Nicholas J Masciotra MD
After seeing Dr. Masciotra for multiple years and h being very aware of my condition and how rapidly it exacerbates, I have been extremely ill for over s week. He did prescribe an antibiotic which I greatly appreciate, however as the problem rapidly worsened and my sinuses swelled closed I phoned his service Sat. Only to ask if he would phone in a steroid which helps almost immediately. I received a call back from his answering service and was told he would not call anything in over the weekend... Even knowing very well the problem and rapid exacerbation. He had them tell me to call office Mon.--LABOR DAY! For an appt. I called 2 weeks ago and the "couldn't fit me in til after mid- Sept.! Yet he thinks I'm not trying to get in to SEE him!! I hope he has a wonderful partying weekend while I'm in bed sitting upright with no sleep because my sinus cavities are swollen shut. And painful, fever, swollen face, etc. steroids are not controlled, addicting and he has to puts me on them when I get this ill. Thank you Dr. Masciotra I hope yo enjoyed your weekend.

I trust Dr. Massoud with my life. He's never, ever been wrong in diagnosing me and his bedside manner is impeccable! I referred my best friend to him and she cried because she said she never had a doctor that was as busy as he was that day, yet he took the time to calm her down and LISTEN to her most of all. He is the BEST!! You are important to him if you are his patient. Other doctors treat you like numbers. Dr. Massoud goes above and beyond what any patient would expect and he's also on the Board of Doctors at Memorial Medical Center. Dr. Massoud is the entire package. It just doesn't get any better than him!

You would absolutely love Dr. Mathur. He is very professional and his bedside manner is the absolute best! He explains things in a way that makes it easy to understand. He gives you his recommendations and explains what might happen if you do not follow them. He has always been so very pleasant and I love having him for my endocrinologist!

Most caring, detail-oriented doctor you will ever have the opportunity to be treated by. Personally reviews all labs and calls with the first sign of any medical concerns. "Thank You" for caring, it's not just a job!

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.
