Dr. Vijayalakshmi Reddy Ragoor, MD
Dr. Ragoor scores a 5+! She is awesome! The office staff however, has brought the rating down to a 2. POOR POOR SERVICE. Didn't get the preapproval and order my med for a month then recvieved a call from ins co as courtesty call, the got on the line with Dr office, then the office staff left a rude message on my voicemail. UNPROFESSIONAL. Said you called the ins co ( which I did not) also said you were to call Dr **** to make an appt ( they told me they were doing it-they even wrote it on the script not to call-they were calling)

Only had one appt so far but I'd recommend him to anyone, he seen my then 2 year old and was really great with him, they also sent me his evaluation report and I was able to understand all of it! Anyone looking for a place to take their child I would recommend you calling him.
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.
