I was impressed with Patricia Keller NP. She is very knowledgeable and open to alternative medicine methods and natural remedies as well as traditional medicine. I had the start of bronchitis, and the steroid tablets she prescribed brought help within hours. My turmeric tea/ Golden milk and an antihistamine have me feeling so much better. Trying to build up my immunity level with both natural and traditional medicine is working. The Dexamethasone tablets was the boost I needed to knock out the inflamation. I am 61 with arthritis and also bursitis in my hip. I turned to Turmeric to help my joints rather than too much ibuprophen. Patricia Keller NP also gave advice on her gluten free diet helping her immune system. I appreciated the services I received.

I was having trouble waking up in the middle of the night, which is not typical for me. It was going on for a few weeks and I was getting frustrated. A couple of treatments and herb pills and I was back to myself in a little over a week. Thank you; I will definitely be back!
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.
