I was so thankful my boys were able to be seen, and there was not a long wait :) The Staff were super friendly. My kiddos recieved amazing care. I must say I would have given the clinic 5stars, but there were a few misunderstanding/communication problems. I was told my children's scripts would be called over to the nearest CVS by my Apt, but that was a lie it was futher away from were we lived...then dr/nurse did not call scripts over for both children just one.... Then when I called I was told they would call in meds for other child it took a while for that to be done. FYI CVS in Gladstone, Mo off 72nd and N. Oak Trafficway is very slow and they could use a class for customer service.

I don't understand way everyone is giving this office bad reviews I've been going to this office for physical therapy and was seeing Jason Gearhat and never had one problem with none of the stuff always friendly. If I ever have to do physical therapy again this will be the place I go always felt like I was wanted there no problems.Thank You Jason Gearhat

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.
