    They are professional, friendly, and compassionate. The downside is the closest branch or usable ATM is in Sierra Vista. That's a long drive from Green Valley. But we have banked with them for almost

He is a great doctor. Tells you what needs to be done, listens to what you have to say, not just run in and then back out again.Seems to me to have the patients best interest at heart.

Horrible experience. If you are really in severe, go somewhere else! I went there a few weeks ago at 7:00 pm on a Friday because I had a bad gout attack in my foot. They thought I was faking it to get vicodin! The Nurse Practitioner named Tia had an attitude with me as soon as she walked in. She didn't even look at my good foot to compare with the swollen and hot bad foot, and looked at my bad foot for only 3 or 4 seconds. She offered a steroid shot. I said let me have it, but what about my excruciating pain? She She said, "Vicoden is out. You aren't getting it, it's now class 2 or 3 or something like that. The red haired punk medical student that was with her laughed when I said that if you could have this in your foot, it would help you understand and be a better doctor one day. So she offers to write a prescription for ultram. We got to the pharmacy 30 minutes later and it had not even been called in. The pharmacist called back up there and got the prescription. I was so mad. While waiting, I called the Taylor clinic to ask who was in charge, and the guy who answered said "I am." I told him it's not acceptable, they were not busy, 30 minutes and it still wasn't called it. He then LIED to me saying, "..oh no, I called and personally spoke to the pharmacist myself." Yes, schmuck, you spoke to him after he called you looking for the prescription! I have a CHOICE. So I CHOOSE to NEVER STEP foot in there again. If you are really hurting, I suggest going to the ER or drive to Tyler.

I haven't been to the office yet, but I was impressed by the way the nurse called me back within the hour to answer my questions and to help me with my appointment for next week.

If I could give a lower score I would. On 2 separate occasions I have taken my kids in for sinus problems when their regular doctor could not get them in that day. We waited over an hour in the exam room after they ran a strep test. I had to go out and ask if they had forgotten about us. They said on both occasions they test was positive. Both times my kids got worse and I had to go back and see our regular doctor to get something that would help. I gave them a second chance but there will NOT be a third. UGH! So disappointed.

Dr. Johansen is not a Doctor you want to go to for a colonoscopy. He don't put you out when he does it and it hurts big time to be awake while he is doing the procedure. Find any other Doctor besides him.

Dr. Lakkadi and his entire staff are courteous, kind, and professional. Doc has eliminated almost all of my back pain without narcotic meds. 5 Stars

Horrible! Worst service in town. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Too slow, kind of rude, and they don't even test you for anything.

Got right in and the wiring room was full. I was very pleased with the professional service they gave to my daughter. I will come back.

They do not take into consideration the financial difficulties of their patients and, apparently, use already opened dressing supplies on multiple patients. After lancing a cyst on my son-in-law's neck, they required he come back into the clinic daily for wound packing. My daughter asked if her family members, who are nurses, could pack the wound for him. Initially, they refused. My daughter and SIL have limited income ans no reliable transportation. They have to borrow a vehicle to get to Longview. They also work alternating shifts. My SIL does not drive. I went with them to their 3rd visit and explained that there are multiple nurses in the family who can change the dressing and requested they send dressing supplies home with him so he could have someone change the dressing at home. The doctor or nurse practitioner (no name tag) refused. He said if they couldn't come in every day and wanted to change it at home to only change it every other day, buy the supplies themselves, and come back in 4 days. When I asked what would be done with the supplies opened and used on my SIL (certainly charged to insurance) he indicated that it (the packing strip) would be used again, on a different patient. He became angry and kicked the biohazard container when I pressed the issue of whether or not the supplies were being charged to the insurance company and questioned the practice of reusing the packing strip on a different patient. If you can avoid this place at all, DO SO!
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.
