walked out of the room and was terribly upset while the nurses worked with my daughter, Dr. Baker consoled me and continued to check on me to make sure I was okay. On a late Friday night while they were at work away from their family, they were still able to show such compassion and warmth to me and my daughter. That means more to me than they could possibly know. ...We have also seen Dr. Alexander and Dr. Petree and they are EXCELLENT too! Thank you to everyone at Caramont Pediatric Partners Gastonia!

I would recommend highly. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. They also made the procedure pain free. I was very surprised that even after the procedure that I was barely sore. They were good to explain what to expect the next few days after the procedure was done. That was very important so that once I was at home I did not freak out or think that I was having some type of complications. I have been very pleased with the care and treatment given. Everything and everyone was very professional

I have had a bad experience with a very rude nurse over my daughters care. So I was skeptical to try a practice like this ever again. This place has now changed my view on urgent care locations. They have bent over backwards to take care of my son. I would say above and beyond what was necessary. Because of them, I have changed my view on this type of healthcare. If you need urgent care this is the place to go for great treatment.

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.
