Dr. Amanda R Schiefer, MD
I had a hypoparathroidectomy. Dr. Amanda Reagan Schiefer was my Endocrinologist. She diagnosed me with hypoparathyroidism and recommended surgery. She explained everything to me, in detail, about the surgery and what to expect afterwards. In my opinion, Dr. Schiefer is an excellent doctor and I would highly recommend her to anyone having thyroid problems.

Lauren Treadwell MD
This rating is directed mainly toward John the Nursing Assistant who displays a lack of professionalism when communicating with patients treated at this facility. Several telephone messages were left for return calls regarding my Mother's prognosis relating to her kidney lab results. He was not aware of the test dates and failed to inform that my Mother required further treatment from a kidney specialist due to abnormal lab results. I explained that we should have been contacted based on these concerns particularly after 5 phone calls since October. He firmly and disrespectfully asked "are you talking to me?! And then slammed the phone to disconnect. I called back and asked that Dr. Treadwell call back based on his conduct or further action would be taken. This is the third time that no return calls were made per my request. I have filed a complaint with the State Board as well as the board of ethics regarding John's unacceptable behavior toward his patients. The Nurse prior to John's service was more appreciated.

Gebhart, Leland D Dr
Gebhart wasn't my doctor, but he covered for my doctor until I was released after a C-section. I was supposed to go home with 2 drugs for pain but went with only one since I'm allergic to the Ibuprofen in the other medicine he was sending me home with. When I called the clinic for a refill of the medicine I could take, I was made to feel like a druggie.
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.
