This place really laid an egg. I see this doctor in the yellow pages and under her name it said skin care. I called to make an appt. for my daughter for dry scalp. They scedule her an appt. for the next day. When i get there i see the sign on the door says ears, nose and throat dr. so i ask if im in the right place. I said i have an appt. with a dermatologist for my daughter. They said no this isn't a dermatologist but you are in the right place we have your name in our books. After i fill out the paper work and they call us back they said so why are you coming in today and i said she has bad dry scalp. And they thought i was the because of dry mouth. REALLY!! I dont know about the dr at this place but the receptionist doesn't know how to do there job.

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.
