Thomas P. McHugh, MD
Dr. McHugh is a wonderful doctor and I am so happy with my results. I went around to several other doctors, and to be mature, I won't comment on the experiences there, but out of all, Dr. McHugh, his wife and staff were the most friendly and kind. I was greeted by the most friendly and helpful receptionist, when I was booking my appointment on the phone, I was so amazed at the knowledge she had regarding the procedures I wanted to schedule. At the consultation, which was for liposuction and reduction, Dr. McHugh did not rush through the consultation. He took his time to explain in full detail the procedures that I was interested in, and I had a list of questions, in which he answered them all. I was a little nervous, because of previous consultations elsewhere that did not put me at ease, but Dr. McHugh really put me at ease. He did mention that it would be a good idea, but I did not have to get Lympatic Drainage massages as needed. At the conclusion of the consultation, I got to meet his beautiful wife, Katherine. I have heard negative things about her, but those negative things are so untrue. She is the most down to earth walking Barbie Doll! Great sense of humor! She presented me with the pricing information of the surgery and lymphatic massages. I decided at the consultation that Dr. McHugh was my surgeon for my surgeries, but was short on finances, so Katherine's sister, very friendly and personable, assisted me in getting financed with Care Credit.It was 5 minutes to closing, but she did not rush me out and also worked on getting me codes to make a claim on my insurance for my reduction. After my surgery, his nurse, Ashley, called me every day to check on my progress and was a great support when Dr. McHugh was unable to speak on the phone to address my healing concerns. I do not regret using Dr. McHugh, and I will be using him again in the near future for a necklift!

Sacred Heart Emergency Center
On Friday,May 11, 2012, while visiting my sister in Houston, I experienced severe NSAIDS adverse effects of excruciating abdominal pain and spams; continuous projectile vomiting, dehydration, and blood pressure of 164/114. Within less than five minutes, Pam, the RN on duty, escorted me into an examination room and in the epitome of compassion, empathy, and professionalism, immediately performed a very thorough assessment of my vitals signs; detailed and extensive inquiry pertaining to my current pain, and relevant medical history . Three minutes later, Dr. Mark IM, (ER MD on that day) assessed and evaluated my excruciating abdominal pain and promptly rendered appropriate medical treatment which consisted of: IV fluids,(for dehydration due to excessive projectile vominiting); Lab work (for purpose of obtaining baseline of my electrolytes); and IV medications for abdominal distress, spams, vomiting. I arrived at Sacred Heart 24 Hour Emergency Center at 9:30AM and by 11:30AM was home, resting quietly. In addition, Dr. IM referred me to a GI specialist. I was a RN for 23 years and worked many speciality units, including ER. I am blatantly honest to proclaim that all Emergency Centers, ER, and Urgent Care Centers MUST AT LEAST ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE THE OUTSTANDING LEVEL of PROFESSIONALISM, INCLUSIVE of RENDERING EMPATHETIC and COMPASSIONATE CARE to ALL THEIR PATIENTS. Therefore, it would behoove other Emergency Centers in Houston to model Sacred Heart 24 Hour Emergency Center. Lucila Leal, School Psychologist

Mattioli Vision Professionals, PA
Dr. Mattioli did my sister's LASIK a few years ago and thankfully I was able to find him at his new practice.I've had a consult done at another LASIK location but they weren't as welcoming and thorough as Dr. Mattioli. He sat down and discussed every finding and actually explained it in basic terms from my first consult up until the day of my surgery.His team is outstanding. They specialize in what they do and of course are darn good at it. I rarely leave an office knowing everyone's names or what their personalities are like outside of work, but Laura, Jonah, and Janet make an extra effort to have conversations with you to take the ease out of having a boring eye exam. Can you say team LONGEVITY? They've been with him for over 8 years!Lastly, I have to briefly touch base on his technology for all you tech enthusiasts out there. The practice is fairly new so that also means new equipment and newest laser technology! Your check-in paperwork is completed on an ipad. All of your test data from the eye exams are mapped out on a computer screen so the Dr. can go over and point out what's normal and abnormal within your exam. My LASIK procedure took less than 20 minutes and I was able to see the wall clock for the first time without glasses in 17 years! Thanks Dr. Mattioli - Laura - Janet - Jonah!

There are no words to express the level of excellence provided by Dr. Yankelove, Brenda and the entire staff during my Lasik procedure. From the very first day of my Lasik consultation with Brenda Castillo, to the day of my post-op appointment, every step met and exceeded all expectations that I had. Dr. Yankelove was beyond knowledgeable and talented in his field, and it felt very reassuring to get such an important procedure done with an expert of his sort. Brenda was extremely personable and approachable throughout the process and made me feel comfortable and at east throughout. Moreover, they are competitively priced and provide options to meet your financial needs/capabilities. They use the best technology and was a painless procedure, and I had fantastic results the very same night! I would recommend anyone and everyone to this facility if they are considering Lasik- you are in the best hands with a friendly and capable staff. Thanks to Dr. Yankelove and the entire team!

