Thaker & Brahmhatt
No experience with Dr. Thaker, but Dr. Brahmbhat has demonstrated an utter disregard for patient comfort and standards of care. After a friend of mine went to him and shared her experience I was shocked by the techniques employed for his female exams. I also work in medicine (though not as a physician) and went to several of my colleagues to ask about his methods for answers/reassurance. They confirmed to me, multiple times that his technique was non-standard, and expressed concern for the well-being of my friend. As a medical professional I am shocked by the quality of treatment provided, and greatly concerned for my friend, who now has to undergo the emotional fallout of such treatment. She is in the process of filing a formal complaint through the medical board.My sincere advice is to seek medical care elsewhere.

Mark Head, MD
Dr. Head is a good and caring doctor who listens to what you say and does not jump to extensive testing which is not required.

Doctor Thacker
Makes no sense that he's my assigned doctor through my insurance and I try to call and make an appointment and the soonest he could see me is 3 mos. Crazy I bet I do wait. Guess I'm changing providers

Great doctor! Easy to talk to doctor that yearns to understand what is going on with you. Dr. Head will prescribe needed meds but he also talks about how diet and exercise can avoid the need for some of those. It's those sorts of things that let me know that he cares about his patients just as much as he cares about the money he makes caring for them.
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.
