Lake Los Angeles Community Clinic
I recently had a disability due to a medical condition. I have them the state dusability paperwork & a paper I needed signed for my work 2 weeks later they are not done & the doctor is on vacation. They said they will not be done for another after arguing with the nurse on the phone she said it would be another 2 to 3 weeks. What kind of service is that. I have needs and now I have to wait to file my disability and not collect while I am unable to work

Molina Medical Centers
The doctor is really friendly. It's not a long wait compared to other medical centers, about an hour. Takes about a month to get an appointment. They do what you ask for and they give you the prescriptions you need. The only downfall is that if you get tests done, they don't notify you even if they say they are, you would have to call them for the results and they'd make another appointment for you to go in because they can't tell you through the phone.
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.
