Dr Aziz is a very competent Cardiologist. A relative of mine had been seen by another Cardiology Group. His symptoms were obviously cardiac in nature, with a positive past history but his cardiologist did not give any credence to his complaints. One of my relatives friends suggested that he should go to Dr. Aziz as he has heard great reviews. My relative was seen by Dr Aziz and was sent directly to St. Joes for a 4 vessel bypass. If it was not for Dr. Aziz my relative would have had a massive heart attack which would have resulted in death. Now i have told many a friend about Dr Aziz and his wonderful group and have taken my mother to him. I know he is a compassionate Dr who will give you the time of day. Over the years we have met several Cardiologist in this group and I must tell you I am glad to say that I would trust anyone one in this group and you will too. If you have any doubts, stop in to their clinic and ask anyone sitting in the lobby their opinion. Many like my cousin have switched to this Cardiology Group. Thank you Hear Care physicians and staff...Love you all

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.
