Rooney Michael J MD
He operated on me deliberately and knowingly without anaesthesia. He ruined my hearing on purpose. When I was only two, he knowingly and deliberately tortured me which destroyed my hearing, my trust in authority figures, as my bird that doctors care about patients. I now have been maimed and am dealing with the PTSD he (among others) caused me without the benefit of treatment as thanks to him I remember doctors are my enemy. I didn't get a high school education thanks to him. (75% of the grade was on your ability to brad notes, an ability I never had thanks to Dr Rooney knowingly and deliberately costing me my hearing. (I have to see and/or feel people talk due to low frequency hearing loss) so now I look at minimum wage jobs as a "step up" compared to my current job. I will never hear my husband talk if he doesn't touch me first, I will never be able to just listen to another person. I will never attend college. I will never trust another medical professional, I cannot even watch television without closed captioning. Doctor Rooney knowingly and deliberately with malice aforethought

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.