El Centro De Corazon 4
Holistically based healthcare for the whole family--couldn't be happier with the amazing physicians, entire staff and conveniently structured comprehensive services.It's so nice not to have to have to leave the neighborhood for any of our basic healthcare needs. My husband and I can visit our primary care doctor, bring the kids to their pediatrician and all see the same dentist--all under the same roof. Love all the specialized services and programs El Centro offers too. Finally, the "extras" like nutritional counseling for my stepson who has Type 1 Diabetes and behavioral health services for our little ADHD-bots are easily and conveniently accessible too.And the best part of all: Everything is not only available in one place, just down the street, but our private insurance is accepted too! No more searching for and traveling to providers on all sides of town... Thank you, El Centro--truly and from the bottom of my HEART!

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY OR HOW TO START. THERE IS NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW BLESSED I AM TO HAVE FOUND A DOCTOR LIKE FARHINA. SHE LISTENS TO ALL OF MY CONCERNS. I HAD SURGERY WITH HER AND I KNEW THAT EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO BE GREAT. SHE IS KIND, FRIENDLY, AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE. I LOST TRACK OF HER BECAUSE I CHANGED JOBS AND INSURANCE AND THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, I WONDER IF I WOULD EVER FIND A DOCTOR LIKE HER. I WENT WITHOUT SEEING A OB/GYN FOR ABOUT FOUR YEARS. NOW THAT I HAVE FOUND HER I CAN'T STOP THANKING GOD THAT I FOUND HER AGAIN. ALL OF MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS HAVE HEARD OF HER CAUSE I CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT HER. I WANT THEM TO HAVE A DOCTOR THAT TAKES THE TIME TO LISTEN AND UNDERSTANDS THEIR NEEDS AND CONCERNS. I WANT THEM TO FEEL SECURE WITH AND UNDERSTOOD WITH THEIR DOCTORS AND THAT'S EXACTLY HOW I FEEL IN THE HANDS OF IMTIAZ FARHINA.. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR KINDNESS, GENTLE HANDS AND SOFT PATIENT VOICE.

Clinca Corazon Hispano
We moved to Houston three years ago, and I got sick right after we got here. I was looking for an affordable place mostly because I had no health insurance at the time. I was very surprised by the quality of care I received during my first visit; although we have health insurance now, we still go to Clinica Corazon Hispan because they don't try to do unnecessary tests just to get money out of you. They take care of you fast, and in a very friendly manner.(Nos mudamos a Houston hace tres años, y me enferme justo después de que llegamos aquí. Yo estaba buscando un lugar asequible sobre todo porque no tenía seguro de salud en el momento. Me sorprendio mucho la calidad de la atención que recibí durante mi primera visita; aunque tenemos un seguro de salud ahora, todavía vamos a Clínica Corazón Hispan porque no tratan de hacer pruebas innecesarias sólo para obtener dinero. Te atienden rapido, y de una manera muy amable.

WOMEN'S OBGYN CARE PLLC
I went to this doctor for a well women's exam October 2015 and they charged me a deductible I wasn't supposed to pay so I got a refund. The doctor was nice and informative. The only reason why I give 2 stars. I called her office January 2016 for a birth control prescription, I couldn't get it for some reason and had to go back to see her and pay additional money just to talk to her. At my appointment she got pulled into a surgery so they offered another doctor who could see me, who was nice & informative as well. Yet when I get my insurance claim they charge me for a women's exam that I only get free once a year. The doctor simply talked to me and I got charged for an exam through my insurance I never had. The reason why I give 2 stars is because they have gotten my paper work wrong twice now and when I have requested a call back I didn't get one for 3 days.

Dr. Mattioli's office and his staff are very courteous and friendly, they greeted me as soon as i walked into their office. I went in for a lasik consultation, hoping to get lasik done after wearing glasses for almost 20 years. The doctor answered all my questions and concerns, i had a thorough full exam and the cost was credited into my lasix surgery fee, as soon as he told me i was a good candidate for lasik surgery, we set up an appointment and the nurses helped me figure out the financial stuff. the day of the procedure went very well, everything was thoroughly explained to me and the technology was very impressive. I would definitely recommend him to all my family and friends. I am very pleased with my surgery and i plan on keeping him on as my regular eye doctor.

Sacred Heart Emergency Center
my daughter dislocated her kneecap while dancing. I'm an ER nurse but when I saw her I panicked and did not know what to do.. thank goodness the dance studio knows about this emergency center. As soon as we got there, we were taken to their beautiful trauma room and the ER nurse and Doctor were both @ my daughters bedside. Xray was done within minutes and the result was back just as fast. We were out of there in under 30 minutes with my daughter in a knee immobilizer and crutches. Being an ER nurse, I am really impressed at the quality and efficiency of their services and how thoughtful and caring they were. I got a call the following day to check on my daughter... now that is what I would call five star service!!
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.
