Baker, Katrina D, MD
We recently had our fourth baby and had such a great experience that we wanted to write a review to help anyone looking for a great obgyn. Avoiding unnecessary induction or c-section was something really important to us so we spent a lot of time researching who would be the best Dr. for our family. Especially since our three other children were all born past their due dates, and perfectly healthy, but larger than average size. There were so many positive reviews about Dr Baker that we wanted to talk with her, but I was concerned that she might not be supportive of natural birth because she specializes in high risk pregnancies. I met with her anyways, and am so glad that I did. She did a great job listening to our concerns, and expressed support for our plan for an all natural childbirth. I loved her warn personality and that she really took time each visit to answer any questions that I had, and offer advice to help relieve some of the discomforts that I was experiencing. I also appreciated that all of her staff were professional and courteous. Some weeks there was a bit of a wait, but that is the nature of seeing any obgyn, and if Dr. Baker was out for a delivery the front staff was really good about letting the patients know in case they wanted to reschedule. As the pregnancy progressed I really appreciated the time she took to go over our birth-plan, and that she did not push for induction when baby was healthy but taking her time join us. Finally at 41 weeks one day Alice decided to make her appearance, in her own time, and her own way. Holding our sweet new little baby we were overcome with love, and so thankful that we found such a wonderful obgyn who really cares for her patient, and their well being. Based on her experience and knowledge as well as great bedside manor we would definitely recommend her to our friends and family.

I loved going to Dr. Vo he is very down to earth. Up front and honest. Doesn't take any bull from people same as you wouldnt from him. Tells you like it is. I will miss going to see him and it's all because of my wonderful (not) insurance. Thank you Dr Vo for everything you did for me.

I was absolutely impressed with my initial visit with Paula Sandoval and each return visits I continue to be impressed. I have never in my life had blood drawn without a huge bruise being left and yesterday I had blood drawn and NO bruise!

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.
